If someone wanted to improve their thinking, why should they study philosophy and not just learn logic and critical thinking?

2021.09.28 03:17 MichaelLifeLessons If someone wanted to improve their thinking, why should they study philosophy and not just learn logic and critical thinking?

I've never studied philosophy (e.g. read the works of Aristotle, Plato, Kant, Descartes etc. except for a few passages or quotes online) but I have read and studied a lot of intro to logic and critical thinking textbooks
If someone wanted to improve their thinking, why should they study philosophy and not just learn logic and critical thinking?
PS: I think the reason I've hesitated learning/reading the works of philosophers in the past is that I'm put off by old styles of language e.g. Shakespeare, however, if the works of these philosophers were written or updated into modern English I'd be more inclined

2021.09.28 03:17 laprichaun Modern trading guide relevant to D2R?

I played mostly in 1.09 so I am of the old school soj, shako, windforce, ballista, etc. I tried 1.10 or 1.11 or whatever a little bit so I know some of the strong rune words, but I really don't know what's worth keeping to trade any more. Mostly bases, uniques, and sets I have no idea. I know runes replaced sojs as the currency but have no real idea on worth. Is there any guide that talks about stuff that is good to keep for trade or just to sell? Like I have a bunch of uniques I don't know about, if I should just vendor them or try to trade them.

2021.09.28 03:17 mekamdan I think I outed my brother to my mother

First, English is not my first language.
Yesterday, one of my many gay friends found my brother on tinder. I was stupid and asked for a print. His profile was cute, was really like him. I always has this lingering suspect that he was gay. I, myself, am Bisexual, in a relationship with a man. My brother is older than me by 4 years. We both live in our parents house. I am not going to lie, I was kinda choked by his tinder profile (I NEVER expected him to have one). I didn’t know what to do. I then tried to talk to him (we usually don’t have friendly conversations because he is kind of a closed person). He just went kind of mean to me. My mother knows I am Bi. For some reason I went to talk to her (I immediately regret this - she didn’t feel angry or anything, she was as excited as me to know he was searching for someone even if was a man) . My brother found out and called me a piece of shit for talking to my mother. When he left my room I finally realized why he was angry - I had outed him as gay I think.
I felt really bad. I even tried to kill myself. I did something that is the nightmare for every Lgbt person…. He was kind enough to apologize for calling me piece of shit…. I don’t deserve it
I apologized to him today, but… how can I make things right with him? I am not even sure why I talked with my mother about it, thinking back I was so happy to know he was trying to go out with someone, but it was a stupid thing. He was always a shy kid, the friends he had in his early teens were the ones who started the friendship, and since university he didn’t talk about friends, I even tried to make my friend become his friends but it didn’t work out.
I already apologize but I understands it is not enough. He is someone I admire, but we never had a close relationship. I just want to be closer to him and now I destroyed any chance that I had AND freaking outed him.
I really am a piece of shit

2021.09.28 03:17 youngnstupidandstuff Tips/tricks/suggestions for getting in contact with a rep from Washington Gas?

I'm moving into a condo in DTSS this week and need to set up service with Washington Gas.
I was on hold for 3 hours today before I gave up without reaching anyone. I also tried their online system which gave me an error and no response via DM on Facebook or Twitter. Now I'm reading the many horror stories about the company, not just customer service issues but technicians not showing up, billing issues... and feeling increasingly anxious about potenitally not having gas for days or weeks after moving in.
Anyone have tips/tricks or anything that would reduce my anxiety about this?

2021.09.28 03:17 srobison62 Lower back pain

I’m just over 4 weeks post op(hamstring graft, one stitch in the meniscus). My rehab has been great I feel like I am progressing nicely. But this weekend we drove to see family and I sat in the back seat with my leg propped up on the center console. When I got out my back was sore but not too bad, it’s been progressing worse and worse and last night I could barely sleep. Today at pt I told my therapist and she worked out my quad and told me to use a lacrosse ball on my glutes. I this pain is prob the worse pain I’ve had since the first couple of days of my surgery. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this experience.

My friend is in Workforce Development. She finds jobs for ex cons. According to her, it’s easier to place a murderer (not a serial killer but definitely someone convicted of manslaughter) than a thief. A theft conviction is the kiss of death on a job application.

2021.09.28 03:17 Arkentra Best difficulty to play on that doesn't make me a damage tank, but doesn't make the enemy a tank either.

I'm tired of everything being damage sponges. I normally set the difficulty to about between skyrims equivalent of Apprentice and Adept. But now it's getting to easy.
Jumping it up to "Adept" makes everything tank, but even I have too much health.
So what should I set the slider to? What difficulty do you guys like to play on?

2021.09.28 03:17 heisedren IIL [Music] introspective and calm music reminiscent of a coming of age story, WEWIL?

The first example is this song called "Komarov", specifically the instrumental breakdown from 2:05 onwards:
This next song I heard from this playlist to a tabletop RPG called Alice is Missing. The song is called "Lunenburg", and the whole song fits the feeling which I am searching for.
Finally, there's this one song called "Car Crash in G Major", which is just such a perfectly cozy song for me- even if the lyrics aren't exactly about a happy time.
The general sound I'm looking for is a mix of acoustic/clean electric guitars, and possibly a mix of electronic elements. Alternatively, I can imagine that there are probably a lot of post-rock songs which would fit this atmosphere perfectly!
