Peter Kreeft On Philosophy

“Philosophy is not confined to philosophers, thank God.  Everyone has a philosophy.  As Cicero famously said, you have no choice between having a philosophy and not having one, only between having a good one and having a bad one.  And not to admit that you have a philosophy at all is to have a bad one. For it is one that does not know itself. So how could it know anything else, especially us?”- Peter Kreeft in The Philosophy of Tolkien

I thought it was important to post this quote. It made me think of the importance of assessing our beliefs and philosophy and try our best to get down to the truth. Every human by nature of being a rational animal has the natural tendency to want to know and to seek truth. After all, the end of our rational faculties is to find truth.

      I don’t own it either! That was a quote from the preview I have 😛 But I definitely want to buy it too. It’s only about 6 bucks used. So, us poor philosophers can pick up a copy 🙂

      Oh, thank you for that! I will definitely check out this link.
