I wanted to be a philosopher. I went to the university. I taught at the university. I left because they no longer did real philosophy at the university.
I love Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Sextus Empiricus, Buddha, Jesus, Augustine, Aquinas, Maimonides, Duns Scotus, Peter Abelard, Rene Descartes, John Locke, Soren Kierkegaard, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Michel Foucault... among others.
I'm starting a website of my own: www.thefreshphilosopher.webs.com and hoping to purchase the domain name soon. Philosophy, religion, politics, life... part news aggregate, as well. Have some friends who are going to contribute with their specialties. Looking to turn around this beast-machine we call "The State" and do something meaningful in my community in the process.
