But, perhaps, to be true philosophers, we mortals should not be conscious of so living or so striving. So soon as I hear that such or such a man gives himself out for a philosopher, I conclude that, like the dyspeptic old woman, he must have "broken his digester."

General Philosophy Thread

I have started reading few phil books (namely by Schopenhauer, Heidegger, and Nietzsche) and I came to realize that it's virtually impossible to remember all the details from their books. Sure I get the gist and the main idea of a paragraph or section, but I feel that very quickly I forget the tiny details that build up the main point of a passage and this loss bothers me. Does that happen for you guys as well? Do you annotate your phil books? For philosophy majors, did being forced to read phil for school make you lose that hunger for exploring philosophy? In other words did that mysticism and drive to explore new perspectives diminished as a result of being forced to read certain books and interpret them the way the professor wants you to? Lastly, do you guys enjoy or have to opportunity to discuss different philosophers with people around you? I feel that at my university there's very few individuals from the undergraduate student body who are wise and/or read enough to discuss philosophies with or simply to debate.

So the Trolley question got me wondering; in every thread they pose the question, some anons take a position, and then what usually happens is other anons try to either find flaws in this thinking either in general terms or applying it to other situations. But my question is, why must we hold absolutely rigid ethical positions? Why can I not say, in this instance it makes sense for me to approach the issue from a utilitarian perspective, and then when later a different issue presents itself, decide that an egoist approach would be better suited. I understand that the factors which enable us to determine what we think would be a 'better suited' ethical position for the scenario do themselves constitute in a sense some innate core ethical tenets, but why is the idea that our line of thinking in the present scenario must be applicable to others an absolutely necessary one?

Write a short story based on a prompt which is posted. It can be as awful as you want it to be, the only wrong answer is to not write.
