Can philosophers help resolve the real problems that people have in their lives?

Nothing is certain of anything which was ever written or thought. There's only a greater of lesser probability of it being so.

Why should this disturb my "peace of mind" and what piece of that would it be?
Suppose the problem isn't thought? A person must try a new approach. Sometimes a good piece of ass leads to peace of mind. It's worth a shot.

That may suffice for some but I was looking for something more permanent! If a "piece of ass" were sufficient there would be a lot of peace in the world since there's plenty of them around! :lol:
