Philosophy can not be boring, because from the Greek language it translates as “love of wisdom”. This is a very accurate, lively and interesting science. You just need to understand it. Like math, physics, and chemistry…
Having understood and assimilated philosophy, you can explain any phenomenon of the world. For example, you can sort out the essence of the state's domestic and foreign policy on the shelves.
By the way, I had to answer this question during my philosophy exam at the Higher School of Economics. And there were only three questions.
“There are many philosophers, but there are not enough wise ones,” Colonel Cheban Valery Vsevolodovich, a philosophy teacher, told me at the time:
It depends only on teaching. Everyone has their own mandatory program, their own list of acceptable philosophers. It is understandable, all schools and currents for a couple of years of non-core training can not pass. Especially when going deeper. But at the expense of boredom: a friend of mine, in a well-known technical university, a philosophy teacher claimed, for example, that he could walk through walls. And he refused to show it, under the pretext of the wrong atmosphere. Such cases once again confirm my words – here how lucky with the style and program.
It is “it seems boring and uninteresting”.
In educational institutions, this is an event driven into the framework.
And true philosophy (by definition) requires fairly close and often informal communication.
I myself was bored by this, and on the exam I began to answer my personal opinion to the question in the ticket instead of the textbook. The teacher was so interested in this that we even discussed the questions of his dissertation. It turned out that he touched on this topic and his approach was closer to my views than “dictated by the textbook”.
