Are You Sure? Really?

Philo means “love” or “friendship.” It comes from the Greek verb “philein.”

Sophia means “wisdom,” “learning,” and “knowledge.”

Historians think the philosopher Pythagoras (the guy who developed the theorem about right triangles) was the originator of the combination, “Philosophy” . . . a friend of wisdom.

I think we would be better all around if we were more philosophical. A warm friendship with inquiry, learning, questioning, consideration, research, thoughtfulness, and openness is a powerful antidote to the toxic grip of noisy certainty.
