Philosophy: Can things get better if there is no competition?
- peter mLv 61 month agoFavorite Answer
Regulated competition a resounding "yes" from me.
2) Greta T had quite a lot of "physical competition" from within
so to speak -though we could guess minimal COMPETITION
Yet SHE Alone went on strike outside of her school one day..
leading later to the President & Vice President having to
acknowledge her considerable achievement. Plenty of
activist philosophy with some understanding there of what
dangers lie ahead (& as I say philosophy MUST JOIN
WITH HER ambitions not least because WE ALL ARE IN
AN Environment EMERGENCY... & I firmly & objectively
believe that philosophy CAN HAVE THE DECISIVE HELP
to put-right-this-frightening & complex MISTAKE of the past
AND Now of-the-Future).
3) Heaven Fitch - a young wrestler from North Carolina using
her honed skill to defeat The BOYS in an important school
And her joy at that remarkable achievement... not least her
beautiful words when prompted about being a Role Model
for other athletes.
"Way to go Heaven F"...another young person who has Achieved !
1) Us here either as a group or as an Individual.
Students all, just why should we give up trying our
best against-considerable-odds to DO & Understand
Hardly any I believe.... for THIS environment IS our environment ;
and as such you like me are FREE TO ROAM THE Textbooks,
free to criticise those learned authoritative written words...
free to look again at the philosopher's PHILOSOPHY on
"YouTube" for example...
FREE TO USE OUR BRAINS & EVEN OUR MISTAKES to
do re-work just WHAT we knew & HOW we know it...
Objective philosophy rather than our naïve type philosophy
that we all did -with free abandon- when we were YOUNG.
Fortunately we are "growing up" (or grown like me!) & yet
we still-can-know-&-can-still-learn how-to-be-rationally-critical
of the philosophy both within us (already learned so to speak)
& understand & put-into-practise how-to-be-better-critically
-rational (= objective) of the philosophy that we come across
when we study others. Even those philosophy or philosopher's
who MAY NOT have made it into WIKIPEDIA or YOUTUBE (!)
There are MILLIONS of old past philosophy & history &
psychology & political books out there... MILLIONS of them
& of those there are specifically those books WHICH HAVE
written... philosophy...knowledge...within. Hidden...type... knowledge...like...PHILOSOPHY MISTAKES of that special
that unique Environment-work. (so to speak & understand)
And if you search you may MAKE your own luck & discover
real-honest-to-god - truth ! Be careful though, having had
a bit of experience myself*, it CAN HIT YOU LIKE A BRICK !?!
Then just to think.... YOU will be RICH...because you would
then "own some gemstone or gemstones of knowledge"
which you should well be able NOT JUST to enhance
your own objective-type-Philosophy BUT rather you will
have obtained THE VERY TOOL or tools to impart some
worth-while knowledge back into our DISCIPLINE... our
unique personalised environment which by our design
demands more & more problem solving.. those answers
TO ANY Human problem, the domain of PHILOSOPHY.

wonderful, objective & beautifully expressive Essay by
KR Popper, the late historian-of-Ideas par excellence &
fantastic philosopher to boot.Source(s): my so-called-blessing TO SEARCH & TO LEARN.. "competitively & diligently as you will." You may not regret it !

Now we have a model for how God may resurrect this very body: He does so by, ... there is no danger of my 'fissioning out of existence' due to competition with my ... body are the kinds of things that can last through time (some talk as though

The concepts represented by "better" and "competition" are meaningless without each other.
Situations that may be described, by any given individual, as "competition" do not necessarily result in anything that a given individual would describe as, "better".
Describing something as, "better" follows a comparison of two or more things. It is an assessment, of some aspect of their qualities, and the desirability (or perhaps some other method of prioritization) of those qualities.

things can not get better if there is no competition
for things to "get better" it would at the very least have to compete with it self.

competition is a comparison
And there are hundreds of ways to compare.
Vanity is a comparison, the increase or decrease.
capitalism is comparison
The competition is not bad. The bad thing is not knowing that in one more way to compare.

I guess that you encompass within the competition the wars, too. Naturally, world would be better without wars. And I guess that sport is wrong competition, too. (When somebody praise his success he also praise the failure and blame of the other side.)

Yes...you can push yourself more and more. Unless of course you would consider that competing with yourself.
