Do you ever ask yourself questions like, "Why do we exist; what's the point?" "What is the nature of all things?" or "What role do I have to play in this world?
If you do, you're asking the same questions many great philosophers have asked throughout the ages. Philosophers like Buddha, Confucius, Kant and Socrates, who dedicated their lives to this type of philosophical investigation and the practical application thereof
Our society values the ideals of individual choice and freedom. Yet, more and more, people are realizing that these values are elusive and may even be diminishing. The average person checks their phone 150 times a day. How much freedom is there? We are inspired by the idea that individual choice, freedom, and the resulting happiness, is maximized by philosophical wisdom. We are also interested in a revindication of the word "philosophy" as "love of wisdom" which is the original meaning of the word.
