How To Become A Philosopher In Two Basic Steps

If you would be a philosopher in the mode of an Aristotle, there may be a shortcut….two simple yet actually complex “tests:” (1) study the way drivers react at a busy intersection without any lights…they start reasonably waiting for one another to cross, but then let something go wrong and it will trigger a fury of annoyed, honking people (2) study the way people have this habit of looking up at the sky, and the flights of birds…from the Greeks to DaVinci to the Wright Brothers, humanity has intuitively believed there is
something more to them and to their world….once you have thoroughly studied these two situations, you have taken your first step in becoming a philosopher!
