Philosophy: A Wasted Life

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 25, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

In one of the last interviews the philosopher Richard Dworkin (1913 – 2013) gave, he was asked what is wrong with a person spending their entire life collecting matchboxes. His answer was that such a hobby is not a real challenge, it is trivial, the result is only a collection of matchboxes. He goes on […]

Dangerous Discussion Points And Questions

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 19, 2015 in News & Opinion |

We live in Politically Correct times, not as bad, perhaps, as they were a few years ago, but still times which cause many people to think before the speak or regret the simplest of things said. It is a time when we should be asking ourselves questions, re-evaluating what we know and do not know, […]

Biography: The Most Important Attributes

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 28, 2015 in Publishing |

I grabbed my usual copy of Philosophie Magazin from the kiosk while waiting for the bus and leafed through it with great expectations. The June / July issue is about food, and food, while not something I write about a great deal, is one of my interests. It is fair to say that I, along […]

Review: Parmenides

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 7, 2013 in Articles and Reviews |

Plato’s work Parmenides has been rated by some as a spoof, a less-than-serious work, a work filled with contradictions and errors. This it may well be, but it is also a fascinating account, an experiment in the art of the philosopher and discussion to prove a point. In essence it attempts to prove the existence […]

On A More Serious Note.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 26, 2010 in Personal |

Quite a few people have commented that my writing seems to be far too mature for a person of my age, comparing me presumably with other eighteen year old women they have met or heard about. It is hard to make any satisfactory reply to such a generalization other than to say that we are […]
