Arthur Schopenhauer taught us that the World and everything in it may be understood as the representation of pure, unmediated sexual desire. He may be right, if you think of the will as love

My favourite recent idea is that of Greta Thunberg's Environmental PHILOSOPHY Emergency.
You know the one where the old & young citizens (or Old & Young ANSWERERS here) have very
different views on such an emergency depending on whether or not YOUR Future is going to be
"messed up"... to the point of BEING curtailed so to speak.
And as an older citizen with some such experience of such things I can say that its a bit like when
back in the 80's (the 1980's !?!!) the then fledgling experts called the IPCC were touting & reporting
on the environmental emergency for the first time (recollecting back..).
They knew as now how important-an-emergency the philosophical Environment was.. though it wasn't
as stark to some -a great majority including me, a younger citizen getting on with my
own environmental emergencies" just like my generation were- as IT IS NOW.
This is partly the reason why some weeks ago I called for a full blown "Philosophy Emergency"
in response to Greta T's environmental one.
But having reflected upon it all since I have backed down & now strongly suggest that
the Environmental ideas ARE the MORE Important ones...
(Is the important one compared to a-Philosophy-Emergency). This is DESPITE the fact
that that now even among commentators here -like APOLOGISTS everywhere who falsely
believe that academic philosophy is THE BE-ALL-AND-END-ALL of real-and-realistic-
AUTHORITATIVE (ideal best) discourse- these same philosophers are beginning to see that,
after all, there could be some truth & usefulness in shaking-up today's philosophy world
(& their world) given the facts OF A WORSENING technical Environment Situation...
But I see it differently, at least in The Short term...
For I believe that any "environment" such as important as (Greta's &) our Environment, can
easily CONTAIN All the necessary rules & facts, myths & falsehoods that go with such an
environmental territory ; a "complete territory" where both Old & Young people & concerned
citizens can agree & WORK together on the problem...even IF that just means that we all
just back-up & support the Experts & agree on what is worthwhile in solving the reduction
of fossil fuels & carbon dioxide (+ methane) in this our earth's environment-atmosphere.
So DISPELLING the loose-fact (of Young versus Old- in favor of a better fact) of an Emergency
which is maybe-not-thought-of-as of VITAL Importance to the one Environment of concern...
Our Environmental concern..
And of-our-critical-philosophy-concern that this here category can reflect.Source(s): our critical philosophy source category, right here.

Descartes' realization that much of what he thought he knew, upon examination, was not "certain". It was things he'd heard, been told, speculated about, etc. I think that is shockingly true for most or all of us.

Maybe. The only thing that anybody knows for sure is some of the contents of their own mind.

One Mind Soul-Realizing immortal Ideas, ~ = later Kant's God, Man, and Nature, or Father-Mother, Son-Daughter, and Holy Spirit as panentheism. Kudos, Plotinus. "Return to the One: Plotinus's Guide to God-Realization," Brian Hines.
