Why do we need philosophy?

Well,I think,philosophy comes to fill up the blanks which our knowledge can't give correct details.Even though philosophy looks like correct knowledge,it is false knowledge until we can say it with our experience.So,do we need philosophy as a substitute?Please share your ideas!

Has the same with you. I think we don’t need philosophy. That not useful for everyone. The first I do is to earning more money to built our world more and more beautiful , if you always research philosophy. You will not take many time for earning money or doing other useful things. Philosophy can’t make value to us. And think a lot will let our head more slow. And more headaehe with it. so I don’t agree take many time to research philosophy .

You are a materialistic man and we have to do our duties in this world first.That is right.But we can't ignore some questions arising in our mind and philosophy comes out to soothe us for the time being.It seems you are a busy man not having time to think other than your worldly matters.Keep it up.Cheers!

Hi srganesh,Philosophy means "love of wisdom." Philosophy is based on rational argument and appeal to facts.philosophy is a comprehensive system of ideas about human nature and the nature of the reality we live in.therefore we cannot run away from it at any time of our life.It is said that "Everyone has a philosophy, even if one cannot express it in words". We feel the need to believe in something and search for understanding, and all of us at sometime or the other depend on some philosophical conclusion or the other...

What an interesting topic. As most of us know, there are different branches of knowledge in the world. What philosophy does is gather knowledge from all over the world and summarize them. In this way, people can easily get the overall picture so that they become wiser.

Philosophy is the study of the mind. Philosophers differ in their thoughts but ultimately all the of them aim at perfection. Philosophy is not a substitute but an integral part of our life to understand the existence of the Absolute and Supreme Almighty. All is one is the crux of any philosophy for that matter. We are likened to the water contained in the spoon and the almighty is the water contained in the ocean and we are one with him!
