48 – Thoughts About Your Philosophy

Hi, Dr. Ben Young here and you are listening to the Perio Hygienist Podcast, a podcast for professional colleagues and anyone else who cares to listen.

Today I would like to give you some thoughts about Your Philosophy. You have one you know. Everyone does.

Yes, there is an academic field called philosophy and it is inhabited by people who have earned degrees in philosophy and are called philosophers. And it is certainly a deep subject when one attempts to understand what philosophers have, themselves, come to believe over time. And it is clear that some of what they have discovered affected not only the societies they lived in for both good and I’ll but have also laid the groundwork for future generations and their societies, cultures, and nations as well.

Your academic and clinical training came out of your formal training and textbooks. However, all of this is built on something deeper, and foundation that often is invisible, unless we go there and think about it. That’s the purpose of my remarks today.
