  1. The question” what's the point of anything ” is a philosophical one. So when you ask this question, you are philosophizing [if you do it unprofessionally, you are not a philosopher, but nevertheless]. So your question can be restated as: “What's the point of asking, what's the point?”. No problem, don't philosophize-and you won't care about this question.

  2. Just like living on the assumption that you're going to die. Draw, thinking that you can't draw something that will impress everyone. The point of philosophy is to be philosophical, not to be true. That you can't help but do it, just as you can't help but breathe or think or be.

  3. The philosopher thinks nothing of the sort.

    For example, it makes sense for you to study philosophy in order to understand what theories of truth exist, how correspondence theory differs from coherent theory, how coherent theory differs from deflationary theory, and so on – that is, to find out what people who use the word “truth” in any context other than kitchen chatter really think.

  4. “does the philosopher believe that truth does not exist, or does everyone have their own truth?” – that's right-he BELIEVES!, and does not pass off his maxim as the TRUTH! and it is far from true that anyone who thinks so is necessarily a philosopher.

    Abstract truth doesn't really exist, but there are plenty of particulars. Snow is common to everyone and the existence of snow in a snowfall is an immutable truth for everyone, such examples are innumerable.

    P.S. the discussed phrase for the word “truth” needs to apply the genitive case and this truth is for everyone … well, except for you, that is, you are right, First you should do not philosophy, but grammar.

  5. First you need to understand who a philosopher is. Further clarify the concept of truth. And then look for the meaning of doing philosophy. Philosophy is the construction of a coordinate system for science. Of course, it has to do with the Truth, but there it is more important to get a creative result in the form of material goods. And the Truth is far from material.

  6. PHILOSOPHY believes that there is one TRUTH for all.

    TRUTH is one of the most important concepts of science and philosophy.

    Truth in the primitive everyday sense is called by a much more modest word TRUTH, which everyone has their own-this is any opinion of any amateur.

  7. “Philosophy is the pursuit of truth, and the best gift of the gods to people, because nothing is better than to know the truth, there is neither for man nor for the gods”-so wrote Plato.The difficulty, in fact,is that the desire to make sense of life is a self-expression of the “I”that is always unique. Therefore, it is interesting to find this elusive thread-the basis of the fabric of Being, a thought that illuminates ignorance with its light,penetrates into all dark corners , a common denominator that you take for a single, universal truth.The only question is, what will it look like?However, in the words of the same Plato : “The speeches of how many people I have not heard,

    no one has reached the point of knowing that wisdom, σοφον [philosophy]

    there is something separate from everything.” That is, philosophy has its own specific place, independent of people's attempts to grasp the truth from different angles.

    Why is the process of this “grabbing “important,even the attempts to do it themselves? Since we're talking about your preference for Socratic philosophy ,his disciple Plato is just saying that the difference between a philosopher and a philosopher is very important.

    the difference between being awake and not being philosophical

    eating (ππαρ) and sleeping (оарar). The non-philosopher does not even seem to live, but is in a state of mental suspended animation, simply sleeps, and “only eats

    in “there is a waking presence”, the very definition of life as such.

  8. From a person who believes that the truth does not exist and everyone has their own.

    The answer is simple, because I can't do it any other way. I do not know how one could live without thinking about things. Philosophy is a way to find the answer to any question, this is how I solve problems, through deep thinking, which for me is considered philosophy. Moreover, the problems are not only of the nature: “How do I pass my driver's license?” or ” So that I can eat today?”, but problems like what to do next in life?, which in my case leads to the question of the meaning of life, or the problem of what political system is best?, or how can I make mistakes as little as possible? and so on.

    If we take a summary of the reason, it is as follows: The impossibility of knowledge does not negate the need for knowledge. That is, if I want to think about something, then the impossibility of reliable knowledge will not stop me, I still want knowledge, so I will try to get the highest quality knowledge, as if it were possible.

  9. True: if we assume that there is no single truth, then philosophy becomes impossible. Then someone can claim this, calling himself a philosopher, only out of thoughtlessness.

    On the other hand, we do not know in advance exactly how a particular thinker reasoned and what significance he attaches to the concept of “meaning“in general. Perhaps, for himself, he somehow builds motivation in such a way that the meaning is not necessarily connected with the truth.

  10. What should this philosopher do? If he (this philosopher) believes that truth does not exist, then what did he do before in philosophy? Looking for this answer? Then he has found it and can try to check it out, for example, bring his mistress home and then argue with his wife about the truth… If he has come to the conclusion that everyone has their own truth, then he can try to find his own truth, and then compare it with other truths and be proud that his truth is better, for example, that his truth is to have both a wife and a mistress.) Or try to get drunk and write a verse about the truth.

    1. To know the truth for each person means to choose a part of their own knowledge, which they consider irrefutable.

    The truth is periodically developed and clarified only by the advanced part of humanity.

    Truth is the most stable part of the available knowledge of any people, which is the basis of their beliefs.

    People who have approximately the same understanding of the truth understand each other more easily and are able to unite with each other.

    Fanatics and conservatives consider the truths that are the basis of their beliefs unchangeable, eternal and absolute.

    The truth is subjective for each person.

    There is a particular truth of one person; a collective truth; a general truth of a nation; a universal truth that reflects the structure of reality in mathematical formulas and natural relationships of general concepts.

    1. On a large scale, countries are governed not by people, but by worldviews.
      We live before the era of building highly developed societies due to the lack of development of a scientific worldview.

    Hence all the problems of the primitive structure of modern societies.
    We live in a time when people who determine the life of nations, their critics and ordinary people, do not know the structure/meaning/essence of human language, which consists of two qualitatively different sequences of general concepts that clearly correspond to two levels of natural development of man and society.

    This structure is not studied by linguistics, but philosophy has been trying to study it for a long time and unsuccessfully, in the form of interrelations of categories.

    All the invented devices of modern societies, economic, political, and even physical and mathematical theories correspond to the prevailing very approximate knowledge of the structure of human language.

  11. What is it? Does the philosopher believe that there is no truth? It is there! Only it's not for us. And why should a philosopher give prescriptions, in search of truth, or three rubles? Wittgenstein – “Philosophy ends where it gives an answer.” The business of philosophy is to indicate the prospects for the development of thought. And it is up to theoretical physicists and mathematicians to give answers. Here they will explain everything to you.

  12. Every philosopher counts on the fact that it is his theory that is correct. They all want recognition. And Makedonsky generally said that it was time to say goodbye to them, before their dreams and thoughts destroyed us.

    It still stretches back to ancient times!
