"…What was argued on the steps of Athens or any other timeline with any particular famous philosophy. But I'm trying to understand this person and their view and how we might discover and explore together. And it was like it was a foreign concept and this wasn't the only time I run up against that. So then I was like, well, how do I communicate what I'm endeavoring to do here?…"

"…As the advent of social media, what's happened is more people want to speak and less people want to hear or actively listen. When you listen less actively, then a lot of it is based on small queues and it could absolutely be opposite to what you're trying to say if they had listened actively to the entire content. It happened to me as well very recently, where one person really appreciated as well but made a counterpoint which is totally away from the content.…"

"…I definitely have been a part of several different types of discourse related to trying to find a space for philosophical analysis of just different things, different topics, different challenges, different experiences and so on. And one of the things that I've sort of bumped up to and I guess this is sort of my contribution to this post in relationship to the philosophical analysis is the evidence that it is very challenging for emotional displacement to take place, right?…"

And they start talking you talk about hydrogen, and this comes together, and they start talking to science of it, and you're kind of going back and forth. You may have felt that philosophy analysis was difficult to get to. I will say philosophical analysis was happening. It was just different philosophical approaches.…"

And so if we're talking about just science and keeping it in that scientific realm, to me, the image that I use to describe the sort of idea is the microscope, when you zoom in so closely on the details that you lose the concept of the overall image of what it is.…"

And it's not until the emotional backlash comes and I'm like, oops, I stepped in it because I don't necessarily realize or recognize what didn't happen, that displacement didn't happen.…"

So, no, philosophy is not dead. It's just that sometimes you come up against warrants and philosophy is alive and kicking. Because anytime you try to understand anything or how something works or how belief came to being, you're using philosophy.…"

Chand so those things are probably getting more in the way than actually having these sorts of conversations. I think that philosophy, or even the method is dead.

Trust me, I'm an author, so I do have some idea of what I'm talking about. So you have the tendency to philosophize perhaps because you're self contained and self sufficient.…"

So there are so many creators of this sort. The only thing I have seen is philosophy has changed medium. Philosophers are not writing gigantic papers anymore because nobody is reading them, right? Maybe your peers are. But the common public is not reading philosophy papers.…"

But if you're more academic in the nature of here, learn these words, learn the cave theory from Plato, etc. And you're just going to have to write out what it is.
