Newtonian search schemas changing over time and the relationship this plays with forme is manifest. Philosophers are more than just thinkers, we are writers. One voice together, an agitator or watchdog of the 4th estate, the conscience of consciousness or as the philosopher Stanley Cavell so poignantly points out, "Philosophy is the education of grown ups".
Culturally communicative, philosophy punctuates self discipline. Starting with Socrates, the dialog is questionable, the wisdom difficult in forme yet not without function. Knowing nothing is the Socratic blank slate or at the very least an exercise in humility.
For me, philosophy begins and ends with Thales. This is my deepest philosophical claim. A wellspring for a beginning, in "sinew" 8-ing a Möbius ex nihilo. What are you searching for?
I want to gamify philosophy with the planksip Gadfly app. Look to GitHub for planksip® and the Gadfly project.
