  • Areas of interest: Ancient philosophy, Nietzsche, and environmental philosophy
  • Reason(s) for studying philosophy: So that I may learn how to bring about the life of Nietzsche's "Overman"
    and Plato's "Philosopher King".  In Plato's discussion of the "Good Life" and Nietzsche's explanation of the Overman and his "original relationship with nature," I see the need for and the foundation of an environmentally-conscious society focused around clean energy and local, organic food production.  I am studying these two areas of philosophy specifically so that I may one day help to further the development of the environmental movement.
