Philosophical differences

While there are certain brute facts of existence, many important questions can't be answered by an examination of external reality (sense data?) - or at all, really. You get to choose your position on these issues in terms of what appeals to you.

For example, the existence of other minds: the reason to believe in the existence of other minds is that life is more enjoyable if other people are real. Is that a problem?
