This is a blog about wisdom (sometimes), and how philosophy is impotent to secure it for us. It’s also a blog about what I’m reading, and what I’m thinking about what I’m reading. I hope to have guest posters and even collaborators as well. NB: the entries on this blog vary widely in quality because, well, it’s a blog.


Happy is a man who finds wisdom¬†and who acquires understanding.” – Prov. 3:13


For with much wisdom is much sorrow;¬†as knowledge increases, grief increases.” – Eccles. 1:18


“[Test] everything. Hold on to what is good.” – 1 Thess. 5:21


“Somehow or other no statement is too absurd for some philosopher to make” -Cicero
