Dear Reader

Please feel free to comment on any of the essays, even if they are old, and share them with your friends (no matter how old they are ;).

As this is a philosophical blog, I merely ask you to understand its line of argument before adding your thoughts - which I am really looking forward to hear. In honour of your serious aspiration, I promise to reply to any substantial contribution of yours.

In case there is something you're not quite able to follow, e.g. due to mental leaps of mine, kindly ask for clarification.

If you haven't read my blog regularly, or even if so, it might be helpful for you to know where I am coming from. Therefore I have given a short survey of who I feel I am (mentally) along with a list of material to "read". Those sources do not necessarily represent my view, of course, but each of them contributed to it one way or another. I found it extremely useful to first try to comprehend them completely, then compare them to my personal experience and other sources, and only then begin to muse on and evaluate them. I invite you to follow the same procedure when picking one of those sources or one of my essays. Please appreciate the hard work, thought processes, and time put into producing them.

You may freely copy articles or parts of them for non-commercial use, as long as you make clear they are not your works, and refer to their original web addresses here on the blog. (Licenced under Creative Commons, Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported)

Oh, and, thank you for reading :)
