Opinions on philosophy in VN?

Is there anybody here who's also interested in philosophy? I myself think it plays a vital role in self-development and it can be included in Explore section on noron! Sadly hardly anybody seems to care about it in Vietnam or has a very twisted definition of it (thanks to Leninism/HCM ideology courses taught in our education system). The majority seems to pay attention only to materialism/pragmatism. Your opinions?

Hi friend, so I'm not sure what you meant by "twisted definition" of philosophy, but I agree with you that the majority of ppl & netizens here in VN seem to be more concerned about materialism stuffs, rather than intellectual discussions. But then again I personally believe that this is the case in most countries. The intellectuals, the smarts, are always way fewer, compared to general public.

As for self-development, yes philosophy plays a vital role, probably the most vital one, since it encourages us to think about life, to think about thinking, to dig deeper into matters such as why the world/the universe is run in certain ways and not others.

Sometimes we come to understand ourselves by understanding the world around, sometimes vice versa. But either ways, it's still philosophy being at work. :-)

What kind of philosophical matters are you're working on lately? :D
