About

A desire for knowledge is not something to take lightly. It drives us to take great feats, and can bring about considerable changes in our lives. This blog is the symptom of this desire. It takes form through a multitude of ideas which kindled a desire so intense that they had to be written. Arguments which I found to be inspiring and helpful in their capacity to arouse a passion for thinking.

In this blog you will probably run into articles having to do with psychoanalysis, and philosophy, but sometimes also critical articles concerning contemporary culture. Please feel free to comment and start a discussion, as well as contact me personally with any question.
