What does /his/ think so far? It's actually not as terrible as I was expecting.

You could do all that on your own though, if you have the necessary patience and willpower.
If you don't go STEM or are not incredibly lucky or well connected you're fucked

Can you explain the benefit of wanking into a sock?

To be honest, family, in dont see much difference between philosophy and masturbation
>>
>>674035
But you do see a difference between studying STEM and masturbation?
>>
what part of philosophy isn't incoherent psychobabble?

Yeah.
One makes me money
>>
>>674051
So it's about your personal gain.

How is this any different again? Are you saying a philosopher doesn't make good money? Because they do.
>>
>>674050
Analytic philosophy.
>>
I'm actually surprised they're doing this. I also considered the Green brothers as the "Philosophy? Who needs that useless old shit, we've got SCIENCE!" types
>>
>>674064
>Are you saying a philosopher doesn't make good money? Because they do.
Not really, and even if they did, unless they're Zizek or something, they're still making less than STEMs
>>
>>674064
its not about personal gain.
Society has to pay money to maintain universities.
Thus, people who get an academic degree must be able to somehow give this invesment back to society
>>
>>674003
>You could do all that on your own though, if you have the necessary patience and willpower.
And most people don't. Which is part of the problem.
>>
>>674076
Your point being?

>Society has to pay money to maintain universities.

So what, society also pays money to maintain McDonald's.

Are you saying a McDonald's job is more valuable than the 0.0001% of your tax money that is granted to universities?

training people to think good in an age overpopulated with people who don't sounds prety beneficial to me
>>
>>674051
>not getting paid to masturbate
>>
>>674117
what exactly is "think good"?
Dont STEM majors think good?
For somebody who studies thinking good you sure do use vague terms
>>
>>674117
The problem is that the average STEMtard doesn't understand that philosophy, history, and all the other humanities subjects are hard to quantify the value of, until they are lost to us forever.

If nobody knew what Euclid, Plato, Archimedes said and wrote, which could happen in a future scenario, nobody would even know why Newtonian physics works as it does.

But of course, this doesn't vex the average sperglord doing his Bachelor's degree in Physics at all.

Are you 30? Zelda is pretty mediocre compared to the games they've released now.

>what exactly is "think good"?

Critical thinking, reading comprehension, communication, better understanding oneself and others, self control, empathy.
>>
>>674117

and there's your problem

If money is your goal you should have gone for accounting or finance.
>>
>>673983
Interacting with students and faculty who are smart and read the same material as you.
>>
>>674076
Did it ever occur to you that money might not be the primary concern for some people?

In any case, when referring to the stereotype of a broke humanities major, philosophy is not the best example. It's one of the best among the humanities and ahead of several sciences, like Biology.

>>673983
You learn to think better. You have no idea how many people are just terrible at thinking or how bad you are yourself before you've taken an course in formal logic and argumentative reasoning.

Fun facts; my former philosophy teacher said he preferred fresh students who haven't taken any coursers before his since people in the humanities and social sciences use the word "knowledge" weirdly while STEM students can't get into their head that 1 litre of water weighting 1 kg isn't a logical necessity.
>>
>>675948
>1 litre of water weighting 1 kg isn't a logical necessity
What's the point of this line of reasoning?
>>
>>675948
>1 litre of water weighting 1 kg isn't a logical necessity.
What? They were just defined to be that way back when they were invented.

No STEM student wouldn't know this.
