athens, not a bad place to think about philosophy
May 16, 2011 § Leave a comment
Since I was in Italy on vacation I thought it might be nice just to keep going to Greece to hang out with a good friend of mine from grad school, Adair. She works in the foreign service and I hadn’t seen her in 5 or so years. We had hiked up lykavitos, a hill near their house last night, and watched the sunset. Her husband Brad took the gorgeous photo above of the Parthenon. He also does photography work with the Embassy & you can check out some of his amazing photos here. He has some incredible photos of the riots in Athens.
I also thought it would be fun to think about philosophy this week. In college, philosophy classes were some of my favorite classes I took, especially the classes on logic. It’s probably why I ended up doing strategy in advertising. I like figuring out “human truths” as we call them.
This week I’ll be visiting many of the sights where it all began and reading about how it is we started thinking about ourselves in that way. Doing this blog has also inevitably gotten me to think about my own philosophy. I want to think more about that as well.
and it’s still a little bit of vacation thrown in there too. 😉
