Studying philosophy can be compared to the plot of the movie Matrix. Computer hacker Neo lives a perfectly ordinary life where he does not call into question its existence or its contents.

Then one day introduced Neo for Morpheus that tells Neo that the world he lives in, not as he believes, but that he live in a false reality taken over by advanced computers with artificial intelligence. It's Neos revival and choice to see beyond the present reality and questioning the way we live, which can best be characterized as a philosophical basic principle, namely that "questioning everything ". Do not eat with unproven explanations, but seek the true knowledge. Philosophy means "love of knowledge ".

You imagine so certainly a philosopher as a long-bearded type with your nose buried in a huge and incomprehensible book, but although it can easily occur, so it is far from the whole sandheden.Filosoffer are often energetic people with a large questionnaire and discussion like - always ready to challenge your prejudices or opinions, not in a malicious way, but simply because they do not accept attitudes or knowledge that can not be argued.

Would you like to study philosophy, you're bound to bump into some of life's most important questions like "What is the meaning of life? " "How should our society be organized and who should lead it? " "Is it ethical to clone humans? " "Can God's existence be proven logically " and many other specious and difficult questions.

Philosophy is an incredibly exciting field, but it requires a very specific attitude and discipline to master, as it sometimes may seem very abstract and incomprehensible, but it is only until you see the light and understand the bigger picture. So look forward to becoming acquainted with Plato and his great and epoch-making work "State " about how society should be organized. Or Machiavelli "Prince ", which deals with how the statesman should govern his state - a book that to this day read by all politicians with ambitions. You can also delve into Albert Camus ' "Sisyphus myth " about the meaning of life and the absurdity of existence.

Scientific disciples often claim adamantly that they have found løsingen or truth in a field - your job as a philosopher, so to ask critical questions about whether it is true or whether it is safe and ethical to you act in a certain way.

If you like to ask questions, discuss the implications of choice or policy, ponder the dawn of man and of society, the philosophy of the program for you.
