What is your background in philosophy?

I have very little formal background in philosophy, except to the extent that I studied it as part of my French literary studies, so questions having to do with aesthetics, what makes something ( a work of art) beautiful, how does one define the "beautiful", what creates sublimity, etc. I have also read selected works by philospophers on my own, particularly Plato, Spinoza, Nietzche, Heidegger, Lao Tzu, Chuang Tzu and Indian philosophy.

What makes you want to join a philosophy discussion group?

I'm getting more and more interested in philosophy as a kind of abstract food for my poetic work.

Introduction

Hi, I'm a writer/translator/po­et. I have grown up partly in Paris (France) and partly in Toronto. I have a B.A. in French Literature and I'm currently doing an M.A. in Translation Theory.
