Philosophy really matters

For Popper, philosophy is an attempt to get nearer to a true view of the world, that is, a view that corresponds to the facts. This makes philosophy a serious and important activity. To approach the truth, we must scrutinize assump­tions — metaphysical, moral, and political — that affect everything we do. So philosophy is not just an intellectual game. It really does matter.
