Why Philosophy?

I will expound on this answer later, but here’s a quick summary:

  1. Logic is fun, and essential to computer science.
  2. I love contructing arguments.
  3. I love constructive argumenting.
  4. I love taking ideas and running with them ad ridiculum.

I’ll give you with one of my favorite philisophical starters: “Is a hotdog a sandwich?” I say yes, but not for the reasons you’re thinking. More to come.
