Everyday wisdom

"Philosophy is at its most engaged when it is impure. What is being recovered from the Ancient Greek model is not some lost idea of philosophy's pure essence, but the idea that philosophy is mixed up with everything else. The challenge for those who champion philosophy's usefulness is to show how it can fit in with the rest of life, not stand as master over it."
