SHP found a great slice of thought from Orion Magazine. It’s well-worth a slow read. I even felt the need for a paper copy [gasp].

Here’s a central question brought up in the piece that we should come back to.

After Heraclitus, philosophy turned away from the practical and aesthetic question, How do we accomplish being in this world? to the metaphysical question, What is truth?
