Tell us about yourself! I am a 43 year old wanna be intellect. I love people doing things for me and i guess that includes my reading! My interests vary widely so this site is right up my alley....maybe too much so!!!
It taught me why philosophy matters.
His love for Regina and his understanding that subjectivity is more important than objectivity.Allthough tragic the genius that Soren had taught people to look for more than just getting by. This story told me I need to find my purpose and when I do that will be "my" truth, not what everyone else thinks it should be for me.
His calrity and obvious love for the subject matter.
Truth is what you make of it, not what the world does.
Wonderful summary....I listened to it 3 times. His life just fascinated me
