    Why don't men watch TV?

    This is an international forum. I haven't watched tv since high school, personally, which is like a decade and a half ago.

    Existentialism- Life is suffering

    That's more or less what I feel about Schopenhauer. He seems more clear headed about reality and doesn't fall victim to romanticisng his view of the human condition. I would say most people, whether they realize it or not, have a loose acceptance of reality that aligns with Schopenhauer's. He's...

    Existentialism- Life is suffering

    There isn't a philosophical tradition that was left by Nietzsche, unlike Hegel or Marx. Nietzsche's philosophy is more of an outcry against the nihilism he felt, not an actual affirmation of life. He's more or less a dead end philosophically, much like Camus.

    Existentialism- Life is suffering

    Taken head on in isolation of the philosophical tradition, I guess that's true, but German "philosophers" who fashioned themselves after Schopenhauer usually took on more suicidal tones, like you well know, Mainlander. Nietzsche was a huge fanboy of Mainlander, even after foregoing Schopenhauer...

    Existentialism- Life is suffering

    Schopenhauer's pemissism is simply a road to suicide. This only happens when you divorce the good transcendence of life from life, in whatever form it's in. To me life is contemplation. But after that, I think only a trandscent mode of life can really season our lives- thus religion. "You are...

    Feeling very depressed about life.

    What kind of job do you have? Traveling a lot should give you lots of things to talk about. Generally when meeting new people you shouldn't really expecting anything at all, but keep a cordial manner and be able to banter. Just be interested in the things they talk about, etc. And tbh...

    can matter and everything in universe eternal

    On the train one day, I thought about Kant's conception of time and space, which are more impositions of our sensory perceptions on reality. This means that time in itself does not exist, but only within our sensory perceptions. Perhaps that means each moment is eternal, because time is just a...

    Cravings to kill and schizophrenia?

    One common trait of schizophrenics is that they feel overly scrutinized and feel persecuted. The need to kill is an irrational decision made consciously due to that intense and delusional feeling of persecution. It has nothing to do with a lack of empathy- their sense of fight or flight...

    How you overcome depression

    Find things you like, make a routine. Change your scenery. Find things to be grateful for, and call up friends you haven't heard from in a while. There's a reason why our ancestors practiced rituals.

    Discussing Nietzsche and the Will to Power

    Meh. His moral philosophy is sort of self-defeating in my opinion. Not everyone can be a Nietzschean, and if they were, society would not function. Some part of society has to be subservient to the ubermesh, just by consequence. I think he just had a very elementary view of life, because of his...

    Binary logic propositions applied to non-atomic elements

    Well, it isn't reasoning, in the first place- is what I would argue. A statement about will or will not something will happen is not a statement of probability, and a statement of probability is not a type of reasoning. A statement of will something will happen or not also is not a type...

    Any link between INTP personalities, or general Intellectuals and Depression.

    Most intelligent people are those who were unplugged from their domestic culture during development, meaning there is less of a social network which leaves him or her more vulnerable to loneliness. But depression isn't something that's rare these days. I would link depression more with economics...

    I'm not sure what the best version of myself would be, but I do have several interests which I would pursue if money isn't a problem. Not in any particular order, but first, have a general understanding of the philosophy of religion in the contemporary world. This I would pursue by enrolling...

    Ah yes, anime, good times. There's another messaging board I used to frequent, where the anime enthusiasts would wait for an episode to come out then torrent it like mad.. good times.

    e_e am I ENTP?

    Ne, the ENTP dominant function is extroverted iNtuition, which, intuition, is introverted in nature. ENTP is just an inside out INTP, if you see their cognitive functions. Ti-Ne, Si-Fe into Ne-Ti, Fe-Si. They're mostly similar but generally an ENTP is more goofy. Both are more or less inept at...

    materialism

    Marx doesn't really have a 'philosophy of materialism'. His philosophy was the rejection of the metaphysical, but doesn't really give a reason as to why he rejects it. The philosophy he creates is more of a philosophy of history, that society messes up and then gets better again through the...

    My take on MBTI

    @Kormak Oh haha, I see. Typology to me, isn't something that's set. I also affirmed myself as INTP, (and interestingly INTj on socionics myself), but over time and phases and experiences, it seems like the types change. Types to me more are descriptions of circumstance rather than a set...

    My take on MBTI

    After reading this topic, out of curiosity I took a test again on 16personalities. This time I got ESFJ-A, with the percentage distributions all in the 40%~60% range. I guess I'm a short-sighted retard ape, who's unreasonable and unstable and preachy, but also a masturbator and a narrow minded...

    Egocentric "Natural" Morality

    I see that Cog still fundamentally misunderstands profoundly what religion is. Religion is not ethics, nor is it an ideology. Religion isn't a question of ought, they dogmatically lay out what is, then tries to answer them. There is suffering. Why? I exist. Why? I feel like if you leave this...

    The future...

    Oh, I mean Hegelian in regards to his Absolute Spirit notion. "Humanity" seems more like a word that is charged with energy, something that's going forward with a goal, like his Absolute. I was just musing that it's more abstract rather than something that's physical, that is, the species.

    What is the limit of secular tolerance?

    I'm not confident in saying this, but I'm not sure whether 'the secular' is in the domain of the irreligious. The secular is simply a domain of our shared community and culture, to the extent that it can be shared, between all the streams of cultures within society. The 'secular' is irreligious...

    Why philosophy sucks

    Like Serac said, philosophy is just a fancy way of saying 'reasoning' or 'argumentation'. First philosophy, the "philosophy" of the pre-Socratics, was basically a mash up of ontology and chemistry. Everything.. is water... or air.. or fire, and so on. Any meta-scientific debate, any political...

    The future...

    I don't have anything to add, but I'm just wondering if the term 'humanity' is inherently a Hegelian term. What is humanity? All the collective homosapiens in the universe? If we're talking about the future of the homosapein species, I guess we won't be extinct? If we're talking about the...

    How do you arrive at you morality?

    For me morality is more emotion than logic. I'm a bit inclined to David Hume's position on the matter. So basically, morality is ingrained in us- the ontology of the imprint is a much more interesting question. Why do we have it.. where are we going with it, etc.

    No, I'm pretty sure it's epistemology. Empiricism is a branch of epistemology, that our knowledge is only acquired by the senses. I'm afraid you're categorically, flat out wrong.
