I don’t have a PhD in Philosophy, just a Bachelor’s. I don’t do philosophy in an ivory tower, but I still do philosophy. I think about it. I read about it. I write about it. Philosophy isn’t just for academia — it’s for everyone. You don’t need a PhD to be a philosopher, and you don’t need to be in academia to care about it.
It’s that latter fact I care about. Philosophy isn’t just relevant in the ivory tower, it’s relevant to everyday life. On this blog, I’m focusing on everyday issues that I’m dealing with and approaching them from a philosophical perspective. I’ll also be giving off-the-cuff philosophical replies to current events. I’ll also try to make jokes along the way…and likely fail, but you know what? Failure depends on how you define it.
There. Philosophy just happened. Stay tuned for more.
