Here are some strong reasons to be educated.
First, without education, your very world is smaller and lower-resolution.
Second, without education, you can’t explain why experts might be quite wrong.
Third, without education, you can’t tell the difference true things from counterfeit things, true authority, from a counterfeit authority, true wisdom, from folly.
Where do you get an education? It has never been easier. Never has there been easier access to knowledge and wisdom than now. I’m not talking about spending your time and money at a University. In fact, there are legitimate questions about whether college is even an effective route to education.
Viewed from a different vantage, simply, a true education will transform you, and it will allow you to see the world differently, and do things differently.

I am a philosopher that is interested in what makes life worth living, what is worth pursuing, and how we can learn from the past. I believe that good philosophy benefits everyone and that there should be philosophers that present philosophy to those outside of the academy.
