Why do you think philosophy is so unpopular here?
#9
I think the reason it so unpopular is that deductive logic is not something most people consciously practice and, ever since Greeks like Aristotle formalized the consideration of ideas, Philosophy has typically been performed by people possessing some kind of more than mediocre ability in formalized logic.

Or maybe most people just think Philosophy is boring.  And I guess they're right if by Philosophy it is meant "an attempt to contradict common sense with assertions like 'nothing moves.' "
