Mindblown: a blog about philosophy.

  • Important Lesson

    This week I want to discuss what the most important thing I have learned throughout this term is. In my opinion, the most important lesson was not one specific week of focus but a common theme throughout the course, which is to know yourself. This may seem rather trivial, however, it has come up in […]
