Philosophy Is for Everyone

By Colin Burgess “Philosophy is everybody’s business.” – J. Mortimer Adler. Aristotle opened his opus on philosophy, The Metaphysics, with, “All men by nature desire to know.” Nothing could be truer; when one begins to ask the ‘why’ questions, one is taking intellectual responsibility for constructing their weltanschauung, or worldview.
