Philosophies dark side.
Not judging philosophy are the fathers of it, but two words come to mind, rhetoric and the argument. We are not perfect and have flaws. Any persuasion leans to arguing. And then again there's compromise which clouds the original thought. The facts can be misleading.

When the questions of the facts and truth come to bare questions arise as does the argument or persuasion. There is no absolute or perfect fact or answer. How close can one come to the truth in the first place? Observation rational reasoning and logic seem as close as we can come to truth of the facts.
Thoughts please? Paul

you could also use a critical account of whatever thought you wish to examine and draw forth the only intuitive answer that comes to mind. deduction and intuition are also two established methods of scientific enquiry.

I am considering changing my discipline philosophy to psychology. It seems philosophy draws me to arguing instead of debating.

Where psychology draws me to why do I argue in the first place. I am drawn to wanting to be understood by the words I wrote instead of interpreted, which again draws me to a argument.
Thoughts please. pljames

Why am I drawn to a argument when I use philosophy? I cannot use psychology either, in the place of philosophy, because the science method of these disciplines are the same? pljames

There doesn't seem to be an absolute answer. There only seems to be partial answers. Every philosophy only has partial answers. No one has a complete answer, so every philosophy is flawed.
