I'm working on an adaptation, or new rendering, of the ideas of the ancient Roman
philosopher Seneca (as I read them). On my Stoic
letters blog, I'm writing a post (in order) for each of his Epistulae morales ad Lucilium
('Letters to Lucilius about Ethics'), taking up one or two points from the letter each time.
I recently started collecting ideas and materials for a Phenomenology of the Unreal. In this journal, casual observation, careful analysis and wild speculation will
hopefully add up to some interesting picture of what a phenomenology of
unreality might look like. Perhaps I will, at some later time, put the various
strands of thought together and forge them into a more systematic and
comprehensively structured text. (But I haven't plans for that at the moment.)
I'm a member of Toastmasters International,
Karlsruhe Toastmasters club. I have reached the Advanced Communicator Silver (ACS) and Competent Leader (CL) levels and am now
working towards Advanced Communicator Gold (ACG) and Advanced Leader Bronze (ALB). I'm also currently serving as the president of my club.
