Bungie's "play the way you want but actually it's play the way we want you to play" philosophy since Shadowkeep's release has been one of their biggest misfires that has ultimately killed any enjoyment of the game.

Very sad to see the state the game is in right now with all the upcoming nerfs, artifact enabled Trials and the new Director's Cut being more empty, meaningless promises for a game with so much potential, among all the other issues that have plagued the game since Shadowkeep launched, all my excitement for Season of the Worthy is about as lively as Cayde. Sure, I'll still play the game at least casually, because the gameplay is good enough that I don't totally feel like I'm suffering while playing, but I could just move on to other, better games that actually are rewarding me for my time playing them (shoutout to Monster Hunter World).

Edit: I'm fully ready to eat my words if this next season turns out to be something and then the love/hate cycle shall repeat once more, but for now, expectations have been set.

Forbes hit the nail on the head: "Destiny 2's you had to be there philosophy is turning off players."

https://www.forbes.com/sites/paultassi/2020/01/22/destiny-2s-you-had-to-be-there-philosophy-is-turning-off-players/

More and more people are turning away from a game with an "evolving" story that doesn't go anywhere. FOMO appears to be Bungies way of attempting to keep players playing, while they make as minimal content as possible. It's the reason people did Corridors of Time, even though it had the most lackluster reward. Going back to the old DLC style of content (even with the stale metas) would be better than getting an unrewarding reskined "horde" mode every few months.

D&D's philosophy on tabletop games

I don't think D&D is bad. I have been running D&D 5th Edition nearly every week for over two years, not counting all the games (D&D and otherwise) that I participate in. Suffice it to say, I have a lot of experience with the game, and if I thought it was total garbage I wouldn't bother with it.

That being said, my group is now level 11 and at this point are basically the Fantasy Justice League. As frustrating as the inherent power fantasy of D&D is to me as a GM, I'm more interested in providing a compelling narrative and investing my players in the consequences of their actions, so i'm willing to run with it. My players can stomp all over every encounter I throw at them, but not every problem can be solved with a sword, so I just lean into that.

Up until this point I have accepted that D&D probably wasn't the best tool for the specific campaign I am running, but that since we started in this system, we should end with it and I should just make it work. But last

Education philosophy teacher spreading terrible teaching advice. How is this 2020?

Yesterday I had a class on teaching which left me such bad taste in my mouth, and I literally have no women to talk this over with.

Im the only woman in this class, and thing had been fine so far until yesterday. The prof was giving us general advice about dealing with unruly students, specifically undergrads, which we’ll be dealing with more than high schoolers. At one point he turns to me and asks: β€œWhat would you say if a student called you sexy during your lecture?”

(At this point, I was hopeful he was trying to give me genuine advice because this is a real issue when you’re a woman physicist dealing with the first wave of undergrads, before they drop out)

β€œI’d say that’s highly inappropriate and that there’s a time and a place for everything, and that he’s disrupting my -β€œ

CMV: The β€œcustomer is always right” is a toxic business philosophy that breeds selfishness and entitlement

Having recently worked a temp job as a cashier, I came to best witness to the classic β€œthe customer is always right” business ideology in action. In short, we seemingly bend over backwards (with a smile on our faces no less) to accommodate whatever the customer needs. We force cashiers to endure the mental fatigue of checking out 100+ people in a row during rush so the customer has to wait as little as possible.

We cave on most requests with even the slightest pushback. For instance, not having your discount card physically or any real proof (β€œI forgot it”). It’s store policy to deny the discount without proof of having the membership, yet all they have to do is insist and management will make an exception.

These are only a couple of examples. To me, there is little positive outcomes associated with this mindset that the customer isn’t wrong. I get wanting to provide fast and friendly service, but for the sake of both parties that can’t always be fully accommodated. And the weirdest

Your choice of video game character can be a very valid "sign". I read this interesting formula in a philosophy book, that I really wanted to share ~

One of the most prominent philosophers in the world, Slavoj Ε½iΕΎek, says it very well. When for example the Egg is doing something out of authentic decision, even if it appears fake – a merely staged identity outside it's own apparently "true" being, (like assuming the identity of a woman even though they're appearing to be male) this can in fact be the way the real identity can have it's own freedom. That is, of course, until transition.

>let us imagine a rather common case of a shy and inhibited man who, in cyberspace, participates in a virtual community in which he adopts the screen persona of a [...] woman; his stance, of course, is that of 'I know very well I am really just a shy, modest guy, so why shouldn't I briefly indulge in posing as a ... woman, doing things I could never do in real life?' - however, are things really so simple and straightforward?

[Excerpt: Titandeath] A Dark Mechanicum Techpriest explains their philosophy.

Context: Harrtek is a princeps of the traitor Legio Vulpa. The bond between him and his Warlord's machine spirit has begun deteriorating, causing issues on the battlefield and off it. A techpriest, called Protos, comes to his chamber with an offer of power and victory. However, what I find more interesting is his short speech on the difference between the "New Mechanicum" and the recently created "Adeptus Mechanicus".

> β€˜Do you know why we wear black?’ asked the priest. > > β€˜I genuinely do not care,’ said HarrΒ­tek. β€˜Get out.’ > > β€˜We wear black to forget Mars,’ said the priest, making no move towards the door. β€˜Your assessment is correct. The old Mechanicum are obsessed with meaningless ritual. They are cowards. They are too scared to uncover the truth. Black is the colour of the void. It is the colour of eternity.

[Spoiler Maybe?] Philosophy: Star Trek is always a reflection of our time; the point of this series is one of redemption.

I really love Star Trek Picard. I have seen all the criticism about "this not feeling like Star Trek" and have been giving it a lot of thought, and I think I understand what is going on and why folks are not understanding what they are seeing.

I have been a fan for a long time... since back in the day when TOS, and maybe a few beta cannon books/comics/RPGs were all the source material that we had. When TOS came out it was a reflection of its time... the male characters were generally overly bombastic, and the women were often dressed as scantily as they could get away with at the time. But when you look deeper you see that a spirit of "American exceptionalism" permeated many of the episodes, and so did a need and desire to show folks of many races working together towards the same common goals in a future where any one of any race, religion, or sex would be working right along-side someone else equally different as officers on the bridge of a starship.

CMV philosophy should be a mandatory subject in public schools, taught from elementary to highschool and is equally if not more important than the other liberal arts disciplines (English, history, etc)

Philosophy doesn't teach what to think, merely how to think better. How to analyze arguments and see their merits and flaws. It can also give everyone a baseline understanding of concepts so people with differing views can have meaningful conversations. For example, in America, President Obama has been labeled some form of socialist/Marxist throughout his presidency by his political opponents. I understand this is merely a scare tactic used to rile up the conservative base. However this tactic would have been impossible if everyone had been required to have a rudimentary understanding of Karl Marx's theories. Love him or hate him Obama was certainly no hero of the proletariat. If a goal of public education is to produce citizens capable of critical thinking, there is no better discipline to master.

Philosophy translates to other fields, more so than most of not all other academic disciplines. This can allow students to find some aspect of philosophy to engage in that they wi

Hi Reddit! My name is Anakin Peace. I'm a freshman philosophy student at University of California, Santa Cruz.

I grew up in poverty and suffering bouts of homelessness. When I was 16 I went out on my own and made enough money buying and selling cars to attend college. I'd always wanted to build a plane, so here at UCSC I started Flight Club, a school club comprised of hardworking student engineers and designers determined to complete this project.

EDIT: Not only talking about drug dealers and heavy duty criminals. I'm talking about office workers, students, athletes, etc. I'm talking about the people who cheat.

EDIT: Crap. Just saw the typo in my post title.

Philosophy of Drugs

I was wondering if there were any writers who considered the philosophical merits of using mind altering drugs. I know that many famous contemporary philosophers experimented with psychedelics, Sartre with mescaline for example. As well as many of them with substance abuse problems, particularly alcohol or pain medication. Is it problematic to the discipline to seek perception changing substances?

Magic Seeking Magic -- The Philosophy and Theory of Abjuration

Intro

> "Philosophy? How's this for philosophy--don't get f#@%ing hit, and maybe that way you'll live long enough to cast another f%&#ing spell before getting your head smashed in by a f&$!#ing orc!"

> -Abjurist Davitt Thunderbrand, Adjunct Professor of Abjuration at the Luvendal Battleschool. Note: the rest of the interview went about as well as you'd expect. I recommend finding another pull quote before we run this story.

Abjuration is the jack-of-all-trades, pulling together disparate spells together from all the different schools in the name of protection. Instead of some philosophical underpinning, it's a very practical look at common patterns of defensive spells. So let's get started.

Got a PhD in philosophy, lecturing in it, and now I feel guilty. Help!

It's not imposter syndrome but there is so much philosophy I haven't had the time to study. I haven't read Leibniz or Spinoza, barely know Locke, know nothing about scholasticism or formal logic or Seneca, etc etc. There are so many gaps. I know my own speciality (ethics) well enough to teach and publish, but am thin outside it.

Who - in your opinion- are the essentials every professional philosopher should know?

Energy and Motion -- The Philosophy and Theory of Evocation

Intro

> "Some time ago, I ran into a traveler from a distant land, wearing nothing but simple robes and a shaved head. He asked for shelter along the road, and I gave it to him, then he sat down and built a cookfire with a wave of his hand. He followed an ancient tradition, he said, known as the Way of the Four Elements, and described to me the philosophy of his path. Motion, balance, and a oneness with nature itself. We were attacked not long after by a tribe of goblins, during which he proved to be an objectively useless combatant. Still, he had some fascinating things to say about fire and water."

> Evoker Melidea de Ahvain of the Meirnes Institute for the Gifted.

This week, we explore the classic wizard archetype--the channeler, the Elementalist, the wielder of raw magical power in all its glory: the Evoker. Let's see what we can do to give this seemingly bog-standard subclass a little more flair.

Starfleet Starship Design Philosophy: Unrealistic?

Let me preface this that I really enjoy the various Star Trek shows' takes on different Starfleet ship designs. Whether it's the iconic Enterprises to the background one-offs, they have really let their imagination flow (within the limitations of what we consider to be the Starfleet design mold).

However, I wonder if this is realistic and/or practical for what is essentially a 21st century navy set in space.

I recall reading in the TNG Technical Manual way back that it took somewhere along the lines of two decades to design, prototype, and test the Galaxy-class design. While this really isn't canon, it still gives a more realistic timeframe for what would be a fairly massive undertaking. To design a brand new starship class from the ground up takes a lot of research, a lot of section teams (with their own component subteams), and plenty of prototyping.

If you look at the progression of Star Trek shows, we went from reasonable to OMG THAT'S SO COOL THEY'RE ALL DIFFERENT! TOS basi

The philosophies of men

In the Church that I grew up in, the prophets were infallible mouthpieces of God to be unquestionably obeyed.

Nowadays, the Church has NO problems pointing out that a prophet (cough usually Brigham Young or Joseph Fielding Smith cough) were just "speaking as a man" when they taught, usually from the pulpit, a doctrine that has since gotten policy-ified.

So they were taking their philosophies, as men, and mingling it with scripture.

In the temple, I was taught that is literally how Satan works.

Wizard Schools -- The Philosophy and Theory of Conjuration

Wizards are pretty cool.

Many of us in this community come from some form of scientific background, and I've always found it fascinating to try applying that to mages--while magic might not be understandable, it's still in human nature to ascribe patterns and draw conclusions from the available evidence.

In addition, I've found that wizards often seem to feel a little same-y in terms of spell school, since most of their power and versatility comes from the open spell selections that are available to all wizards. But I think there's a lot of untapped potential here in terms of exploring what it means to be an Abjurer or an Evoker in terms of the field of study you've chosen to dedicate yourself to--it's the difference between being a historian and an anthropologist, a psychologist and a sociologist. What kind of knowledge do you possess as a wizard of a specific school?

This week, we'll explore the School of Conjuration.

Self studying philosophy how to avoid becoming a 'crank'?

I have a Bachelor's degree in Math but have become very interested in philosophy(in particular Metaphysics, Epistemology, Phi of Language) since graduating a few years ago. I've noticed however that many amateur philosophers that have clearly studied and written alot appear to think they have knowledge and insights beyond what they actually do. A guy named Steve Patterson comes to mind. I've done a lot of proofs in math and self studied a logic textbook (Hurley - and completed all the exercises) so I can grasp proper inference, is this sufficient crank-proofing? What other advice would you recommend to those deeply interested in philosophy outside of the structure of academia? Any books or lectures covering this topic? Thanks!

Incels are victims of their own philosophies but blame society due to their incapacity to recognize these faults.

You are owed nothing. No one, no thing, owes you for your actions. Having an expectation you're owed equally for your actions is unrealistic, stupid, and privileged. If you go about actions purely for a reciprocation, its not only obvious, but is inheriently flawed. Spending money, time, energy on anything is never a guarenteed good investment, and expecting anything/everything you invest in to be fruitful is again dumb, unrealistic, and priviledged.

If you're someone who feels cheated, scammed, not paid for what you're owed, understand that only exists within your mind. The world is a horribly cruel place, and if your skin is so thin that the lack of reciprocation for your efforts causes you to harbor hatred, realize its that philosophy itself that is feeding that hatred, not the people themselves. You dont deserve anything, you dont deserve to be reading this now, I dont and the same applies to you, and expecting anything more is again privileged, short-sighted, and beyond dumb. Go

The epidemic of young men (often JBP fans) thinking they’re smarter/more educated than people who studied psych/philosophy/poli sci.

Does anyone else get irritated by this?

No, you’re not a genius because you have listened to hundreds of hours of Peterson lectures. Or because you read a couple articles on nutrition or sleep that some bodybuilder posted on social media. You’ve never taken a real psych class. Or philosophy class. Yet, so many of these dudes think they’re God’s gift to earth because they found their Daddy figure in this pseudo-intellectual and can regurgitate his ideology. Sure, there are plenty of people who went to school in those fields who did it kinda arbitrarily and never really engaged with the material, who just don’t really care. But even those people have taken the less β€œfun” subjects like stats, research methods, bio-based classes, that are fundamental for understanding the science behind fields like psych (obviously the others are different but similar principles apply I think). Pop psych, and pop philosophy, are easy to digest but often so un-academic. It’s confirmation bias: if you wan
