What a fascinating life, and a Buddhist monk son too. Do philospher's blog?

He was quite a character, although the only book of his I've read is called 'How Democracies Perish' which had sinister looking photographs of Hatton, Kinnock and someone else on the cover.

Do philosopher's blog?

Ms Seymour, I would appear to be deceased proof that we most certainly do.  



Blogger Croydonian said... 9:57 pm

Indeed your grace does. I imagine Wittgenstein's blog would be rather less diverting....
