Ask yourself any question. Ask a question, and then don't rush to answer it. Let this question stay with you for a while, look around, feel the ground under your feet. More and more questions may open up before you, and you just sit there and listen. And then, when you get bored in the background of these questions, you may notice some fundamental thoughtfulness that does not have a clear specific content. Let's consider it your first deep question — so deep that you don't even realize it, just feel it. Remember this feeling, learn to address it — this is your main guide to the world of deep philosophy.
Now that you are familiar with this feeling, and have realized its fundamental importance to you, look around you and see how little is needed to bring you closer to the answer to it. And here begins the search, in which you will again and again rest against the silence of what is happening, try to breathe in the air that is not around you. Put yourself on such a diet, and good things will happen: over time, you will begin to distinguish the first subtle sounds — they will come from anywhere, but the main thing in them will be that your fundamental feeling-the question-responds to them. Follow these sounds, go, and check everything with your feeling, get used to being a weigher, a scale and a standard in one person. And over time, it may suddenly turn out that all deep philosophy is about one thing, and you already know what. I just want to add, ” You.”
Any deep philosophy is about the same thing: there is an additional sphere of life — being, when life develops more intelligently, meaningfully, consciously. But this sphere opens only when there is a person (thinker) who thinks about being in a special language. This language is the language of philosophy. And here is an important point: the text of philosophy is clear (deep philosophy is clear), if you already have a desire for a conscious and meaningful life (ordered life). In other words, the philosophy in you has already “spoken”. Then any competent and deep philosophy opens up. Success.
This is not an easy question. And if we ask another question: who has already succeeded? And then, naturally, well-known names of philosophers appear before us, starting from deep philosophical antiquity: Parmenides, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, etc. And again, the question is: which of them was still able to access “deep philosophy”in the future? If the expected answer is what for all of them, then the clarifying question follows: why then did they fail to translate philosophy into science…
But with all this, we still can't help thinking that they were still content (for their time and not only…) with sufficiently deep comprehension of philosophy…
And, probably, in order to “understand deep philosophy”, it is most likely necessary to be much like them-both in an intellectual sense and in following the idea and cause of philosophy. How can we fail to take into account the point of view of Fichte (the German philosopher) when he writes that “in order to go deeper into the study of such a philosophy, such freedom of mind, such talent and such diligence are necessary, which are not found in everyone”?
The question itself is philosophical in its own way, in fact. So what is “Deep Philosophy”?.
This is the question “How are synthetic a priori propositions possible”? or ,” What is a noble husband and humanity?”
Here it is up to everyone to decide what is more interesting, more important, and more necessary for them.
What is the first thing that comes to mind when you say “philosophy”? And do you agree with this image? Are you sure that this image can actually be correlated with the meaning of the word “philosophy? And if you're not sure, are you ready to learn more? And if you already know about the “sections”, then along with the image, which “section” pops up most clearly? Ethics or epistemology? Who have you already read/tried to read from the philosophers? What figure in the history of philosophy do you like and want to learn more about?
I think you need to decide on these principles and then just learn. True, not as we are used to learning – from boring instructions barely, not wanting to absorb knowledge-and not even just to comprehend something rationally, but at the same time to feel what we learn, to constantly realize it.
Allegedly, there used to be the Milesian Ancient Greek school of philosophy, which is supposedly considered the first. This should be understood as an example of a group of people studying the structure of the world. It used to be called “philosophy”, but the people who did it were called”philosophers”. It is believed that in general a person who was educated was called a “philosopher”. Now such people are called scientists, the scientific community, and their activities are called science. And any other nonsense that later stuck to the word “philosophy” and appropriated this word is already something else.
So you have a choice. You can study formal and natural sciences. There is nothing in them that you can somehow take them and “deeply understand”, there is routine, hard work and large amounts of material being studied. Another option is that you can immediately become a ” philosopher “and master the” philosophy “as deeply as you want without any difficulty, you don't need to do anything specifically for this, you can even get a diploma if you graduate from some” philosophy department”, but there you need to perform many different rituals according to the rules of teachers.
