Answer for question 4196.

If money wasn't an issue, would you go back to school to study something? If so, what would it be and why?
Yes!!
Maybe Ancient Chinese history, language, culture, and philosophy, because i think i would find it interesting.

Maybe Theoretical Physics. Same reason.

Maybe Sufism. How was it possible for Islam to inspire such marvelous poetry?

Maybe Philosophy. When i started college about 63 years ago, i thought i wanted to be a philosophy major. The Introduction to Philosophy course totally turned me off. I have often regretted that i did not stick with it. I have been reading philosophy ever since, but as a diletante, not a serious scholar.

Maybe i would study at a Buddhist or Taoist monastery. If i live long enough, i might actually do that. That is either where my heart is at or else it is my current autistic obsession.

How funny. That was my experience of my intro philosophy class as well. Though we mostly read Plato, and I'd enjoyed reading Plato, in a disappointed sort of way.

I think i was too eager to create philosophy before i had any idea bout what philosophy was. :o

That kind of thing, among others, tends to be insufficiently narrated in philosophy classes, I think.
