Okay, hello. Welcome to Free Association. This is the blog version. Today I want to talk about psychological issues. Many people seem to have psychological issues. More people have psychological issues, then don’t want in my experience, seems to be a cluster of psychological issues amongst philosophers, and people interested in metaphysics. The reason for that seems to be that philosophy is the fallback position. When everything else fails, when social services, and psychology and friendship networks. And 12 Step programmes. Oh failing somewhere. All fail in some way. Then philosophy is the fallback position. Look at the deep seated assumptions that are produced, the psychological issues and change those assumptions. And then the psychological issues have reduced or simply go away.
