Philosophy used to be the place you’d go for answers, it seems. Psychology and anthropology and sociology hadn’t really kicked in yet, so philosophy was what you had to explain the oddities of the world.
I never studied philosophy. The one class I was interested in met at 8:00 in the morning and I found I wasn’t QUITE interested enough to think through the early morning fog that clouds my brain at that hour. I’m not sure I even fully understand what philosophy means in this day and age or even, in previous ages. It seems to me to be a methodology for thinking about the world. If I had any philosophy in me, it is a fluid one that shifted from seeing the world as a stage to seeing the world as a game to a Feldenkrais lesson to a Rasaboxes exercise to a viewpoints exploration to a Choose Your Own Adventure and so on.
