FIRESIDE PHILOSOPHY

FIRESIDE PHILOSOPHY
Mini-site on patterns specialists miss. Bedfellow to specialization, it offers ideas not truths, ‘cos there’s only one truth – there isn’t one. See Eye On the World for current affairs posts, and World History for how we got here.

QUESTIONS  SCIENCE  MORALITY  REALITY
LOVE  KNOWLEDGE  GRADUATES  ILLNESS
MADNESS  DEATH  RELIGION

All the philosophy in all the world is not worth the spilling of a drop of blood.
