Maps

Maps are systems of understanding. Geographical maps, drawings of engineers, scrapbooks of architects. Mathematics or literature are other systems of discovering, mind-mapping. Just like music, photography, Yoga, but the most important system of finding an orientation was for me: psychology (even ranking high above over medicine) – psychology leads us through the landscape of living, doctors describe how we will leave this world…

Laura Bloomsbury (read her comment below) found the term “mini thought theses” for my efforts to introduce philosophy in few lines – I’ll try to make a list of these posts:

    I like your mini thought theses Frizz – psychology maps out how well we are not living life and points to a way out including all the hurdles to the exit!
    p.s. to find a new thought is to find Nietzsche

  4. Yes! There are many kinds of maps. I love them – that’s a handsome one you posted. It makes sense that a psychological map was most helpful to you. I like that one too!
