You don’t have to be concerned about global literacy and poor attention span of an average individual. But you should be concerned about your own free will.

What are the crucial skills of a thriving individual? Self-management? Emotional intelligence? Perhaps certain leadership skills? Creativity? Of course.

But what enables them?

Not that we don’t wish you (or anyone) happiness. Not that we aren’t fond of kitsch and useless, frivolous sentimentality. After all, that’s what opera is all about. But you know, it’s 2017, and it’s about time we took deconstruction seriously, lest it…

"Attachment parenting has nothing to do with anti-intellectualism. On the contrary, the enlightenment that we have here is purely intellectual. As a mother and an intellectual, I refuse to follow so-called experts and I do “shun developments such as sleep training” because I am knowledgeable enough to see that sleep training is not a development. I choose not to follow “experts” like Ferber and such because I know that his approach is not scientifically proven to be good or even harmless for babies."
What Is Wrong About Attachment Parenting?

When people Google the term “attachment parenting”, several responses surface, which include ‘why it is wrong’, ‘why they shouldn’t do it’, and ‘how to beat an attachment parent in a debate’.
I decided to follow the clues in order to find out the arguments against attachment parenting.

“If you haven’t seen Athens, you’re a stump.
If you’ve seen it unamazed, you’re a donkey.
If after being charmed by it you leave, you’re an ass.”
- Lysippus

εἰ δὲ τεθέασαι μὴ τεθήρευσαι δ᾿, ὄνος,
εἰ δ᾿ εὐαρεστῶν αποτρέχεις, κανθήλιος

"One of the myths about creative writing courses is that students go there to learn how to write. Such learning, when and if it takes place, is a felicitous by-product that may or may not have to do with the teaching; the process of settling down to write for a year would very probably yield results even without teachers. No, the student goes to the course to show himself to teachers who as writers are well placed (he imagines!) to help him present himself to the publishers. Most creative writing courses now offer classes on approaching agents and publishers and promoting one’s work. In short, preparing for the job."

The purpose of this novel is not to tell the story. The plot is not the most important, neither are the characters. Those are devices too. The plot and characters are here to catch our attention, to make us emotionally engaged and force us to keep reading, but what we are reading is more than that. It is an eye-opening literary-philosophical masterpiece.
