31/07/2017 On the difficulty of doing philosophy

I once majored in psychology. It is a discipline which intends to be a science, whatever is understood by the term. So, when I began to specialise in it, the instructors trained us students in conducting the psychological research in the right way. The methodology is definitely part and parcel of it. So I recognised. After that, I was a psychologist for about four years and then decided to study philosophy of clinical psychology. The methodological training seems to have had so great an influence on me that now I find it difficult to embark on philosophical research. Every time I set myself a philosophical question about clinical psychology, I got astray and ended up doing psychology rather than philosophy. It happens before I know.
