5 Benefits of Meditation I Didn't Expect (and How They Can Make You Successful) I’m not a meditation teacher. I’m not even a very enthusiastic meditator. I’ve averaged about 20 minutes once a week for the past couple of years, and any serious meditator will tell you that’s not enough to really benefit you. Except it seems like it is, because I’ve noticed some benefits that I can’t attribute to anything else. I’m sure I’d get far more benefit if I meditated more regularly (I’m experimenting quietly with doing that). 5 Benefits of Meditation I Didn't Expect (and How They Can Make You Successful)

40 Belief-Shaking Remarks From a Ruthless Nonconformist If there’s one thing Friedrich Nietzsche did well, it’s obliterate feel-good beliefs people have about themselves. He has been criticized for being a misanthrope, a subvert, a cynic and a pessimist, but I think these assessments are off the mark. I believe he only wanted human beings to be more honest with themselves. He did have a remarkable gift for aphorism — he once declared, “It is my ambition to say in ten sentences what others say in a whole book.” A hundred years after his death, Nietzsche retains his disturbing talent for turning a person’s worldview upside-down with one jarring remark. 40 Belief-Shaking Remarks From a Ruthless Nonconformist
‘The Necessity of Transcendental Philosophy’ ‘The Necessity of Transcendental Philosophy’ Transcendental philosophy, in the context of the philosophy of mind, is the attempt to account for the conditions of possibility of states of understanding. By ‘states of understanding’ I mean all the ways in which subjects can make sense of things – cognition, perception, emotions, the imagination, and acts and attitudes of valuing. I will outline the questions a transcendental philosophy must address, and argue that any complete theory of the subject or of the mind must answer these questions; therefore, any complete theory of the mind must be, in part, a transcendental theory. I will conclude by drawing out the implications of this claim for the project of naturalizing states of understanding.
