Join Topi Heikkerö to explore how to think more independently.
In this salon, we get together to take the next step in liberating our own thinking. We’ll read Schopenhauer’s short essay on the subject, the host will share his strategies, in conversation participants can share their breakthroughs and insights on how to think for oneself. “Thinking for oneself” refers to thinking that is free, clear and can genuinely help us make sense of life and live more satisfying lives. — This is not always easy: upbringing, authorities, education, and the temptation to mimic great thinkers are some of the obstacles.
“There are plenty of ideas that are of value to the man who thinks them; but of them only a few have the power to act through repercussion or reflection, that is to gain the reader’s interest after they have been written down.” Schopenhauer, §269.
