Life as an Extreme Sport

Ayn Rand, Craigslist, Philosophy

Laurie passes on beautiful post from the “best of Craigslist”, which includes this gem of a sentence:

It was only when you went on to explain to me that it is only now, through Ayn Rand, that philosophy has started to be “taken seriously as a science” and is no longer “useless,” that I really began to regret this missed opportunity to engage in discussion.

Personally, I think I’ll skip trying to sell people on the idea that Ayn Rand is the only thing/person that makes philosophy useful. I like having all my limbs, for one thing…
