Why are all the best philosophers virgins?

>> No.6206719

Ascetic ideal brings a great objective view of things.
However, it can also make the prophets stray from what is truly important and become too clouded by their visions.

Hegel was married though.

Kant and Wittgenstein were both limited by a lack of sexual experience and it shows in their philosophies

Aquinas says that sex/sensuality is the greatest obstacle to intellectual powers because they fill the mind/imagination with all sorts of murk that obstruct. Not Catholic either faggots

>> No.6206780

Wouldn't it be more accurate to say that emotions are the greatest obstacle to intellectual power?

>> No.6206786

No, not really. Shutting out emotions is for intellectual weaklings who can't incorporate feelings into their logic.

If psych philosophers can be counted, Freud was obsessed with sex. Maybe because he never got any.

Sex is a major component of human motivation and psychology though.

I'm a virgin, and starting tomorrow I'm becoming an ascetic.

I won't masturbate or have sex for the rest of my life.

When I reach thirty in ten years' time, I'll share my original thoughts with you guys.

Oh, quick question: how do Western ascetics dress?

>> No.6207293

I'm pretty sure they weren't virgins, fucking was very common indeed

it's just a maymay because today being intellectual means that you failed with girls and then you didn't had anything much better to do than read as a form of escapism. This may happen to some people, but i'm pretty sure no true intellectual would be such a faggot

>> No.6207300

>Kant didn't have sex

I for the life of me can't believe people still say this shit.
He told his butler to tuck him in tight so he wouldn't masturbate when he was like 60.

does that sound like someone with a small libido?
In konigsberg when a young man has a reputation fir size the girls use the expression "hung like Kant"
where was a "silent decade" of his life where he shut himself away with a bunch of female servants and didn't even go out with friends.

but of because when he was 60 he said maybe masturbation is treating yourself as a means people think he was a virgin.

Let me remind you his argument against premarital sex was only that people would think the girls a hoe.
AKA he was banging the shit out of his servant girls for 10 years straight.
probably made them wear maid outfits and shit.


witti was a turbo virgin for sure though.

>> No.6207311

It's only worth it to be ascetic in terms of sex. Masturbation is the least destructive sensual pleasure of all. Even if you have a highly addictive personality plus lack of self-control and actually get addicted to it, it would still be much better than eating junk food every day.

Asceticism can only work in some areas, even then only partly. This is where Aristotle comes in: it's best to satisfy your cravings for pleasure in a non-destructive manner rather than get rid of them. You'll never be 100% free of all desires, that is lunacy and has no basis in biology. You would cease to be a being.

You basically just justified Buddhism completely with that statement.

>> No.6208406

Is buddism actually all about becoming 'one with the universe'? Ceasing to be or think you are a sentient being and simply just be a part of everything just like the sky or the stars without any concept of self or desires or struggles? You always hear that 'one with the universe' shit so much among new age idiots or on a gag in a dumb cartoon but only recently I've begun to think about it.

>> No.6208413

It's mostly about learning how not to suffer by my reckoning.

In order to achieve this the Buddhist must embrace the three treasures; Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.

Buddhism is a big religion. But the core teaching to me is telling us to realize what is happening, and so be at peace with it.

>> No.6208539

There was a study that found people who lose their virginity later have higher iqs. Pretty much if there are more virgins at better colleges. They figured you can add about 2-5 iqs for each year after 15 a person is a virgin. So if you die a virgin in old age that's a lot of iqs. That's why they so smart.
