Why put Religion and Philosophy in the same category?
I want to filter out religious posts from my forum page but I am very interested in philosophy.
Many philosophers were and are against religion, what are religion and philosophy doing in the same basket?
I have in front of me the full list of HP Categories.
The word "religion" appears 41 times and heads the main Category "Religion and Philosophy".
The word "philosophy" on the other hand, appears only 16 times and heads the main category"Philosophy"
When scroolling through the "Religion and Philosophy" sub-categories, I find a lot of spirituality stuff on "angels", "astrology, divination, etc. but only 3 references to philosophy.
It wouldn't hurt therefore to change the category "Religion and Philosophy" to "Religioin and Spirituality".
You can't just change things willy-nilly. Spirituality is not philosophy, like my philosophy of fishing. Although I may have a philosophy of spirituality,
like I interpret signs.
Exactly. Spirituality is closer to religion than philosophy is.
This is what I mean, philosophy has nothing to do with religion, it is by definition:
Love and pursuit of wisdom by intellectual means and moral self-discipline.
This has already been discussed here:
Changing the topic hierarchy at the very top level has pretty profound implications for our system of interlinking, so we won't do it unless the change is absolutely necessary.
You can find philosophy under this category as well:
