After reading On the Origin of Species by Charles Darwin, I have a clear picture of the magnitude of this work, and the challenge it must have been to make this argument when so many explained the existence of so many species on Earth as part of a ‘plan of creation’. It’s well worth reading if you have any interest in biology.
I’ve been searching for meaning in my life, and this has led me to a pursuit of my purpose. I found in reading and studying about Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics that the secret to a happy life may be a life of virtue. This post thinks through Aristotle’s logic to get me to some clarity about how I lead a happy life.
After reading The Black Calhouns I wanted to list all the violations of Constitutional rights that have been brought upon blacks since the end of the Civil War. My list ends around the approval of the Civil Rights Act of 1965, but blacks continue to experience racist behavior, lynchings, police killings, etc. I want to communicate why we must act to make amends and give restitution.
