Is Academic Philosophy Useless for Understanding Reality?

2 posts in this topic

I'm taking a really intense philosophy of mind class at college right now, and I got to thinking back when Leo has talked about academic philosophy and that it's a limited, pyramid scheme, etc. Obviously it is massively flawed and, (at least in the class I'm taking) is totally caught in the materialist paradigm. Nonetheless, has anyone here found any value in it? Do you think that it helps with complex reasoning skills that are important for understanding reality?

Curious to hear your thoughts.

@Insightful27 you can't understand reality, because you are already. 

It is impossible men to know what he thinks he already knows.
