PhilosophyPrimer.net is intended to be an exercise in the careful but basic explanation of philosophical issues, concepts, and their relevance to our everyday lives as human beings. “Philosophy,” as the term is meant here, refers back to the original ancient Greek meaning of “the love of wisdom.” Issues are not discussed for their own sake but because they hold some importance for us living better lives.
As such, PhilosophyPrimer.net is a website not for those who are seeking to one day be professional philosophers but for those who think that doing philosophy is somehow still important whatever your career happens to be. Thinking, reflection, wonder … these are a part of what it means to be human! Watch for posts that explain in very basic ways how to think creatively and intelligently about the meaning of life, right and wrong, religion, the soul, and freewill.
