"Why You Should Read And Write Poetry"

Why? Emotions, language, imagination.

Philosophical skepticism is a problem that must be solved, not a position that can be maintained indefinitely.

That said, I think the author conflates skepticism with relativism, which is not quite fair. While skepticism, untreated, can lead to radical relativism, I think a conscientious skeptic can accept the possibility of objective truth.

Imho.
