Philosophy

Commentary in the form of monthly diary, short stories and essays or blogs on philosophical issues. Most of the ideas are Anton’s, reflections and thoughts that came more or less spontaneously, while others seemed more persistent. The format of most philosophical writings was inspired by the ways Romanian twentieth century thinker, Emil Cioran, explored his ideas: through some sort of diary of ideas.
