I read a lot this year. Probably too much. I also wrote a lot. Writing is therapeutic for me. One quote I came across this year sums up my position this year–and probably for years to come. It’s from Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s Emile:
I am not a great philosopher, and I care little to be one. But I sometimes have good sense, and I always love the truth.
This year, with the release of my book, I said my farewell to philosophy and academia.
