    1. Philosophy teacher PhD.. but my blog is about making philosophy simple and accessible to non philosophers. Although I enjoy a lot reading hardcore philosophy but at the end only professional philosophers would read it and understand. So somehow it is useless if not made simple. I am sure u know what I mean.. what about you?

  1. Your post has reminded of what French philosopher Alain (Emile Chartier) said about Thales and his olive business, so I wanted to share. Not sure it goes in the sense of your source, but food for thought anyway. (French original text, I know you can handle it.)

    “Thalès, qui passe pour avoir inventé la géométrie prouvée, et qui était curieux aussi des astres, s’amusa un jour à gagner sur des olives, d’après une prévision juste, et par un jeu d’accapareur, afin de faire voir que la richesse était une des choses qu’il avait le droit de mépriser.” (Propos du 2 janvier 1932)
