Keep thinking alive


“The goal of philosophy is not to compile lists of famous philosophers or of positions and arguments to learn strategies like in chess or debate. Its goal is to keep thinking alive, to ensure that nothing – or as little as possible, at least – is accepted without good reason, without having been built up logically from unshakable¬†foundation.”

– Eva Brann, in The Music of the Republic, 2004
