The Eeyore's Philosophy is an interesting book. It's a classic children's book written by Dr. W. Clement Stone. In The Eeyore's Philosophy, Stone argues that since the creation of the world there have been three different philosophies. These are: religion; reason; and love. Each has its problems, and only one can prevail.
Religion is based on the idea of a creator God. This philosophy tries to solve the problem of why there is evil in the world. According to this philosophy, god created the good and the bad. People who follow this philosophy feel that they are going to be better off than others. Some religions include; Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.
Reason is a philosophical system that answers the question of how things work. It answers the question, "Why is the world good or bad?" Philosophy works with a separation of the mind and body. Reason tries to make sense out of the physical universe. According to this philosophy, love is the key to making things work.
Love is the main force that brings order to the universe and keeps everything in a functional state. According to The Eeyore's Philosophy, love is the key that will open the door for a reason. Reason will work properly when people understand the meaning of love. In fact, reason is the way to open the door to understanding and logic. According to Stone, logic is the tool to uncover the truth. The purpose of this philosophy is to give students the tools they need to become rational.
According to Stone, logical thinking is the way to make a person rational and his emotions are the way to make him passionate. According to him, reasoning is the only thing that will lead a person to the path of love. If reason can be corrupted, love will also be corrupted. Therefore, reasoning is the key that will open the door for love. According to Stone, love is the best medicine because it can cure sickness that has already started to show symptoms.
Eeyore's Philosophy was one of the first philosophies in Western society to promote the concept that logic can lead to truth. The book has inspired scholars such as Karl Menninger, Dietrich von Gruneborg, Arnold Toynbee, Max Weber, J.M. Soll, and many others to develop their own theories about love and reason. Although there are critics who say that this kind of philosophy is superficial and shallow, the principles presented in Eeyore's Philosophy have been used by countless people all over the world and have helped them realize their dreams. This is why, for those who have yet to discover the power of love, this is perhaps the best philosophical text they can read.
