365 Writing Prompts: Back to school
If you could take a break from your life and go back to school to master a subject, what would it be?
If I did get the opportunity to go back to school I’d like to study Philosophy. My interest is in Metaphysics.
We all by nature have a desire to know. The indication of this is the delight we take in our senses; apart from them being useful they are loved for themselves; and above all others is the sense of sight.Even when we are not going to do anything , we prefer seeing. The reason this, most of all the senses , it brings to light many different things.
We do not regard any of these senses as wisdom; yet they do give the most authoritative knowledge of particulars. They do not tell us ‘why’ of anything— such as why is fire hot; they only say it is hot.These and many other questions that I have will help me learn if I invest some time in this subject.
