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 consequence of such a desire. It takes form through a multitude of ideas that kindled a desire so intense that they had to be written. Arguments which were 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, philosophy and contemporary culture. Please feel free to comment on the past and start a discussion as well as contact me personally with any question.
