Bad Philosophy ~ by deadondres

I don’t know how my rant against academic philosophers managed to disappear by itself but I found another post about it so I decided to repost it:

A thought – I love philosophy, when applying notions to everyday life.

But when it comes to professional discourse, the actual field itself – those prolix and extraneous terms and labels get wearisome, and stray too far from the emphasis.

It seems that people know everything about philosophy except for its utility.

This is not the only purpose it could have – instead it is used to fetishize knowledge.

The academics engender predatory capitalism and thought-control as much as any other.
