It is philosophy to think about something you can't live without.

Mitsuo Moriguchi



My teacher, who was a researcher in Kant philosophy, often said so when he admonished students. Things you cannot live without would include family and society, in addition, love, laws and faith. I started by asking the grounds for "knowledge," and eventually I thought clothes were definitely one of them, and then I got into the subject for a while. Other professor told me that the world was coming to an end but I still think that I abided by what the teacher taught.
