Besides, Russell argues that minus philosophy, human beings are confined in the prejudice resulting from common sagacity. The origin of common wisdom that bias is derived from originates from, as Bertrand claims, “the practical man, as the word is often used, in an individual who only recognizes material needs.” The substantial needs are grounded in the sciences that will enhance the yielding of certain answers. Philosophy being the deposit of the disciplines where there are vague answers, the has to focus on objects that are non-habitual, non-material and not for any material gain (Russell,27). Socrates believes in the values of philosophy so intensely that when he faced the stipulation of death or ending his thoughtful ways, Socrates states that the unexamined being is unworthy living.
