    I am just following tablet around now! BWAHAHA


    But, I took philosophy. The good point about it is that you cannot be wrong. Great college class! I had no tests and only had to write what I thought each day. Although, I did actually try to write my ideas about the world.

    If you want to know about philosophy, first you have to think about why you want to know about philosophy... ha ha ha

    Sorry for the looong post...
    Pizza, what are you searching for? A definition? There are many...

    • A belief (or system of beliefs) accepted as authoritative by
    some group or school

    • The rational investigation of questions about existence and
    knowledge and ethics

    • Any personal belief about how to live or how to deal with a
    situation

    • Literally, the love of, including the search after, wisdom; in
    actual usage, the knowledge of phenomena as explained
    by, and resolved into, causes and reasons, powers and
    laws

    • Investigation of the nature, causes, or principles of reality,
    knowledge, or values, based on logical reasoning rather
    than empirical methods

    ....and many other permutations of the above. Webster's even adds the following:
    JcMinJapan said,"If you want to know about philosophy, first you have to think about why you want to know about philosophy... ha ha ha". All joking aside, that statement carries alot of weight.

    There are alot of resources out there on the internet that publish excerpts from classical and contemporary philosophy. Pick some names from a list...read about some of their ideas...see if you connect with something.

    I hope I have not torn off in the wrong direction with this, but I was unsure where you wanted to go. If I have failed, please accept my humble apologies.

    It has always been my philosophy that it is easier to beg forgiveness, than to ask permission...

    I'll leave you with this:

    Doc

    i do like you philosophy doc, however i think to have one philosophy states that you are only ever one person, i think at times we can be several different people depending upn our mood, hence there can never be one true philosphy for one self
