We decide which is right and which is an illusion.

To Think For Yourself

‘A philosopher is a lover of wisdom. It takes tremendous discipline. It takes tremendous courage to think for yourself, to examine yourself. That Socratic imperative requires courage in a way William Butler Yates used to say, ‘It takes more courage to examine the dark corners of your own soul than it does for a soldier to fight on the battlefield.’ Courage to think critically. Courage is the enabling virtue for any philosopher, for any human being in the end. Courage to think, courage to love, courage to hope.’

Dr. Cornel West
American Philospher, Academic, Activist, and Public Intellectual
