Why read about a great thinker on Wikipedia when you can skip the middle man and go straight to the source?
It was once clearly understood that reading the original writings of a great mind is infinitely more powerful than simply reading an “expert’s opinion” about that mind. Developing this habit may not seem very important at first glance, but the intellectual laziness of seeking an expert’s opinions about ideas rather than generating our own through a genuine act of discovery, not only creates a false belief in knowledge, but also a tragic diminution of creative insight on the part of the practitioner of lazy reason.
The Rising Tide Foundation is thus proud to present an array of original writings from great thinkers who’s lives were devoted in thought and practice to the betterment of humanity.
