What do you all think of the general state of philosophy today? Here are some quick points that I would have... 1) Too ivory tower: Seems to me that there isn't enough promotion of philosophy as a way of life for the common person. Too many over-intellectualized words and phrases. 2) Not enough applied philosophy: Too much confusion between "the history of philosophy" and the "doing" of philosophy. Too much reliance on out of date concepts from the masters, without updating concepts in the light of new scientific knowledge. But I'd love to hear other opinions on this.
