That...sounds like a stupid exercise.

Philosophy is not about blind abstraction, no matter how romantic that concept is.

It's not a friggin' art form.

without pulling my post directly because I'm not 100% happy with it yet but what got me going was someone mentioned comparing community college to a private ivy league (harvard) and that they're essentially the same and hold the same value and blamed harvard's value on a capitalistic society and the fact that they have a high rejection rate (wat). There was more in it but it sent me off with my current situation with applying for a few private universities... and then people talking about virginity, diamonds, and thinking that the only thing of value in life is family. Basically they came to the conclusion that you're materialistic if you place high value on anything other than water, family, virginity, etc. That we should all just be happy with what we're given....

I started off with value being relative and then ended with that sentence which is a little contradictory I guess but it was annoying me. That was also a poop way to explain what transpired on that post too.

What I mean is, the quote sounds anti-materialist, but you're giving a subjectivist critique to it.

Only mull over those responses that actually have some good, critical thought behind them. Most of the stuff said and heard in an intro to philosophy class is bullshit. Either people are afraid to voice their actual opinion or they're busy performing mental gymnastics to make their response conform to what they think the philosopher was getting at (i.e. what the professor wants to hear).

Quotes like that in isolation are meant to do exactly what it's doing: providing a vague, general rule/guideline that people will apply to whatever their particular situation is as they see it apply. Just as any song on the radio will have a different impact on you based on your feelings recently about what is going on around you (crushing on someone, in relationship, hate someone, etc.).

I think Taoism just stressed simplicity a bunch so it probably has to do with materialism in some sense. That's from the infinitely small knowledge I have of them after the ~6 years since I did this.

The mental gymnastics is spot on with 99% of what I saw in there. It was like reading a bunch of over-achieving brown nosing replies is how I would describe it. I skipped intro to phil so maybe that's where these students just came from lol.

I also put way too much stress on this.... the posts are worth 5pts (up to 30 posts) for the semester. He made it sound like you'll get full credit if you reply with more than just "i agree" or "i disagree". I need to stop overthinking this.
