How many of us want any of us to see us as we really are?
I believe it's natural to develop an image for society. We all have a desire to be closer to the top of the pyramid. If you take time to study a small tribe you will find that the social acceptance is largely based on what can be seen. And that acceptance - often times - can mean life or death. I would certainly agree that there are many negative implications in our attempts to be socially accepted. It's important to consider the implications for why we behave the way we do. The question is, "do you want to survive"?

Is Philosophy dead?
Bryan Maloney,you are a very limited individual. You should continue to repeat what you read verbatim. Otherwise the truth in someone else's thought will be truly obscure as you try to comprehend the world around you.

Is Philosophy dead?
I'm not sure that physics would be very valuable without mathematics. I think science is normally regarded as a method to obtain knowledge. I'm sure that in a specific context that statement makes sense to you.

Is Philosophy dead?
At first glance I thought it would be important to define modern science. I suppose simply quantifying publications would allow us to speak to specifics - albeit generally. What part does philosophy play in publications? I should think a large part. Quite simply put, can you have science without philosophy? Or more directly - can a proof ever really be proven? That's a bit circular. I think the real problem is consumption. Most people don't think abstractly or theoretically. It's easier to consume publications - that way we accept not knowing everything. This also helps us to "move forward". It's important to consider the role education plays. One does not learn to think philosophically, but we must learn to think in terms of modern science. my 2ยข

Is a purely logical debate possible?
We can make logical statements. A debate implies conflicting ideas. It is important to make or interpret logical statements without emotion. People form logical statements with conviction. When a contrary set of logical statements is presented we naturally fight our convictions. To accept new logic is to throw away an old set. It would be unnatural to do this without emotion. The real question is - why is it important to remove emotion? The foundation of an idea should be boundless. Otherwise we aren't being creative.

If you had a technology toy room to play with the most amazing educational technologies available today, what would be in it?
I see this all the time. Educators, educated formally, want technology in the classroom. Learning is a fundamental task. Technology should be used as a tool not a gimmic or buzz word. The biggest issue I see is educators trying to use technology they don't understand. Example; students swipe ID card to start recording so instructors can refer back to a lesson for each individual. I think computers should be more seemlessly used in classrooms by students and faculty. Integrare the LMS, a web application, note taking or reading by using computers. This way...the experience and content can be transcribed and more information can be accessible to students and faculty to enhance the learning experience.

Well...your philosophy in communication needs work. I had to scroll to find the context for your statements. It would seem to me that you are as contrary as the supposed scientific community. That alone leads to an uncertainty in our progress - something to "ponder". I think it is important to articulate thoughts as simply as possible. I notice that as my mind works to simplify a thought I learn more about the topic.

What is my obligation to society and the world?
I learned at an early age to develop a certain contentment with my accomplishments. I think you need to learn to be content with your own thoughts. I too feel the need to leave something behind. That's not the goal though. The goal is to be better. If people recognize you then that is simply an achievement. You can't start with a general purpose and fill in the blanks...that's lazy.
