"A life without philosophy is a wasted life."
in Philosophy

 I am really interested in what people think about this one. If a person just lived, and did not ever think about the life he lived, does that mean he wasted his life? Even if he lived happily?

 Let's assume that there is a shepherd that only lives and doesn't think about life, and there is a scientist who is trying to understand the world and thinking deeply about life itself. It is true that the shepherd will have a very simpler understanding of life and will never be able to know what the scientist knows. But can't the same thing be said about the scientist as well? The scientist, by understanding life at a deeper level, has destroyed it's simplicity and he will never be able to live like the shepherd. Both lost something.

Arguments

  • The shepherd wouldn't have lost anything, because the shepherd never had it to begin with. Also, the shepherd still could potentially gain any knowledge that the scientist has, but the scientist cannot unlearn what he already knows (barring some kind of brain injury, perhaps due to some kind of horrific fiery car crash caused by texting and driving).
  • Life without philosophy is life without nothing, because philosophy is a deep opinion that you think it can help you in my opinion. I think like this. I think every life is meaningful. Thanks!
