So, about a month ago Bill Nye apparently gave an opinion piece on Philosophy. And some people who normally agree with Bill are responding in disagreement. As someone who took Philosophy in High School my understanding of Philosophy isn't foreign, but it's no where near expert either... And over the past 4 years it has definitely become foggy/rusty. So I could kind of see where Bill was coming from, but there was also that part for me that just sounded... off. Like something was being missed, but I really couldn't place my finger on what exactly. That ended up leading me here: And honestly? I'm still a bit lost. It seems like he had a lot to say, but the real meat/clarity of his arguments were lost (on me at least) from having to fit the explanation into the length of a YouTube video. But if there's one thing I remember clearly about Philosophy back in High School, it was always at it's prime when everyone could get involved in the discussion and gave their own viewpoints and perspectives. So, basically what is everyone else's thoughts on this? Do you agree with Bill? Disagree with Bill? Are you on the fence or simply unsure of what to make of it? Side Note: I remembered while typing this there's actually a Wait But Why article about the relation between Science and Philosophy Spirituality (derp). Worth a read for those who are fans of long wordy rants about not so simple topics (and/or need something to Procrastinate with for a while). But... If I'm recalling it all correctly, even here there seems to be some disagreement. Cause the article more seems to address individuals finding their own code on outlook to life, while the criticisms around Nye seem more focused on addressed specific laws such as "I think therefore I am" (again, I might be misunderstanding this horribly. If so PLEASE correct me). (Derp) So I should probably add an extra question (for those who bothered reading the side note) of "What do you personally find philosophy to be about?".
