Before the questions about the wording of the subject more specifically "philosophy," I'd like to state I'm using it more as a general term for "point of view." Since the word "philosophy" seems rather appropriate for the nature of this forum anyways. I've decided to use it instead. What is your personal motivations behind critiquing a persons work? How do you approach it (critique)? What do you seek to get out of it? And anything else you'd like to mention as well... Please feel free to share, I'm trying to build a dialogue... I'm new to this kind of stuff so I'd love to hear feedback of any kind.
