I never studied philosophy on a formal basis, all my formal education having been British-based, where you opt to specialize in ‘Science’ or ‘Arts’ around the age of 15. Since I opted for ‘Science’, I ended up with a B.Sc. (Hons) in 1974 & M.Sc. (with Distinction) in 1979, without ever having studied any ‘Arts’.

However, in 2002, I wrote a paper on philosophy, focused on Nietzsche, for a ‘friend’. I did it in a couple of hours using her textbook and some quick Web research. I found it fairly easy to ‘crack him’. She got an ‘A’ for that paper. That cracked me up. Philosophy can’t be that hard!


Come on. Nietzsche. Sounds like a butter. Smile. He would want you to.
