It is important to understand that we humans have the ability to improve our quality of living with our own minds. Though oblivion seems great, it is one of the most agonizing states to live in. Oblivion is the state where a person has yet to open their mind up to the endless possibilities that are accessible to the world. The ability to understand humans and their emotions is much more prominent in people who have had the opportunity to expand their horizons and open their minds to the world outside of their own existence.
To be able to understand philosophy is simple yet difficult. One might think it is as simple as the book, Interviewing A Regular Joe by John Rose. This book has a simple name, but as the reader continues to read the book, they will get to know how complex it might get. It provides the reader with the margin to question their surroundings and understand their own views about their world and everything that falls in between. The interview that is carried out in this book is excellent and will have the reader in a trance to wanting and reading more.
Besides putting a human in a state of questioning, philosophy helps with many more things, such as:
The ability to think about everything critically comes with an open mind. You must be willing to question everything that exists, wehther it is good or bad. A person must be willing to ruin their peace and reality in order to critically analyze their surrounding. However, philosophy helps a person seeks answers that they might not have sought before. It enlightens the part of the brain that seeks an understanding of a world outside of their self.
Helps Understand Different Perspectives
Readers of philosophy are able to question themselves and those who surround them. They are able to question and analyze situations that surround them and humanely assess them. This is when a person slowly realizes that other people process emotions differently and have different views as compared to themselves. A person will also realize that there are different morals that different people follow. Philosophy will help people identify what is morally correct regardless of their thoughts and perspectives. They can make morally sound decisions once they know how to work around philosophy.
Helps General Grooming
A person may not realize this, but personal grooming is a prominent outcome of philosophical learning. Once you break free from your mind and critically analyze yourself and your surrounding, you will try to improve the situations that you live in. You will be aware of the things that look good on you and those that need some alterations.
A person unexpectedly improves in their expression of speech and writing as well. This might come as a surprise, but people who are philosophically inclined have the ability to understand topics better and write about them in a more descriptive manner. Philosophy is a gift and should always be appreciated by those who receive it.
