"One of philosophy's distinguishing features is that it questions
everything and assumes nothing. Philosophy exposes and questions the assumptions which underlie our everyday thinking about the world, ourselves, our values and our beliefs."
Julian Baggini, Philosophy: Key Themes, p.1, PALGRAVE MACMILLAN.
Philosophy is for everyone. We are all born Philosophers. We begin our lives by asking annoying questions. Our Parents most of the time not able to satisfy or quench our deep desire to understand. We are then told we shouldn't think about things in that kind of way. Slowly but surely the philosopher within us all and our natural minds eye to know our world around us is suppressed. A child is the true Philosopher in my MIND.I WONDER why Philosophy is not taught in the British school system ? F3thinker !?
