Obviously, every blog must have its first post, so here goes… Over the past few months, I’ve been giving quite some thought to themes such as where my personal satisfaction and dissatisfaction with my life comes from (hint: it’s pretty much from within), as well as where our current global economic situation is headed.
Given that I lack (complete and/or certified) academic, scientific training, I would never consider myself a “professional philosopher”, but rather someone who spends a considerable amount of time being “in awe” about the quirky little ways in which life seems to work when it comes to outcomes (either foreseen or unforeseen).
And maybe there are others out there who enjoy doing the same thing, in which case I would be thrilled to “meet” you! This is my way of “getting in touch” by putting some of my thoughts out, and whoever wishes to reply, please do so 🙂
Hope to hear from you…
This is a great start, Jochen. Many great philosophical thoughts come from people like you and me, who, in our spare time, like to think deeply and thoroughly about our lives and the world in which we live. Doing so is not only a motivation, but also an exceptional joy. Our thoughts may not be professional, but certainly genuine in that they originate from our daily lives. Looking forward to reading your future posts. By the way, I like both the title and the cover photo for this blog.
