Philosophy – A fashion ?

Filed under: Blog — Ranganathan @ 23:02

Of late, I find many of my friends have added ‘philosophy’ to the top their interests list.
Wow, Interesting Indeed!
Most of them aren’t in a position to explain what does philosophy mean. That’s ok, I have wikipedia.
Basically, what created this interest in them suddenly?
Age? No, most of them are less than 25yrs old, & it can’t be the reason!
Studies / work / research ? No, all of them are in the software industry, & it has no room for philosophy to inspire anyone.

Aaah! I got it. I got what could be the possible reason(s)!
One, they have read a book by ‘AynRand’. They could have read it out of curiosity, or some very-close person forced them to read it, or out of sheer curiosity raised by a buddy reading it. In fact, for many, AynRand was the first real book they read in life. That’s the point precisely. For sure, philosophy would have been kicked out of their list by adventure, detective, or science-fiction had it been a book from those respective categories.

Anyways, whenever I hear the word, it resonates just like iPod, or A320.
