4. Everyone needs philosophy. 5. Philosophy is needed because man is always asking questions that need to be answered, and philosophy holds those answers. The purposes of philosophy are to study four specific parts of man. Philosophy, studies fundamental nature of existence, studies existence as such with metaphysics, studies mans means of cognition or theory of knowledge with epistemology, and lastly, studies the morality of man with ethics. 6. (a) What you can choose with respect to philosophy is whether you define your philosophy as a conscious, rational or disciplined process. This process can be logical deliberation, subconscious or any other type of way you may process something in your mind. (b) One could not cot choose to have no philosophy because Rand explains that “you have no choice about the necessity to integrate your observation, you experience, your knowledge into ideas.” (Page 6).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
