I have a question related to my relationship and, I guess, life in general. My girlfriend and I share a lot of values, but there are things that we do not agree on. My girlfriend is religious and soon to be a government worker. I am not religious, but I love her religiosity and her tendency not to inflict that on others. We agree about the ideas of peaceful parenting about which we have talked a lot.
The thing that I don't like is the fact that her dream job includes her to be government worker.
Not sure how to approach the situation.
You use a precise definition of philosophy that may exclude some popular historical figures generally considered philosophers. For example Hegelian dialectic is not a conventional form of logical argumentation yet Hegelianism is popularly considered philosophy. Friedrich Nietzsche uses a lot of mythological symbolism in his writing, which really isn't an argument. Do you accept their work as philosophy? Do you accept the concept of schools of philosophy? What is the boundary between philosophy and other forms of thinking and intellectual investigation? Do you consider forms of thinking or intellectual investigation other than philosophy, as valid or valuable?

Philosopher Stefan Molyneux answers questions in an electrifying live stream, such as:
Jerome Frank says, In Law and the Modern mind, formal logic is flawed and therefore, absolutism is false. He cites some cogent examples from F.C.S. Schiller and some Piaget, saying when a child discovers his father is not omniscient, he shifts to other ideas as a surrogate, to maintain the absolutism he dreams to be true.
He also mentions word magic and that words become bigger than the concept, making words elastic enough to encompass everything to their particular bias.
Any thoughts or rants on any of the above?
I’ve talked to my husband about peaceful parenting and that you have never punished your daughter. We are hoping to start a family in the next year.
He thinks it’s possible raising boys and girls is different, that he was much more difficult to raise than his sisters, and was constantly in a power struggle with his father. He thinks maybe boys do require more discipline in order to become disciplined ...
Brings questions, criticisms, kudos and rotten fruit!
Well, don't we all need it?

The kind of show that can TRULY change your life...
Yesterday evening I spent preparing a plan to move to another country to find a job.
Before going to sleep I opened an e-mail that a girl from a dating site wrote. I wasn't attracted to her, but thought maybe she has other quality's, so why not give her a chance. I replied back to her saying that we can have a conversation other the phone. She then replied back saying she'd love to, but called me another man's name.
Moments later I went to bed and entered a roller coaster dream.
A girl, who is more my type, body and face wise, but with short dark hair (I like long hair, girl who wrote to me in reality had long dark hair) is trying to date me. She says I didn't write back to her. I take out my phone and say “lets take a look now” (as I did write back). She backs down. I'd describe her as being on the crazy side.
I also keep trying to remember her name. I keep looking on my phone to find it, but I cant.
All this is also happening against the backdrop that I have a really long three ...
This one will TRULY blow your mind and soul...
