The Reflective Commons

Hello

To educate educators!
But the first ones
must educate themselves!
And for these I write.

Nietzsche[1]

Here's a worksite for persons educating themselves.

Let's question, think, and work together:

  • How can and should we form ourselves?
  • Why should we engage in self-educating?
  • How can we interact together to further our self-cultivation?
  • What impediments and distractions should we avoid?
  • What resources will help us learn liberally and form ourselves as we seek to do?

We are just beginning this worksite. What's here sketches it. Look it over. If you want, request an account and start, big or small. Everything needs doing.
