On one side it is believed that Philosophy is anti-thesis of religion and God and a deflected source to peruse life, and on the other side it is believed that Philosophy is the merely source to actualize oneself. However, the questions raise! What is Philosophy? What is life? Do they both keep proportional aspect of consideration? Oh maybe..!
What is Philosophy to be always discussed in salons, public platforms, general-spots and so on.! Defining Philosophy on a rational paradigm, Philosophy is the wondering through a rational mean, it is the faculty of wondering which refers to the house of wisdom, intellectualism and rationalism. Moreover, it is the process of self-actulization, self-discovery, self-persuasion, self-reliance, self-reluctancy and self- increment, rationalizing a person to the contiguous layer, concerning to life. Adding more to that, Philosophy is the source of self-recognition in which one is provoked to persuade the conjectures and self-related Philosophies toward far-sighted experiences.
As a cumulative progress, the epistemological context of life is a such a Philosophical dilemma which is always confusing and discomfit which had been and is being discussed literary, Philosophically, psychologically and analytically through a global criterion. To be specific with the raise-up, what I experience about life with the collaboration of world Philosophical elaborated-leadings consequently exasperated me to express something regardless of concerned is to say, life is a ransacking and pilfering process which widely concern to the exploration of one’s cognitive and behavioral lead.
The itinerary of life with a jaunt through a jovial mean resisting saturnine and life’s frustrations and dismal. Philosophy juxtaposes life as forming it like a Kaleidoscope. Moreover, the Languid and lassitude of life demonstrate the lateral superiority of life as agonistic leads and libertine and the locus of every pain and pleasure seems like a limbo and loggia of lucrative similitude to the lunar, exposing magnanimous and malicious with a manifold mannerism and menial.
Furthermore, the Philosophy of life seems an exploration from the birth to the death, when a child is born, he or she seems struggling to speak, crawl, stand, walk and run, later on, he or she explores a platform to share the concerned catharsis and childhood, when he or she grows, he or she starts exploring his/her dreams and affection, moreover, he or she runs behind a gaol, then he/ she gets married and then they are exposed with their children and after their children growth, they are eager to have their children to get married and dream to play with their children and grandchildren and till death, they seem exploring something and that process of exploration is contextualized as life.
This question to the correlation of Philosophy and life, as I have discussed, Philosophy is the persuasion of wisdom and rational knowledge and life is the exploration of one’s interest, Philosophically, the persuasion and exploration of one’s life in the rational, critical and analytical approach is considered the proportional philosophical deal with life and the process of exploration and actualization in the irrational approach is not Philosophical deal.
The life is rational and sound wise when one is engaged with the perspicacious knowledge and deep insights. Philosophically and the life are irrational when one is exposed with the unphilosophic traditional and non-secularistic misleads. As many Philosophers discussed regarding the philosophy and life, as the prevalent Philosophies concern that, “It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.” “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man”, this is particularly depicting the Philosophic mean of contemplations and assumption. Additionally, Nihilism prefers that life is without objective meaning. The life is a subject matter of judgment and experiment. As Friedrich Nietzsche characterized nihilism as emptying the world, and especially human existence, of meaning, purpose, comprehensible truth, and essential value; succinctly, nihilism is the process of “the devaluing of the highest values”.
To the concern, a Philosopher describes, “We all need personal philosophy in life or we risk wandering, and responding to random stimuli and information with little or no impact on our long-term goals. A philosophy of life is an overall vision or attitude toward life and the purpose of it. Human activities are limited by time, and death” as elaboration of life depends on the mindsets and their interpretations. Such Philosophies of life are contextualized, as we should improve and avoid the psychological excuses and shouldn’t be the victim of fear and misconception. As one of the philosopher discussed, “The outer world is a reflection of the inner world”, consequently, the Philosophic interpretation of the interior passions is the stimuli and provoker of outer compassions.
In addition, the life’s goal comprise the prime provoking purposes of one’s life and the motive one gets up in the morning. Moreover, the set gaol can guideline one’s life decisions and Philosophical outcomes.
Lastly, the Philosophy is wisdom which can be seen in every field of concern and life is the exploration of interests in an intellectual or Philosophical pursuant. It depends on the mindset how do they experience their life and expose themselves whether swimming in the world of Philosophy or dipping in the world of irrationality.
