Benjamin de Vries
I am a twenty year old philosopher from the Netherlands, currently exploring Europe with my girl and our buddy the Volkswagen, who is older than us both. This journey provides me with new perspectives on society, luxury, purpose and life itself. But more importantly, it inspires me daily, energizing my mind with fresh philosophical ideas, especially in the experiential branch. My young age and relative lack of establishment allow me to approach ideas with a clear and open mind, one that is free of many common assumptions, which tend to slow down the philosophical advancement of humanity. Flow is one of my guiding principles, one without which nothing substantial can manifest on the page. And I mean that literally, as I do my thinking with notebook and fountain pen.
