Philosophy being the love of wisdom and all that. Great stuff.
But for a philosopher to follow the system well, that is avoiding all those fallacies, it seems he must sacrifice wisdom to adhere to such a system. For example, there is a known liar in the village, nobody listens to anything he says anymore, but this would be committing the genetic fallacy, to base the validity of a statement on it’s origin and not on its intellectual merit, or cogency.
Is this why human wisdom is folly? Because the wisest of quotes seem to come from people who aren’t philosophers. Just simple, humble people. For a man to have to leave his wisdom at the door. Is foolish.
Another example: There has never been a society of relativists, ever. Sure, it’s always been around, but certainly not as popular as in western culture today. The wise man would conclude that a society where each thinks he is his own God, and thus falling into might is right policy (social Darwinism) is a society that will perish, unless it changes. But I’m nearly sure, I’m committing several fallacies there. But at the same time it’s wise to think so.
So what, do we just pretend, we have learned nothing from our history and act as if relativism can work, and will create a good society? That’s just an example btw, I don’t want to discuss relativism.
