Socrates is often quoted as saying
“The unexamined life is not worth living.”
But I don’t fully agree.
I just think that it’s nowhere near as good as the life that’s examined, crafted, and lived with clear intention. And where there is a robust rationale for doing so that’s based on reality.
On this page I’m collecting short essays I’ve penned on various topics written in response to thinking about what I see as important and common issues in modern life.
They’re by no means finished nor fixed in stone. So please feel free to leave a comment after an essay if it stirs you or you feel you have some worthwhile additions or changes to suggest.
As a fledging writer and amateur philosopher, I’d be grateful.
We all have a philosophy of life.
