Accidental Union

Philosopher as trailblazer versus adventurer. Is it more important to have the adventure of philosophy - of finding new values and comprimises, or to have them? Do we seek to inspire others to their own spot in the woods, or to build new clearings? One focuses on and draws inspiration from our values, using them as the actual goal in writing and improving ourself by and in their light. The other seeks simply to inspire others. One can be, and often aims to be, made into a global system for society. The other may lead to its ultimate romantic destruction. Either could be very pretty and worthwhile. Nietzsche dances on this.. "The Creator seeks companions, not followers or believers. Fellow harvesters.." but we may choose another dance.
