    I love Michael Werner’s essays every month! I like the other articles as well, but having a dedicated article that explores the practical application of the philosophy to daily life is wonderful! Thanks for including it.

      seconded. Despite the best efforts of philosophers, philosophy can be relevant to one’s day-to-day life.

    Love the poem! I think I have a new favorite quote.

  3. He could have at least given a little credit to Sartre. 😛

    I love the first sentence of this article, with exception to one word – heroic. I hope you don’t mind, Michael, that when I think about this statement, and possibly repeat it, I’m going to substitute heroic with authentic. That’s the kind of person I’m striving to be. Thank you for sharing your words with us.

    In looking for the interpretations of others on the poem Outwitted, I came across your essay. Thank you for a well-written, insightfull view of humanity.
