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.

    • Ever since I joined the online course, I’ve developed an interest in Philosophy,When I was very young one of my uncles suggested I should study Philosophy,I didn’t but now I wish I had.Anthropology is a good subject.
      Thank you for your comment.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post. I believe this deep desire in us to know comes from a very special place.

    All good wishes,
