I am a philosopher by nature. I have been in love with ideas and the search for wisdom for as long as I can remember. I love to debate and discuss ideas, and analyze global as well as local events. I will be doing philosophy until I die. It still surprises me that someone is willing to pay for me to do something I would be doing anyway! I am grateful. I don’t think philosophy is ever going to stop being needed, although I certainly can see there are times when it is more or less valued in societies. Currently we seem to live in times when it is less valued, as science holds the upper hand. But, the need for philosophy is not going to go away. As long as there are issues and concerns that philosophers can help us sort out, possible solutions philosophers can help us imagine, and theoretical arguments that need to be made to justify decisions we must make and actions we must take, philosophy is going to be there. Thus, I am not worried about philosophy’s future.
