    Default Type Philosophy as a Field

    Question: what information element(s) do you see in the field of philosophy?

    (I am a philosophy major and am therefore interested to hear your answer...)

    Philosophy is a large and diverse field. I've all types into different areas of it except for Delta (at least I can't recall about Deltas right now).

    Do you think it is necessary to be more specific, what kind of philosophy are you interested to know about? I mean we can't compare rationalist with humanist philosophers, to me this is somewhat like comparing art with science.

    In my opinion Ni and Ti, though not exclusively (being abstracting, condensing and organising functions)

    Also Ne and Fe for psychosocial, political and moral philosophy (being observational of human systems)

    It might not be everyone's cup of tea, but in my honest opinion analytical philosphy is the only sensible "school" there is, and I find it regrettable that the continentals have given the whole field a bad name. Some of their writings are interesting for sure, but I see their intellectual value as equilevant to that of horoscopes, so they'd be much much better suited for the literature department. I mean, phenomenology? Existentialism? Psychoanalysis? Really?

    The Philosophies i like are probably really Ni related. The ones i dont probably arent.
    I would say that ethically you are still supposed to act as if you have unilateral responsibility; but simultaneously you have to be able to see the other as a fully autonomous, free, aware person.

    Medicalizing social problems has the additional benefit of rendering society not responsible for those social ills. If it’s a disease, it’s nobody’s fault. Yay empiricism.

    You can have a philosophy and not be XNXX. If you have an idiosyncratic perspective on the world (which you do if you're sentient) then you're set.

    I have little value to contribute at this point, but I'm hoping someone makes some good correlations between certain philosophies and IEs (that aren't all intro fxns)

    So you can use philosophy to justify why you don't need a bigger car, but the guy with the bigger car can fit more philosophy books in it than you

    Nice! This means humanity has a chance... I was not aware of it so far. I would like to relocate and have children there, is there a virus that can deliver Scandinavia from feminists beforehand?

    Fully agree, except I don't understand what you guys are defining as "continentals"? I mean I am not into this trivia, just what about Kant, Wittgenstein, Frege?...

    It surely is not everyone's cup of tea since anyway it is always the practical philowankers who keep mixing up the two things, I would say. Would you expect any of them to be able to make this discrimination?

    For reasons I might detail sometime, it is actually paramount for our evolution that the two branches split apart, that analytical philosophy takes its place outside the humanities. Among other applications, we can witness the disappearance of religions, including Atheism, and philosophers of your kind may take the route of entertainment, earning a honest income as professional stand-up sophists. If I look back into history, I am perhaps being utopic here, just hope dies the last.

    Meantime, please help yourself with one of these and feel free to humanly interpret it up your rear:

    I suspect you got me wrong here - just let me know if this was not the case and explain.

    I am talking about the lack of common ground between, in short graphic terms, the defenders of the real philosophy and the philowankers. Let us be realistic, there is no way they agree, it's either win or lose. Perhaps the current status quo seems natural to you, just to me and many before this is actually a regression. It was much better in the times of I. Kant, for instance, he was believing philosophy will be soon established as a science. Right, look the sort of things that happened meantime:

    I mean, the tradition that goes from (I'd argue) Aquinas to Descartes to Kant is very clearly a Ti sort of thing. You can even take it back to Aristotle. All very systematic thinkers, interested in dividing and specifying.

    By contrast, Hegel was a heavily Ni philosopher, both in his ideas of historical development and in how he writes: he has a very poetic style insofar as the flow of meaning is often very different than the temporal order of the words, i.e., a word half a paragraph down can totally change the meaning of a word three sentences prior. I haven't read heavily in Marx but i would assume the same, although the combination with the critique of capitalism suggests NiTe, whereas Hegel's mysticism is, to me, more indicative of NiFe. Haven't read Spinoza but I'd guess he's more of a Hegel type?

    Nietzsche's philosophy can be easily seen in terms of Se-valuing and Fi-devaluing, and his method of evaluating Christian texts for clues as to the psychological motivations and historical process of development of Judeo-Christian ethics suggests NiFe-valuing if not both in his ego block. Rousseau employs a somewhat similar method in "On the Origins of Inequality," yet doesn't feel like an Ni-ego to me. Almost certainly an ethical type, however, and my suspicion is Ni/Se over Ne/Si. Not sure if there is an essential typing prevalent in his writings in the way there is with Kant, or even Shakespeare (character as the Ni pattern of Fe emotional/expressional changes)

    Also I wonder if symbolic logic is more of a Ti thing or a Te thing? Insofar as it represents a system or schematic of logical operations one can perform on a proposition, it seems like Ti. But insofar as it can be seen as a way of externalizing, concretizing, and jargonizing language, it seems like it could be a kind of Te? Obviously can appeal to and be understood as both.

    Also do we particularly see extroverted functions in philosophy? I think it's easy to see introverted functions in philosophy (including Si, which is emphasized more heavily in eastern philosophy than western philosophy, likely due to the influence of Socrates/Plato setting the terms of debate) but it's perhaps more difficult to discern the extroverted functions in philosophical argument? I could be wrong.
    Not a rule, just a trend.

    IEI. Probably Fe subtype. Pretty sure I'm E4, sexual instinctual type, fairly confident that I'm a 3 wing now, so: IEI-Fe E4w3 sx/so. Considering 3w4 now, but pretty sure that 4 fits the best.

    Yes 'a ma'am that's pretty music...

    I am grateful for the mystery of the soul, because without it, there could be no contemplation, except of the mysteries of divinity, which are far more dangerous to get wrong.

    I don't know what you're asking.


    I hope that helps.
