On Philosophy (from 'Altruism')

Hi all,<br /><br />I''m going to come across as the curmudgeon, but I am shocked at how far philosophic knowledge has fallen!<br /><br />A couple of points:<br /><br />(1) Philosophy is most definitely concerned with what is -- that is Ontology/Metaphysics -- the science or study of being as being;<br /><br />(2) Utilitarianism is John Stuart Mill<br /><br />Incidentally, two works that I very strongly recommend these days for those trying to grasp what has ...
