hey /lit/ can you help me into philosophy? i know some surface-level eastern thought. i've read the tao te ching and the i ching. but i know nothing about the west. can you recommend me some good starting points? i assume that this question gets asked here a lot so sorry in advance
Not really. You are just more likely to be paired with opinionated professors who are almost always guaranteed to disagree with you at times and hold you accountable with a low grade. If you are strong in your STEM field, you are almost guaranteed to end your collegiate era with a good GPA. In Philosophy, you are more likely to end with a mediocre GPA because philosophy is partial to opinions in many cases... I wouldn't major in philosophy. I got a B in my intro class and said fuck that.
You must have had shit professors. I got an A in my intro class and argued the fuck out of the professor. Honestly, to the point the rest of the class just shut up and let us argue. It was pretty pathetic.
The numbers dont lie
