Philosophy as an Art of Life is all thinking´s essence, which is to go beyond all thought and feeling.
It is, as Plotin said, the thinking´s journey back to its own Source.
Not until then philosophy is a movement into the unknown.
To meditate is a voyage of discovery into the known, into your own perspective and history, into the whole of your world of ideas, knowledge, faith and experience, and through discrimination, to be released from it, and thereby to enter into the unknown, into the Source of wisdom.
On this journey you are in company with Odysseus, Dante and Faust.
