I know, he was my history teacher's fav philosopher.

I never liked philosophers and their obsession with life and God.

It's all biological.

Philosophy indeed is interesting, but I don't really see an application in the real world like science.

Philosophy is very important, as long as it is objective. Most philosophy is just mental gymnastics, but the important (applicable) branches are Objectivism and Praxeology. From these we can find "universally preferable behavior", which is a rational foundation for secular ethics.


So whether you're an Atheist, or Muslim, or Christian, there are universally-applicable ethics you must follow or risk being illogical. But for most people, being illogical isn't a problem at all - in fact, it's a plus!
