What is What Is Called Thinking?

This is my philosophical diary, an attempt to share snapshots of my “spirit in flight.”

In this house we believe that:

  • The good life is a thoughtful one.

  • Expertise is not the same as wisdom.

  • Study is an end in itself.

  • The life of the mind needs a home beyond academia.

  • Abstract questions have existential import.

  • Reverence and skepticism are both needed.

  • Paradoxes can set us free.
