About the Book

Is philosophy just the thoughts of a few men who lived long ago? Not really. Each of us develops our own opinions about life, and this is philosophy. Most of us don’t take the time to write down these thoughts. Some people find it interesting to read the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius Antoninus, an emperor of ancient Rome. This book provides the thoughts of a citizen in twentieth century United States of America.

About the Author

The United States of America provided me with an excellent education – a BS in Engineering Mathematics at UC Berkeley and a MS in Industrial Engineering at Stanford. This was followed by ten years of work as an Industrial Engineer for half a dozen different employers who did not appreciate my independence. Thereafter I paid my rent by doing legal process serving. Eventually I was able to reclaim some utility from my educational degrees by teaching mathematics at community colleges. A couple of years ago I retired. Obviously this is not the expected background for an author of philosophical essays.
