If philosophy is at an end, it is because it has done its task – a task of making us conscious. “Conscious of who?” I hear a brother ask. Conscious of ourselves. Philosophy was a task of exposition of human psychology – at least, up to an appreciable extent – and then we proceed from there.

But, don’t be mistaken that philosophy is at an end, there are several, nice philosophers still out there mining human psychology like this man.

Philosophy has always been a creative process, it is only when it got tired of itself from being too full of itself did it get stale. The first philosopher is really Socrates, and perhaps the only philosopher, for he knew the true task of philosophy and kept his hands tenaciously in the childlike flame of philosophy.

Philosophy is at an end but isn’t.
