What is philosophy? Those who are successful say they have one which stems from lessons they have learned that help them persevere.
What are philosophers like? One of the great philosophers in history found that “many of our common sense beliefs (that we come up with ‘au naturel’) are false”. Philosophers work at understanding the true enduring relationship we have with our world as human beings.
How has philosophy changed the world? “Leaders”, that is individuals with influence ought to have good ethics.
Leaders without such qualities are tyrannical and will ultimately lead to the fall of the group. Since philosophy deals with our relationship to the entire planet and life, philosophy affects all of us.
