Philosophy made me wonder about what makes a good argument
Thanks to philosophy, as an addition to my main programme, I was able to better understand what it means to provide a good argument. It feels like I have received a brand-new set of eyes that can find order in this chaos called life. Occurrences and events that used to seem random, weird or just illogical, suddenly started to make sense. Patterns emerged, and with a new, rich assortment of concepts I can now describe them. In most other programmes, one is trained to argue in a certain way. This can sometimes even be done mechanically, without much thought. But philosophy has shown me the hidden structures of what it means to provide a ‘good argument’.
