Philosophy for Beginners

Philosophy for Beginners

Ak Curiosity is what a philosopher is most fond of, because philosophy has no other beginning. ”Plato

Philosophy not only includes geniuses, but also eccentric thinkers who are thought to be geniuses by all. This is in fact something that everyone does when they are not too busy with their daily work or just when they have the opportunity to wonder what life and the universe are.

We humans are innate investigative creatures, and we cannot stop wondering about the world around us and our place in it  . We are also equipped with a strong intellectual ability, so we do not only wonder, but also  reason . Although we do not always realize, we think philosophically when we reason.

Philosophy is not much about finding answers to the basic questions; rather it is the process of trying to find these answers and uses reasoning rather than accepting the principal opinions or traditional provisions without question. The earliest Greek and Chinese philosophers were the thinkers who were looking for answers with logical reasons, which were not content with profound explanations of religion and customs. And just as we shared our views with our friends and colleagues, they discussed their ideas with each other and even established “schools için to teach not only their conclusions, but the methods of achieving those conclusions. Encourage students to challenge and criticize ideas; in this way, they would have led to the development of these ideas or the emergence of new and different ideas.

There is a common misconception that philosophers alone have reached all conclusions in a desolate place; however, this is the case in very few cases. New ideas arise from discussion, analysis, analysis and criticism of other people’s ideas.

The most prototypical example in this sense is  Socrates . He left no written documents and even no great ideas that were the product of his thought. In fact, he is proud to say that he is the smartest person because he knows that he knows nothing. Its entire legacy is to create a tradition of debate and debate where other people’s assumptions can be questioned to gain a deeper understanding and reveal the basic truths.

The writings of Plato , the student of Socrates  , are in the form of dialogues in which Socrates is almost the main character. Most of the later philosophers adopted the method of dialogue to present their ideas; instead of expressing their thoughts and conclusions in simple terms, they put forward arguments and counter arguments. A philosopher who presents his ideas to the world is likely to encounter comments that begin with yerine Yes, but ”“ or el Suppose yerine rather than a total acceptance.

In fact, philosophers have violently opposed each other on almost every aspect of philosophy. For example, Plato and his student  Aristotle  developed opposing views on fundamental philosophical questions and, with these different approaches, caused philosophers to experience greater differences of opinion than ever before. This sparked further debate and encouraged new and fresh ideas.

But is it not remarkable that these philosophical problems are still debated and discussed? Thinkers, why can’t they give definite answers? What are these issues in which philosophers ponder their secrets? Here is a brief introduction…


–  Problem of existence and knowledge
–  Problem of logic and language
–  Problem of morality, art and politics
–  Problem of religion for East and West
