How will you look for it … when you do not know at all what it is? How will you aim to search for something you do not know at all? If you should meet with it, how will you know that this is the thing that you did not know?
As readers know, I started my PhD program last year at the University of Miami. As the academic calendar approaches once again, I’ve decided to take a step back from the Electric Agora to focus on my formal studies. It has been a real pleasure working on and writing for the Electric Agora, and I hope to join you all again in due time, once I’ve developed further as a philosopher.
This decision is a difficult one, but I’ve recently been reminded what a PhD program is supposed to be: a space to train and develop as a thinker, individual, and philosopher, under expert guidance,. I’ll certainly continue to follow EA and look forward to seeing how it develops over the years. I want to thank all of the contributors who have tirelessly written for this outlet, for it wouldn’t be where it is without you. And of course I would be remiss to not give a special thank you to editor, co-founder, friend, and mentor Dan Kaufman, who patiently helped to cultivate my writing, thinking, and passion for philosophy, not to mention taking on an incredible workload to keep this site running for free and with rich content.
Hopefully once my studies have completed, or as they near completion, I’ll return to the Agora to converse in digital space with all of you once again.
