“The force you have in you to get out of the well alone is the same that makes you do great evil. It is difficult to destroy the latter without crushing the former.”

Professional title:

I am a teacher of philosophy.

What do you do?

I scramble and unscramble students minds with philosophical ideas.


I love philosophy, I love discussing philosophical ideas and I believe that we can change the world for the better if we change human beings while they are still able to open their minds and think.

What should we read?

Go to the article Carl Sagan's Reading List and pick the one that catches your imagination. Today I would choose “But We Were Born Free” by Elmer Holmes Davis.
