Part 1 The Love of Wisdom Know Thyself --Socrates The Joy of Philosophy is an exploration of the workings of philosophy It encourages us all to regard philosophy in a different light as a passion for knowledge and wisdom and not as some hedonistic tool of the egotist He teaches us to see philosophy as we see life full of passion and love thick with a fullness of hope and vigor This is a man who says life is rich and he means it Solomon begins this book with a rant Philosophy is too often thin What he means by this is that philosophy like life should be rich and fulfilling It should have substance drive and well passion He says in a way dont think about where youve been or where youre going focus instead on where you are right now Think how to make the best of the present and do not worry about tomorrow Make your life meaningful full of the passion of living Philosophy is a search for truth People often push away what they dont agree with as in politics religion and even philosophy But I think and Solomon would agree that human beings are defined buy our opposites So in order for us to know what we believe we must also know what we dont believe In that sense philosophy is intrinsic to humanity It wont ever show us what we are but it shows us what we arent To know your friends you must also know your enemies Part 2 Passion Virtue and Guns Its the question that drives us Neo --Trinity
