I'm just an ordinary guy that likes to learn a little about a wide variety of subjects. I'm a noob and don't know all the WP rules and probably never will. I think I know enough to contribute and modify some of the content and maybe correct some spelling and whatnot, but I'll probably never be much good at the style and format stuff. I enjoy Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology and a lot of other things that end in -ology and will likely be in those areas most of the time. I'm basically a peace, love, contribution and cooperation kind of guy. Please don't be offended if I change what you wrote or ask questions about it on the talk page, I'm not intending to offend anyone, just trying to get a little closer to the truth if possible. Feel free to email or leave me a message. Madam, I am single and looking. Thanks, --Jim 21:49, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

WikiProject Philosophy task list

  • Optimism should have a separate page that focuses on the philosophical idea of optimism and distinguishes the philosophical view from "positive thinking" and other everyday uses of the word.
  • Philosophy of social science, has some okay points but requires elaboration on Wittgenstein and Winch, perhaps other linguistic critiques, whether logical positivist or postmodernist.
  • Exchange value needs to be redone, it shouldn't be under 'Marxist theory'- although it's an important component of Marxist theory it's also vital for all economics. That said the articles weight on Marx is also absurd.
  • German Idealism and the articles related to it may need to be rewritten or expanded to avoid undue weight on Arthur Schopenhauer.
  • Protected values first section confuses right action and values and needs a copy edit, moving and wikifying
  • Quality (philosophy) needs a more clear explanation.
  • Socratic dialogues could do with some tidying and clarification. See the talk page for one suggested change.
  • Problem of universals: The introductory definition is (perhaps) fixed. But, the article is poor. Check out the German version.
  • Teleology: the article is shallow and inconsistent.
  • Existentialism: the quality of this article varies wildly and is in desperate need of expert attention.
  • Analytic philosophy This is a very major topic, but still has several sections which are stubs, and several topics which are not covered.
  • Lifeworld A philosophical concept that seems to have fallen exclusively into the hands of the sociologists. Could use some attention; it's a major and complex issue in phenomenology.
  • Amorality This page needs great attention as it is currently totally uninformative and, in my opinion, risks more to confuse readers than inform them, as most people will come here with no knowledge of amoralism and worse, often with huge bias against it.
  • Perception Needs the attention of philosophically minded Wikipedians. This is only the start of an overhaul of perception and related articles.
