Do we really need philosophy of life? I mean, there are whole sections of musonius about how you shouldn't get too upset when someone is mean to you. But isn't that obvious? Maybe there are no wise men. Maybe everything true is obvious, and we just empower certain people to tell us what we already know. You're missing the point. There are people who go cradle to grave having never read a great book, gone on a great adventure, or thought a beautiful thought. They live whole lives without the presence of profundity: happy, carefree, joyous in their nescience. Then, one day, with a smile on their lips, they expire. And... And they need to know if they're wrong wrong wrong!
