Close Reading Hunter S. Thompson’s ‘Ninth Path’ Letter

February 3, 2021 at 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected

Fellow Interintellect Russell Max Simon invites you to discuss the “Ninth Path” and how it may be used for understanding personal narratives

… beware of looking for goals: look for a way of life.

Decide how you want to live and then see what you can do to make a living WITHIN that way of life.”

“A young Hunter S. Thompson once wrote that if you can’t see any real purpose in the paths laid before you, well then you MUST FIND A NINTH PATH.

The letter is an inspiration for those trying to make sense of their personal journey — but are there dangers to such a close embrace of the life path metaphor?

As we humans engage in sense-making and write personal narrative, what can we learn from Thompson’s letter, and where might we be misled by embracing his advice to find a Ninth Path.” – Salon Host Russell Max Simon
