Exploration

While I was in Hong Kong during the March vacation, I was finishing up my reading of Lou Marinoff's Plato, Not Prozac!

A friend had suggested earlier that I write something about the joy of travelling. It so happens that the book has this quotation:

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

 

– T.S. Elliot, Little Gidding

But while the image (and an insightful image at that) is of exploration of the spatial nature, what I read from the bit of poetry in the context of Marinoff's primer on philosophy (and philosophical counselling; it's a good read, by the way) is the matter of gaining self knowledge through learning about the worldviews of other people. 🙂
