Let's see who's cool and who isn't

Ontology is the philosophical study of the nature of being, becoming, existence or reality as well as the basic categories of being and their relations.


Epistemology studies the nature of knowledge, justification, and the rationality of belief.

I look at both. Ontology is fun from some perspectives but epistemology is always what I enjoy arguing about.

Broadly speaking I'm an absurdist.

Does epistemology also include the study of why we study ontology?

Epistemology is about the way we know things, when Ontology is about what things are.
It's like the study of what there is in the world vs the study of how you know it is there.
I took a general philosophy class in college, so I understand a little bit of both.
It's nonsensical to just follow one entirely, disregarding the practice of the other.

Why not both?

Or whatever absurdist humanism means
p sure that's just existentialism (usually)

Camus tried to model humanism into his theory though

Epistemology would ask whether we could know an ontology of something

i don't give enough of a shit to look into either closely but i imagine both are equally useful for a well rounded basis of knowledge

as for what philosophical doctrine i subscribe to, the one which says the universe is a completely random system which we have little or no control over

it's pretty cool. There are a lot of binaries (realism/anti-realism, idealism/materialism etc) that change how you answer it, lots of room to work with. People tend to characterise philosophy as very specific things but it's really really varied.
