Introduction

  • What is Philosophy?
  • Definition: Working out the best way to think about things
  • Step back and think about the way to think about a topic: physics, medicine, …
  • A philosophical question can arise in any topic
  • Like a child asking: Why? and why again
  • Howto: Find valid arguments
    • Test, if the premises are valid
    • Test, if the conclusion is valid
    • Check if the conclusion follows from the premises
    • Keep the big picture - the vision - what inspires the argument
