Philosophy is the competition of ideas, thoughts, opinions, and perspectives all battling against each other for mental supremacy.

That's exactly what it is.

This is why philosophy's early roots were either in a crowded symposium or agora.

Places full of men competing their ideas against each other.

The goal is always mental or ideological supremacy.

Simple.   Philosophy is a love of wisdom.  It is a craving to know, a passion, a state of mind, rather than a particular kind of knowledge, a passionate search for wisdom, not the possession of it.  Are not women capable of this. I fail to see how this could be exclusively a male attribute, unless women lack both cognitive and emotional dimensions of the mind.

Which they do not.

You obviously are too lazy to read the thread, all emotion no reason.

Laziness inhibits passion.

Laziness is 'putting off' action, generally typified by a "I don't care" attitude. Lacking motivation is essentially connected to a lack of passion, which is something that inspires us, however, when we are always told what to do, we begin to lose passion for whatever we are doing, which leads to a general lack of motivation because the spark has been put out by all the negativity around us. LOL.

Philosophizing is not like a competition, which makes sense only if we are winning. It is a worthwhile activity even if you are not wining (or solving the problems for that matter). It is desirable for itself not because of some prize that should result from it but because of the potential to autonomously shape and guide our lives.

Typical female,

"Philosophy is not about winning."

Yes, it is. That's another reason why males are philosophers, never females. Females lack the competitive edge, and the risk taking which are both required by philosophy.

Now read the thread before you respond again.

Competition of ideas don't exist in philosophy?

That's cute coming from a woman.

Expanding on Joker's contribution, competition of ideas, what then is religion by comparison?

Religion is about destroy competition. Religion is about monopoly of ideas, regulation of ideas. Religion is about censorship and constricting ideas. Religion is about stamping out competition. All must agree with the religion.

Now we can all see why religion, not philosophy, is more aligned with the female psychology. Did you all just catch that???

All emotion, no reason, promotes "cooperation not competition". Do you see, now, why females are attracted to the order and security of religion, while never participating nor truly understanding philosophy?

Females, like all emotion no reason, want to end competition, instead of promoting it.

Females also fail to realize, due to a lack of self consciousness, that females are the main target of male competition, the prize if you will.

Interesting prognosis you have there.  Of course statistically speaking women are ten times more likely to be religious than men are.

Still, if we are going to be talking about religion you might as well throw in government also since it is a different kind of religion unto itself altogether.

Politics is very feminine we might say also which is an extension of government.

When you look at the modern political platform or voting base statistically right there also you see that a majority of participation is done by women.

Real men  in my mind understand that all of government and politics like religion is a bunch of garbage or bullshit.

Real men don't have time for such foolishness.

The philosophic mind is open and non-judgmental and has the recognition that it could be wrong in any situation.  

One must remain always, aware of this.

The philosophical mind is most judgmental and discriminating of the world.

Because to discriminate is to recognize patterns, and order, in the universe. For example, the sun rises and sets each day, why? How? The philosophical mind, inquisitive and curious, eventually developed a science to learn, understand, and predict these cycles. Science is the son of Philosophy.

Religion came much later.

I am more than willing to concede the male is the superior, but surely you can cut women some slack and acknowledge there are some who have a passion "to know" as well as have a passion "to nurture".

One of my last sexual flings, I fucked this thin, gorgeous, petite girl who was cheating on her boyfriend. We were on the ground and I was on top of her. I pinned her arms to the carpet and she was struggling meekly. I leaned my face close to hers until our mouths were almost together. She turned her head a little bit. Since she did that, I got off the ground and let her up.

Then we sat together on my couch, watching a movie. She was staring at me. So I looked at her in her eyes, and she closed in on me. She kissed me.

Isn't this your "philosophy", all emotion, no reason? Let me speak in a language you understand.

Your submission, is it not your philosophy?

Women make excellent foot stools when their primary utility isn't being used or occupied.

Of course, women evolved a capacity to 'know' to some extent. Culture could not survive essential male pursuits such as wars, long term hunting, travelling etc if this was not the case, and civilization would never come to fruition if (noble) women were unable to preserve ideals, modes of thinking.

But if you concede that the male is the more dynamic, to a large degree, then you should not feel alienated by the generalisation, right?



Then again...

As proved now, females are about connectivity, unification, "love". Females find their power by bringing people together. Hence, religion is more inclined to the female specie.

Philosophy? Discrimination. Disunity. Doubt. Rejection. Rebellion. Competition of ideas. Supremacy. Distance. Disagreement. Fighting.

Now are we beginning to understand why no female philosophers???


It seems to go against the very nature of females.

AEon,

You big girl's blouse. You respond in an overly emotional manner, you chest beat about your sexual conquests, (too much information) and not a lot of philosophical content to challenge. A hint. Put your dick away, little boy and explain why "winning" is more important as opposed to truth in philosophy.

I thought I was speaking your language, baby? What have I got to prove, to or against you? I didn't realize that you were my competition?

When it comes to pretty pussies, I just want to get my fuck on. Are you something "more than" sex? What is the female essence and nature, except, submission before male authority?

Can a female ever become an authority, how and why, explain the circumstances?


No.....no. I think I'll keep trying to whisper my perversions into your ear, until you blush and get hot with embarrassment and lust..........???
