Philosophy and This Actual World

Metapsychology Online Reviews
In his An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding David Hume says, "The mere philosopher is a character, which is commonly but little acceptable in the world, as being supposed to contribute nothing either to the advantage or pleasure of society; while he lives remote from communication with mankind, and is wrapped up in principles and notions equally remote from their comprehension." Martin Benjamin is equally annoyed with this conception of philosophers and has dedicated his professional life to demonstrating the relevance of philosophical thinking to real human problems.
