"Primitive man depended on fire to keep him warm, to keep the dark away. For the dark invited predators. Even now with our genetics, our inventions, and our implants, we still seek the comfort of light."
--Dr. Theodore Krauss
Teaching philosophy in this age of science is nearly impossible. Nobody wants to know what Socrates thought about what is in a man's heart or mind. In this time of metal and flesh, most are more concerned about how to spend their next chit, than if the person beside them can offer them more comfort than the object they are about to purchase. We have androids for that now. Human contact is unnecessary.
Tradition is what keeps these studies of humanities on the list of requirements. If it were not for that, philosophy, psychology, and any of the humanities would be easily forgotten by the common man in this world of twisted Corporate.
To ignore the needs of humanity would be an incredible mistake; one that the Corporates do not make. They continue to study the humanities, knowing that without them, they could not control the masses. To believe that these studies have no worth is laughable. If a person does not arm himself with knowledge, he will only continue to be used.
