Many of us have strong viewpoints that are influenced by philosophy, often without realizing it.
What is your take either on politics, religion, science, culture, or even the media and entertainment-that might be observed as being associated to philosophy. What are your reasons for that belief? Do you have a specific philosophy figure that might have the same views which are similar or relevant to yours? If so describe? I am trying to understand how all this intertwines with today and past issues.
