Philosophical P(r)ose

Philosophic contemplations (updated quotes May 16, 2019)

Keep your face towards the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you.
 — Walt Whitman

Just as the philosophical prose can be poetic, so too, does the poetic wax philosophic. Each piece of writing shared on this publication has the intertwining flavour of prose, philosophy, poetry and commentary. Sharing this, we have the opportunity to reflect, a little differently, bringing more inspiration and enlightenment to our journey.

Philosophical exploration starts with a question. When intentionally contemplated, we can find alternative resolutions and meaning-making on our life paths.

In the ART Matrix publication, under this Philosophical Prose tab, you will find the evolving collection of articles, commentary and prose. This leans closer to the philosophic than the poetic.

Philosophy takes us on the contemplative dig into knowledge for deeper understandings of life and mind.

This is a quest to bring greater knowledge, awareness and order to some cognitive dissonance, inherent in human existence. Some of the writing, shared below, may also be shared across different different Medium for whom I have great respect and gratitude. Thank you for visiting, reading and for your valuable contributions to our wonderful writing community!
