Why should I trust philosophers when they failed to have children, the most basic aim of life?

>> No.14518990

>>14518982
Then, just follow philosophers who had children? Is not that difficult

>> No.14519028

>>14518982
It's not an aim of life to have children.

>> No.14519043

Well, anon. Let's break down your thesis. Firstly, it is not true that philosophers fail to have children. Many do. And further, many of them that did have been influenced by those that did not. This, in a sense substantiates the words of these childless philosophers by your standard, as now their ideas flow from the child having philosopher, validating them. Secondly, in what way have you proven to me that "having children is the most basic aim of life?" You have not defined your terms here. I can only guess at what you mean, and any further expounding on why I do not think this is the case is simply lost. It was Voltaire himself who said "If you wish to debate me, you must first define your terms" Finally, that a philosopher does not have children, yet writes influential books would appear to be a higher form of self-proliferation, and species-proliferation. Having your own children affects a small handful of people, yet as a philosopher you might influence the whole world!

Good day sir.
