This. Philosophy is pretty much just useless word games nowadays. >>9507695
No they won't because professors have more useful shit to spend their time on that philosophy.>>9507767
This is actually pretty much true. Of course, there's probably areas where philosophy is useful, such as ethics (where they can discuss about arbitrary bullshit to infinity), but in any area dealing with the natural world, human cognition etc. philosophy is actually counter-productive. Turns out you can't just sit and reason your way to enlightenment, you need to experiment and deal with counter intuitive facts and harsh truths.>>9508064
What Popper did was basically calling out pseudoscientists, but nobody actually does science like Popper proposed.>>9508110>Philosophy gives you the tools to do science meaningfully, it will arm you with critical thought and reasoning
That's exactly what it doesn't do you pseudo-intellectual-in-denial. 2000 years of philosophical tradition and how many of them ever figured out free will is an illusion?>>9508428
Philosophy of science is actually kind of decent because it provides the scientists with somewhat of a bird's eye perspective on his own craft. Makes you reflect more over what you do. A useful example of philosophy of science could be investigating types of errors on science for example. It's not /completely/ useless.
