The Philosophical Apprentice

“Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his whole strength and soul can be a true master. For this reason mastery demands all of a person.” Albert Einstein

Where Will I be Philosophically in 40 Years

I found this great post yesterday on the Maverick

Forty Years Ago Today

My journal  entry for 29 October 1972 was just this: “To live a philosophical life in a tumultuous, uncertain world is my goal.”

I pulled it off.  I found my niche.  I achieved my goal.   But to achieve goals one must first posit them, and herein lies another reason to maintain a journal.  One plans and projects.  And then, years later, one enjoys the fruition of those long past projections.

It made me ask where I want to be philosophically in 40 years (note to self-write a post on this).  By the way the Maverick along with Ed Feser are my favorite philosophy blog sites. The maverick in particular has been an inspiration for me.
