8 weeks to wisdom
Out of the blue, I have enrolled in an 8 week philosophy course. My only experience with philosophy was a semester of the subject during my psychology studies. My lecturer was a Freud hating, pro-behaviourism Nazi, so that kind of spoiled it for me. That said, I was keen to give it another go because I think I over-think things too much, and I thought that philosophy might reduce this annoying tendancy (or possibly exacerbate it...hmmm).
So, I had my first class last night and we already ahve homework. In case anyone is interested, the "homework" is as follows:
When faced with any decision / conundrum / dilemma during the week, I need to ask myself "What would a wise person do here now?"
Quite empowering, isn't it? Will let you all know whether this question transforms my life and leads me down the path of eternal happiness.
