In high school I decided I alchemy of nature essay going to study philosophy in college. I had several motives, some more honorable than others. But I had some more honest motives as well. I would be learning what was really what.
I’d tried to read a few philosophy books. I assumed I’d learn what in college. The summer before senior year I took some college classes. And yet my plan to study philosophy remained intact. Twenty-six years later, I still don’t understand Berkeley. Will I ever read it? Berkeley is probably not worth trying to understand.
I did end up being a philosophy major for most of college. I do at least know now why I didn’t. Formal logic has some subject matter. I don’t know if I learned anything from them. There are things I know I learned from studying philosophy. You could conceivably lose half your brain and live.
