personal philosophy

Originally dated 15th March, 2020, I had this entry lying around without any substantial progress. In fact it was empty. By ancillary I mean amusements which you can understand and appreciate but which don't drive your actions in the main. I am not sure what I wanted to write or think about here but I believe it was an attempt to understand which values we consider ancillary and when they overcome the primaries.

Recently I saw a piece on aspiration by Agnes Callard. Ideas from there provide a more structured way of thinking about this topic now. The theme of my thoughts is now switched to the hows, involving the process of shift of priorities, a lot of which involve deliberate (at times accidental) aspirations.
