OW CAN PHILOSOPHY BE USEFUL TODAY? WHAT PURPOSE DOES IT SERVE?

Like a blade that has been fashioned for the purpose of cutting through the fabric of reality to get at truth, Philosophy has been the weapon of choice from Thales onward. The Pre-Socratics philosophized mainly about external reality; that is, they sought to make sense of the world around them. Some attempted to comprehend the substance and origin of the Universe (The Milesians), while others denied sense experience (The Eleatics). Socrates, on the other hand, conceived of new ways of wielding the blade of Philosophy, this time focusing on inward realities rather than the external world. Philosophy, Socrates would articulate, is best used when seeking to establish a good life.
