Thoughts of philosophy Jacob hose

January 19: I am excited to understand how philosophy works and how I can apply it to society. I am nervous that I might not understand certain materials at first.

January 20: commandment 1: means to be open to suggestions of how the existence of time and life began. Commandment 2: means to question others claims until you have been convinced of the idea. Commandment 3: always believe the others who speak the truth. Commandment 4: split each problem apart to understand the internal problem within it. Commandment 5: to have a stable argument gather enough components to protest your theory. Commandment 6: understand the opposite argument from yours in order to strengthen the weak points in yours. Commandment 7: be open to change, alter, or reform your arguments position. Commandment 8: pursue a simpler argument than a complex one. Commandment 9: make your ideas personal to you but be able identify truth. Commandment 10: let the simple closure act as a open door to continue will a better argument.

January 26: the most interesting thing I learned while researching was that Plato thought about government styles including democracy which was rarely thought about in his age.

January 31: if I had lived in eastern philosophy times I would have followed Buddhism because to never suffer at all in life would lead me to have a peaceful worry free life without attachments.

February 2: Socrates defends wisdom as admitting to knowing nothing for it helps you to expand and open your mind to new ideas that were once never thought of. I can use this idea of Socrates wisdom to help me open my mind to other people's ideas of certain topics.
