Matias Haro Posted almost 2 years ago Is Philosophy dead? Yes, I admitted that philosophy is not useful to acquire new knowledge. As you expressed, it is about putting your brain to work. But while it can do no better than science, who will consider metaphysical questions, if not philosophy? As of now, it seems that science can't have an answer to everything. And as long as those questions keep coming up, humans are in their full right to ponder and analyze those issues. In other words, they are free to philosophize. Let me remind you that in spite of opposite evidence, there are still many religious people who follow their own philosophies. I'm not saying science is deceptive or anything, but like it or not science can't and will probably never resolve humanity's fundamental "conundrums". If we had all the answers, then there would be no more religion, or any kind of philosophy for that matter.
