Thinking About Thinking

On my current list of Things To Do Before I Die there are two university courses I want to do - a degree in each of philosophy and English lit.

Now the cost of higher education is prohibitive at the best of times - not to mention these courses would just be hobbies. Oh and I live in a regional area so I would assume that they wouldn't be available locally.

Anyway, on my fabulous Radio National they have a program called "The Philosophers Zone" and it has just occurred to me - why don't I just go out and learn philosophy! Okay a uni course would be a great structure but I have a new 'thought' each week (thank you Alan Saunders) - which is researched and argued comprehensively. I could take that, do some extra reading, find some like minded people and .... well I have the rest of my life :-)

So if you ever want to chat about thinking about thinking, then I am your girl :-)
