    Default The Intellectual Life and its Discontents

    The Khmer Rouge of Cambodia and Boko Haram of Central Africa are violently opposed to intellectuals and to reading and writing.

    And so many here show no interest in the intellectual life. I find this hard to understand, aren't you curious about the intellectual life?

    The intellectual life is readily available to you, you only have to open a book. The first book I opened was, "The History fo Western Philosophy". I worked as a bank teller and read "The History of Western Philosophy", during my lunch break, while I ate two pies, a coke, and a ninish tart.

    The intellectual life is ongoing, questions lead to more questions, controversies lead to more controversies, passionately held beliefs are held and discarded, new paradigms are born and old paradigms die. We learn to live with what we don't know, yet want to know more.

    So many are impoverished, yet feel entitled to be heard, and defend their ego passionatly..

    I really like this new blog but it appears to be posted in the wrong part of the forum.

    I liked that book too Mole, although I think Russell also wrote better ones, it sounds like you had a great lunch time routine.
