The Uses of Philosophy For Living
I stole this title from a lesser-known work by Nietzsche called The Uses of History for Life. Philosophy, while having many possible uses, should be aimed primarily at helping us live better. In this series, I apply various philosophical approaches to understanding the challenges all humans face. Appealing to the thoughts and techniques of thinkers throughout history, I hope to provide some pointers and tools that can be applied to help us in our day to day existence.
