An introduction to the Empathic Rationalist blog
Empathic Rationalist received its name from the creed that the characters in my first book, The Creed Room, identified as their philosophy of life. The idea for a blog originated with that book’s publisher, and back then, I posted at least twice a week. However, as I became busier and busier on other matters, I settled into the pattern of blogging only once a week.
The Empathic Rationalist’s posts address a broad range of topics – geopolitics, religion, philosophy, sports, pop culture, tributes to individuals I have known … the list goes on. What these posts do not address are legal issues. I deal enough with those issues during my day job.
On this page, you will find some of the more popular posts from the archives of the Empathic Rationalist. The blog itself is maintained on a separate site.
