What have I learned about Philosophy?

To answer this or any philosophical question, I must first define the key terms in the question. Learned – 1, Acquired knowledge or skill. 2, Become informed or acquainted. Philosophy – 1, The science dealing with the general cause and principles of things. 2, Personal attitude.

Now that I have a clear understanding of the key terms I am ready to answer the question at hand. The knowledge that I have acquired about the science dealing with the general cause and principles of things is that I must be clear on my terms. I believe that this is the most important part of Philosophy. If I attempt to answer this or any other question without a clear understanding of the key terms I might incorrectly analyze the question. I can not deal with the general cause and principles of things if I’m not clear on their exact meaning.

I have also acquired knowledge about others’ personal attitudes. I have learned that there are many different Philosophies one can have and that one should not prejudge on that Philosophy. I have learned that in most people’s minds they are right. There are many different perspectives that one could take on the same topic. One instance is many women believe that it is not moral to have sex on a first date. I on the other hand as do many men do not believe that it is immoral to have sex on the first date. Is either of us wrong? No, we both just have different perspectives on the subject, and neither of us should be too quick to judge the other on their perspective.

We all grew up in different areas with different friends and role models. These role models and friends have a great effect on the way we perceive things. Many little girls grow up with their moms and dads telling them how special their bodies are and that they should only share this special gift with their husbands. On the other hand, little boys receive praise when they get their first date, kiss, etc. Is it either of our faults that we think the way we do? No, it is just the way we have been taught.

To sum up, what I have learned about Philosophy, I believe that in order to analyze this or any Philosophical question I should be clear on the key terms of the question. I have also learned that there are many different people with very different Philosophies and that we should not be too quick to judge others Philosophy. We have all had many different life experiences that cause us to think the way we do, and we are not to blame if they are different than others.
