They can take care of what you said, but they will never forget the way how made them feel. Carl B. dedicated to: Antonio Corrales. Rector of the UAS; who years ago gave me intellectual shelter. To be preparing some notes for a philosophical publication, I noticed two things: first, that in most of my articles I am speaking in the first person and with a somewhat anecdotal literary thread. That makes me reflect to what extent give valuable content. Secondly, although I have noticed that discursive tendency, I applied each time with greater responsibility intellectual prudence. I recall that student stage at the Faculty of philosophy and it causes me some humour.
It’s amazing how when you are young falls in the clutches of the intellectual euphoria: remember how argued with other colleagues about such or which topic in a way not so academic. Everyone in the school knew everything. More humanist dialectic existed intellectual ego. In particular, I fell into that State of unbridled passion because it began to find answers to many of my concerns. And therefore, I began to find a meaning to life. The new world in which I was was inexhaustible. So are the humanities.
Even though it has also fallen into the trend of specialization. I therefore say that with the passage of the years I was taking a greater awareness of my intellectual attitude and spent on the discursive and argumentative stage to a philosophical exercise reflective and contemplative. The result of this is that my spiritual quest has been more specific and selective. Of course, my existential needs are others. And although I try to pawn the promise to talk less with the words and more with her actions, I must admit that in the majority of cases I’ve failed. And not because (is that not appeal to a self-deception, would), an act of presumption. Is due simply to that fascinates me to talk (and make it if it arises there a monologue is because they are known to the other person in silence), since that reframes my thoughts. To paraphrase Descartes I would say: I think, therefore I am talking about. And this last means for my transmit my knowledge, my wisdom. Finally what all this is about is processing my philosophical knowledge to a spiritual search that is applicable in our everyday life and although it is a great challenge to think. More exhausting (and even painful), will be recognizing our spirit. In fact it is the part of being less that we serve. The goodness of these spiritual articles is the fact that philosophically will not be of an academic tessitura, rather the intention is that is inspiring. More than a self-help section (regardless of whether the editorial guidelines permit), it is a spiritual exercise. Thereby we will understand and apply transcendental concepts that we as human beings at some point in our lives. Let us remember that these items will be inspirational and also applicable to our daily lives. So this will answer the question of: philosophy for what? Simply to learn how to live. Live help. And knowing it once, the philosopher inspires reflection, the philosopher teaches to live. The philosopher is a human being.
