@cj420weeks, Myself of course. I mean, yeah, I am influenced by the likes of Plato, Aristotle, and Einstein(though he was nota philosopher but he had his own revolutionary ideas which to me are philosophies) but I do not take full control or action into them, I am passionate in these ideals but I go with the vague idea and expand it all in to one collected idea and form my own.
Through all the truths in the world and proven mysteries it is only YOU that can unfold your inner truth in the depths of the soul. We also come to realize that we all share something in common with the greats; we were once related in forms of ancestory and the Tree of life. Be your own philospher=)
I’m well aware he does was not known to be regarded by such a title (he was known for spending 14 years of his life writing a 1 and a quarter million word novel while in a narrow bed), but MARCEL PROUST definitely wins it for me. i have read about almost all of the philosophers spoken of here (besides for some divine misfortune Nietsche) and Proust is definitely someone who has made done quite a lot for me in terms of philosophical reasoning. i would elaborate, but i would just prefer to suggest a book ‘how Proust can change your life’ by Alain De Botton, which i have read almost three times now! i seriously recommend it. Alain is also a brilliant writer.
if anyone would like me to chuck up summary then holla!
