Resolved: Please Move Philosophy Forum Category

    I would like to propose the moving of the Philosophical Topic and Forum Category from the Theological {Religion & Beliefs} into its own Topic and Discussion. Many of we philologists and philosophers prefer to be void of the stereotype when writing about arguments or subjects, even though sometimes the sciences and theologies do come into play. It is also a very trendy area and brings with it a vast array of writers, thinkers and such. Would be very thoughtful, on Hub Pages part, to have a standalone area dedicated to Philosophical ideas, Publications {books, white papers, etc, Historical Thinkers, Modern Approaches, Pseudo and Mechanical Philosophy to name a few} and discussions surrounding them.

    Thanks in advance,

    The ontology of God is a pretty core component of Western philosophy. Would you kick Erasmus or Aquinas out of the room?

    Not that we get many of those, I admit. It's usually, "He does so exist, it says so right here!" Which, I feel you on.

    And what does philology have to do with it?

    I completely agree with this and was actually going to suggest this myself.

    For some philosophical discussions/hubs/questions etc. you may want a non-religious viewpoint. One that is more open-minded

    Thank you Gentlemen, let us hope this is seen and implemented.

    @shadesbreath: Philology has everything to do with it. The major portion of studying historical philosophies is the language used by the thinker and how, over time, words changed and altered many arguments//considerations.

    I agree. Religion is a part of philosophy, not the other way around.

    There is a stand alone Philosophy category under the Education and Science category.  smile
