This is a philosophy blog. In my posts I will be examining the world and our place in it. I take my inspiration from many sources – I find philosophy in politics, science, events in my life. I am writing this blog for several reasons, but the main two are to keep my mind sharp and to put my thoughts out there to create an opportunity for conversation. Discussion is the fuel of philosophy, so please leave comments, criticisms, and (if you are so moved) praise and promises of eternal fealty.
