Should people be goaded into learning better philosophy ?
Embarrassed say by calling a "Philosophy Emergency" similar
to the Environment Emergency that undoubtedly exists.
How should known bad subjective philosophy commentators here be goaded into learning philosophy of
a better kind ?
Am extremely grateful for your answers, short or not so short.

Mr Interesting's answer
and also james' answer, where his
short one I cannot expect hardly
any sensible reader to agree, if only
because I have myself urged an urged
here another better philosophy method
that my teachers too taught (if sometimes
NOT directly ; see here my open User
past activity with All its mistakes as
well. An objective rational method as
better described And used by karl
Popper, Emeritus Philosopher &
better Historian of Ideas, if I didn't
know he would mind such..

You are. For as you pass threw life your philosophy will change many times. For only those who can adapt & change shall prosper in life. There philosophy will change as well for success will drive it to be. Or they will fail. So read your books & learn from them. But once on the street forget the words they used. & do what is deemed to succeed. Were often not a word is needed but only the end result is counted.

I think manipulating them into learning better philosophy would be ideally hitting 2 birds with the one stone.
People just need to understand that being the hope they wish to see in this world is if great great value

Wouldn't that be nice but Fat Chance. For a grown man you seem incredibly naive about human nature Peter M. People cannot be goaded into doing anything of the sort- particularly something they aren't emotionally or financially invested in. In the case of environmental philosophy the entire house of education probably has to fall down before your pet little corner of it can be rebuilt. I'M not trying to put you down but your bayings on a backwater 4th rate website that has become an industry joke aren't likely to change anyone's mindset. Pissing into the wind is the metaphor that comes to mind.

We do not need a new clergy. Nor another good book. Nor preachers. People are not sheep. People should be treated not as you think they are but how they should be in the ideal. Only then may they believe they can be more.
Please do not teach better philosophy like some doctrine to be imposed. I have this picture of you as some old grammar teacher bemoaning newfangled slang of the current generation.
All I see is a million different variables to even define better without coming from a place of dogma. It is the mind which selects those variables, not some external reference. People learn not better philosophy but better judgment. Philosophy is derivative of the mind which selects it. A mind must manage the information it receives and produce something.

I don't know why?? Isn't philosophy more of an interest, as opposed to being necessary to live ones life??

People should be offered the opportunity to learn better philosophy.
Promote a few interesting facts about philosophy,
create a better way to indulge in philosophy ... and they will come.
