Social Philosophy quotes by John Stuart Mill
#1. All students of man and society who possess that first requisite for so difficult a study, a due sense of its difficulties, are aware that the besetting danger is not so much of embracing falsehood for truth, as of mistaking part of the truth for the whole. It might be plausibly maintained that in almost every one of the leading controversies, past or present, in social philosophy, both sides were in the right in what they affirmed, though wrong in what they denied; and that if either could have been made to take the other's views in addition to its own, little more would have been needed to make its doctrine correct. #Quote by John Stuart Mill
Social Philosophy quotes by Ammon Hennacy
#2. Despite the popular idea of anarchists as violent men, Anarchism is the one non-violent social philosophy. ... The function of the Anarchist is two-fold. By daily courage in non-cooperation with the tyrannical forces of the State and the Church, he helps to tear down present society; the Anarchist by daily cooperation with his fellows in overcoming evil with good-will and solidarity builds toward the anarchistic commonwealth which is formed by voluntary action with the right of secession. #Quote by Ammon Hennacy
Social Philosophy quotes by Jacques Barzun
#3. It is not clear to anyone, least of all the practitioners, how science and technology in their headlong course do or should influence ethics and law, education and government, art and social philosophy, religion and the life of the affections. Yet science is an all-pervasive energy, for it is at once a mode of thought, a source of strong emotion, and a faith as fanatical as any in history. #Quote by Jacques Barzun
Social Philosophy quotes by B.R. Ambedkar
#4. My social philosophy may be said to be enshrined in three words: liberty, equality and fraternity. Let no one, however, say that I have borrowed by philosophy from the French Revolution. I have not. My philosophy has roots in religion and not in political science. I have derived them from the teachings of my Master, the Buddha. #Quote by B.R. Ambedkar
Social Philosophy quotes by Annette Baier
#5. That any society ought to have philosophers in its midst seems to us an axiom of any possible social philosophy. Probably any society will have some reflective people in it, some Socrates or Mandeville or Wollstonecraft to ask awkward questions, but even if this is to be welcomed, it does not follow that any society should have professional philosophers in its midst, nor, if it does have them, that their activities should the take the form ours assume. The very professionalization of philosophy makes the likelihood more remote that those awkward questions, necessary for a healthy social consciousness, should come from philosophers. It may make for better philosophy and a better society if they come from a social misfit like Diogenes, or from an anathemetized lense-grinder like Spinoza, or from a man of affairs, an unsuccessful aspirant to two chairs of philosophy, like Hume. (Even more conventionally acceptable moral philosophers like Aquinas and Butler earned their living as clerics, not as philosophers.)

The questions we need to ask occasionally are, first, why anyone should be a philosopher (in our sense); second, why anyone else should pay one to be a philosopher; third, how many should be paid philosophers; and fourth, what exact form the activity of paid philosophers should take. #Quote by Annette Baier
Social Philosophy quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#6. Whether the human mind can advance or not, is a question too little discussed, for nothing can be more dangerous than to found our social philosophy on any theory which is debatable but has not been debated. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Social Philosophy quotes by William Wickenden
#7. It is this ideal of progress through cumulative effort rather than through genius - progress by organised effort, progress which does not wait for some brilliant stroke, some lucky discovery, or the advent of some superman, has been the chief gift of science to social philosophy. #Quote by William Wickenden
Social Philosophy quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#8. The decisions of the courts on economic and social questions depend on their economic and social philosophy. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Social Philosophy quotes by Hilaire Belloc
#9. Under the old social philosophy which had governed the Middle Ages, temporal, and therefore all economic, activities were referred to an eternal standard. The production of wealth, it distribution and exchange were regulated with a view to securing the Christian life of Christian men. In two points especially was this felt: First in securing the independence of the family, which can only be done by the wide distribution of property, in others words the prevention of the growth of a proletariat; secondly, in the close connection between wealth and public function. #Quote by Hilaire Belloc
Social Philosophy quotes by Henrik Ibsen
#10. The truth is that there are two men in Ibsen - an idealist, exalted to the verge of sentimentality, and a critic, hard, inexorable, remorseless, to the verge of cynicism. What we call his "social philosophy" is a modus vivendi arrived at between them. Both agree in repudiating "marriage for love"; #Quote by Henrik Ibsen
Social Philosophy quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#11. The distinctive principle of Western social philosophy is individualism. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Social Philosophy quotes by Peter Marshall
#12. The continued appeal of anarchism can probably be attributed to its enduring affinity with both the rational and emotional impulses lying deep within us. It is an attitude, a way of life as well as a social philosophy. It presents a telling analysis of existing institutions and practices, and at the same time offers the prospect of a radically transformed society. #Quote by Peter Marshall
Social Philosophy quotes by Greg Anderson
#13. Medicine, academia, politics, social philosophy, capitalism, even religion all consistently miss the mark.
If we base our lives on their precepts, we, too, will miss the mark of our highest calling. The greatest pursuit is not good health, unsurpassed wisdom, economic surplus, political freedom, or even faith that can move mountains.
Unconditional, nonjudgmental loving. This is our aim, life's single highest and most rewarding pursuit. #Quote by Greg Anderson
Social Philosophy quotes by Seneca The Younger
#14. Man is a social animal. #Quote by Seneca The Younger
Social Philosophy quotes by Hugh Nibley
#15. Every way of life produces its own environment and in turn is influenced by that environment. #Quote by Hugh Nibley
Social Philosophy quotes by Jane Goodall
#16. The more we learn of the true nature of non-human animals, especially those with complex brains and corresponding complex social behavior, the more ethical concerns are raised regarding their use in the service of man
whether this be in entertainment, as "pets," for food, in research laboratories, or any of the other uses to which we subject them. #Quote by Jane Goodall
Social Philosophy quotes by Trent Reznor
#17. I think the whole aspect of social networking is vulgar and repulsive in a lot of ways. But I also see why it's appealing - I've had that little high you get from posting stuff online. But then you think, 'Did I need to say that?' I've explored that enough to know to stay kind of quiet these days. #Quote by Trent Reznor
Social Philosophy quotes by Daniel Beaty
#18. I believe that personal healing is a path to social transformation. #Quote by Daniel Beaty
Social Philosophy quotes by Davan Yahya Khalil
#19. No matter how bad things get in life, no matter how many times things change, hang onto your ability to dream. Those dreams may well take you further than you could have ever believed. #Quote by Davan Yahya Khalil
Social Philosophy quotes by Osamu Dazai
#20. For someone like myself in whom the ability to trust others is so cracked and broken that I am wretchedly timid and am forever trying to read the expression on people's faces. #Quote by Osamu Dazai
Social Philosophy quotes by Cornel West
#21. We're beings towards death, we're featherless two-legged linguistically conscious creatures born between urine and feces whose bodies will one day be the culinary delight of terrestrial worms. That's us. #Quote by Cornel West
Social Philosophy quotes by Emily St. John Mandel
#22. No more social media, no more scrolling through litanies of dreams and nervous hopes and photographs of lunches, cries for help and expressions of contentment and relationship-status updates with heart icons whole or broken, plans to meet up later, pleas, complaints, desires, pictures of babies dressed as bears or peppers for Halloween. No more reading and commenting on the lives of others, and in so doing, feeling slightly less alone in the room. No #Quote by Emily St. John Mandel
Social Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#23. Don't fear failure, fear inaction. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Social Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#24. At the time of death, life may end, but I will continue to live in this beautiful world among my beloved new and old friends. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Social Philosophy quotes by Don Kates
#25. A half century ago Herbert Wechsler could justify the legal right of deadly force self-defense in terms of the "universal judgment that there is no social interest in preserving the lives of the aggressors at the cost of those of their victims." That is not a universal judgment today. #Quote by Don Kates
Social Philosophy quotes by Carl Von Clausewitz
#26. It is paltry philosophy if in the old-fashioned way one lays down rules and principles in total disregard of moral values . As soon as these appear one regards them as exceptions, which gives them a certain scientific status, and thus makes them into rules. Or again one may appeal to genius , which is above all rules; which amounts to admitting that rules are not only made for idiots , but are idiotic in themselves. #Quote by Carl Von Clausewitz
Social Philosophy quotes by Nawal El Saadawi
#27. If you do not love yourself, well, you cannot do anything well, that's my philosophy. #Quote by Nawal El Saadawi
Social Philosophy quotes by Ernest Cadorin
#28. There is an intrinsic connection between discipline and freedom that affects us in many aspects of our lives. #Quote by Ernest Cadorin
Social Philosophy quotes by Anthony T. Hincks
#29. Road Rage is how a person reacts when they are unhappy within themselves. They look for suitable victims so that they can justify letting out their rage, and vent their frustrations.
It is never justified, and never should be.
Frustrations don't have a place on the motorway or on the street.
It's simple.
If you're angry....don't drive.
If you're frustrated with life....don't drive.
If you drive, chances are that you could hurt or kill other people, yourself or more importantly...those that you love. #Quote by Anthony T. Hincks
Social Philosophy quotes by Kirsten Beyer
#30. Let us await what will surley come without fear of unforseen concequences #Quote by Kirsten Beyer
Social Philosophy quotes by Robert B. Edgerton
#31. there is a pervasive assumption among anthropologists that a population's long-standing beliefs and practices - their culture and their social institutions - must play a positive role in their lives or these beliefs and practices would not have persisted. Thus, it is widely thought and written that cannibalism, torture, infanticide, feuding, witchcraft, painful male initiations, female genital mutilation, cermonial rape, headhunting, and other practices that may be abhorrent to many of us must serve some useful function in the societies in which they are traditional practices. Impressed by the wisdom of biological evolution in creating such adaptive miracles as feathers for flight or protective coloration, most scholars have assumed that cultural evolution too has been guided by a process of natural selection that has produced traditional beliefs and practices that meet peoples' needs. #Quote by Robert B. Edgerton
Social Philosophy quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#32. Living in a spiritual manner, exhibiting a joyous and mindful embrace of the manifold wonders of an earthy existence, enhances life. A person develops spirituality by spending solitary time thinking about the larger issues in life. Scripting a personal philosophy for conducting a person's life is a spiritual testament. A spiritual person seeks a system of general truths that encoded statement transforms their character. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Social Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#33. She is like a flower. Her smile illuminates the whole world. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Social Philosophy quotes by Rassool Jibraeel Snyman
#34. He who is absolutely right is absolutely wrong #Quote by Rassool Jibraeel Snyman
Social Philosophy quotes by Robert Greene
#35. We are a social animal, power only exists in a social sense, we have to work in groups. #Quote by Robert Greene
Social Philosophy quotes by James Redfield
#36. The thought of both East and West (philosophies) can indeed be integrated into a higher truth. They show us that the West is correct in maintaining that life is about progress about evolving toward something higher. Yet the East is also correct in emphasizing that we must let go of control with the ego. We can't progress by using logic alone. We have to attain a fuller consciousness, an inner connection with God, because only then can our evolution toward something better be guided by a higher part of ourselves. #Quote by James Redfield
Social Philosophy quotes by Brennan Manning
#37. The confessing church of American Ragamuffins needs to join Magdalene and Peter in witnessing that Christianity is not primarily a moral code but a grace-laden mystery; it is not essentially a philosophy of love but a love affair; it is not keeping rules with clenched fists but receiving a gift with open hands. #Quote by Brennan Manning
Social Philosophy quotes by Bill Walsh
#38. For me the starting point for everything - before strategy, tactics, theories, managing, organizing, philosophy, methodology, talent, or experience - is work ethic. Without one of significant magnitude, you're dead in the water. #Quote by Bill Walsh
Social Philosophy quotes by Richard Dawkins
#39. True warfare in which large rival armies fight to the death is known only in man and in social insects. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Social Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#40. To be happy, learn to forget and forgive. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Social Philosophy quotes by Vishwanath S J
#41. The mystery in "Eyes of your Eyes" can never be found in the interstellar space unless you encounter timelessness. #Quote by Vishwanath S J
Social Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#42. A writer uses his pen as a gun to kill readers. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Social Philosophy quotes by Jay L. Garfield
#43. Western philosophers gained access to Asian and African traditions initially by noting similarities and differences. But that, as A.C. Mukerji, of Allahabad, was to note in 1932, is not to do philosophy, but is at best a preparation. #Quote by Jay L. Garfield
Social Philosophy quotes by Blaise Pascal
#44. The world is a good judge of things, for it is in natural ignorance, which is man's true state. The sciences have two extremes which meet. The first is the pure natural ignorance in which all men find themselves at birth. The other extreme is that reached by great intellects, who, having run through all that men can know, find they know nothing, and come back again to that same ignorance from which they set out; but this is a learned ignorance which is conscious of itself. Those between the two, who have departed from natural ignorance and not been able to reach the other, have some smattering of this vain knowledge and pretend to be wise. These trouble the world and are bad judges of everything. The people and the wise constitute the world; these despise it, and are despised. They judge badly of everything, and the world judges rightly of them. #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Social Philosophy quotes by Marissa Meyer
#45. In the meantime, you should come watch this. They're talking about us on all the channels. We're famous."

"No, thank you. I'd rather not see myself acting like a maniac at the most important social event of the year. #Quote by Marissa Meyer
Social Philosophy quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#46. [I]n so far as postmodern politics involves a '[t]heoretical retreat from the problem of domination within capitalism,' it is here, in this silent suspension of class analysis, that we are dealing with an exemplary case of the mechanism of ideological displacement: when class antagonism is disavowed, when its key structuring role is suspended, 'other markers of social difference may come to bear an inordinate weight; indeed, they may bear all the weight of the sufferings produced by capitalism in addition to that attributable to the explicitly politicized marking.' In other words, this displacement accounts for the somewhat 'excessive' way the discourse of postmodern identity politics insists on the horrors of sexism, racism, and so on - this 'excess' comes from the fact that these other '-isms' have to bear the surplus-investment from the class struggle whose extent is not acknowledged. #Quote by Slavoj Zizek
Social Philosophy quotes by Scott Pelley
#47. Most people don't realize that two-thirds of the federal budget is Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and the Pentagon. The U.S. government is an insurance company with an Army. #Quote by Scott Pelley
Social Philosophy quotes by Immanuel Kant
#48. There is no freedom, but everything in the world takes place entirely according to nature....Transcendental freedom is therefore opposed to the law of causality, and represents such a connection of successive states of effective causes, that no unity of experience is possible with it. It is therefore an empty fiction of the mind, and not to be met with in any experience.
We have, therefore, nothing but nature, in which we must try to find the connection and order of cosmical events. Freedom (independence) from the laws of nature is no doubt a deliverance from restraint, but also from the guidance of all rules. For we cannot say that, instead of the laws of nature, laws of freedom may enter into the causality of the course of the world, because, if determined by laws, it would not be freedom, but nothing else but nature. Nature, therefore, and transcendental freedom differ from each other like legality and lawlessness. The former, no doubt, imposes upon the understanding the difficult task of looking higher and higher for the origin of events in the series of causes, because their causality is always conditioned. In return for this, however, it promises a complete and well-ordered unity of experience; while, on the other side, the fiction of freedom promises, no doubt, to the enquiring mind, rest in the chain of causes, leading him up to an unconditioned causality, which begins to act by itself, but which, as it is blind itself, tears the thread of rules by which alone a #Quote by Immanuel Kant

#49. Let it be love that you are living in. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Social Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#50. We can never control change; we can only control our response to change. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Social Philosophy quotes by Debasish Mridha
#51. The best road I want to walk on is the road surrounded by peace. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Social Philosophy quotes by Neelam Saxena Chandra
#52. Life is a closed loop control system. You take inputs from your environment, from what you read, from your social interactions and from your family and it goes as a feedback into your system, modifying you a little every day. Those who are obstinate are like an open loop control system where nothing affects them. It isn't really good to remain in an open loop for not only will you be isolated, but also miss out important things in life. It isn't too wise either to let that feedback system be so strong that you forget your own ideals and principles. A balance is necessary. #Quote by Neelam Saxena Chandra
