It’s the New Year. Let’s talk philosophy. Every- one else is doing resolutions & dieting. We’ll talk philosophy. Someone said that philosophers go down deeper, stay down longer, & come up drier than anyone else. We don’t have to go too deep or stay too long or be too dry. But a little philosophy in January could make a big difference for the whole year. How?
One philosophy professor said that throughout history & all around the world the key questions pondered by philosophers are 1) who is truly well off? 2) what is a truly good person? & 3) how does one become a truly good person?
I used to canoe in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in northern Minnesota. Some of those big lakes would get rather windy. & sometimes we would hit those lakes having coming out of river running. River canoes tend not to have keels so you don’t snag the rocks in the rapids. But when you hit a big lake with wind, no keel means you get pushed along the surface by the wind. How many times in the wind I wished I had a keel.
Answering the three questions of philosophy is a way of putting a keel on the canoe of our life so that we can set our own course rather than just ending up where the wind sends us. So take a walk here in January & about these questions think deep, a little while, & come up not dry but with some answers. They, you will  nd, will become guidance for your life in 2018. That’s how a little philosophy now can make a big difference for a whole year.
Of course, you may want to read a little bit about how others have answered those questions. Turn to the great religious texts of the world to see. Maybe you’ve read, for example, the Bible. How about reading it in a different way, looking for how it answers these questions.
Blessings to you in 2018. SS
