I took a single semester of Philosophy in college, a course on ethics. While I don’t regret that I never majored in Philosophy, I do wish I had retained a little more of what I learned in that course. Partly because it’s interesting to me, but even more so because it keeps popping up as a potential storyline. Not just an overarching theme–ethics in this modern world–but philosphy is nosing its way in as plot, as characters: philosophers doing things on pages of a book. Philosophise is an action word. Something is brewing, perhaps. But it will require some of that research that I so dread.
