Sapere aude! (or "dare to think!")

Why this blog? Do I consider myself equal to Emmanuel Kant? No, but his credo "dare to think" is more actual than ever. To many people just follow a consensus opinion. This complex and fast developing society requires from his actors (me and you) to be informed, critical, analytical and rational. However, never was the number of people acting according to these four principles so low. The housing-bubble and subsequent economic crisis can be seen as a proof of this statement. In this blog I will make some reflections within certain areas of interest (economics, technology, politics) in the spirit of Descartes & Kant.

2 opmerkingen:

  1. Toch niet geïnspireerd door het nieuwe motto van onze Alma Mater? Of hang je eerder de originele versie van Kant aan...

  2. Het origineel is altijd beter dan de kopie of op zijn minst toch "origineler" ;-)
