An Ode to Philosophy

Where do we learn to think logically,
     And apply the criteria of truth?
Where do we hold up the mirror
     To expose our hidden assumptions?
Where do we learn about paradigms
     In science, history, religion, art?
Where do we ask about right and wrong,
     Beauty and systems of value?
Where do we unfold the assumptions
     Of politics and social structures?
Where do we reflect on the mechanisms
     Of interpretations of God and the Bible?

Sounds like we have owed a lot to philosophy.
