  • Hi Tom. Like yourself I have made repeated attempts to fully grasp TPOF. This time I have decided to read it with the intent of memorizing the key points (using Giordano Bruno memory techniques). This is proving particularly fruitful as I am see connections that I never saw before. This led me to look more carefully at your "study guide". I find the 1+12 headings that you add to each chapter also useful as a means of digesting the content. However, I have tried to link your headings to the mood + worldview and this is where it breaks down for me. I see no connection between the content and the mood + worldview. Do you have any further material that might enable me to understand how you link the headings to the various moods / worldviews?
    • To recognize the connection between TPOF text and worldview requires a very good reading comprehension of the text and a good sense of the worldview. If you can see the first 4 views of a chapter .1 thru .4, materialism, spiritism, realism, and idealism you have a chance of seeing the others. In chapter 2, Desire For Knowledge, TPOF text even identifies the first 4 worldviews. If you can't see the worldviews, the chapter breakdown into topic headings can still be useful. That is the thing that helps study. A person can see many different views in a paragraph so sometimes it is not easy to see the overall view that stands out in relation to the other views in that chapter. I think it takes a certain fluidity of thinking, not to say it is not distinct, but it is relative to the other views and modified by the chapter mood.
  • An interested Libertarian observer at present: an incredible book and even more outstanding world figure and look forward to your lecture and the opportunity for comment.
