Christopher Phillips has been promoting Socratic thought and organizing informal gatherings of philosophical inquiry for some time now. He first started gaining recognition back in 1998, before Opensewer even started, and since then has toured the country promoting “philosophy for the common man,” and written a book. His cause is similar to (though not exactly the same as) ours, and we greatly admire his efforts. You really must respect someone who decides to uproot himself and do this kind of thing full-time. Opensewer still operates “in the margins”—in the stolen moments that aren’t dedicated to life’s other necessary and unnecessary endeavors.

Whether you join an OS gathering, a Socrates CafĂ©, or delve into the meaning of things on your own, time spent looking inward is time well spent. Take a long, hard look at Christopher’s very well put together website,
