Are You a Philosopher or a Filing Cabinet?

Benjamin Idzik at Intercollegiate Review
"knowledge, like the universe which it represents, cannot be divided. Philosophy is the great connector, uniting all the specialized and particular sciences. Noted thinker Daniel Sullivan summarized the philosopher’s role as 'seek[ing] to view the whole of reality in a single and comprehensive glance, to organize all aspects of [it] into a unified world view.'

"This shouldn’t only be the goal of the philosopher—it should also be our goal."
