Looking for good philosophical discussions, but specifically what led me here is that I cannot find the solution to a very simple problem. Precisely, my memory.

While I was studying philosophy, a professor mentioned that one philosopher had tried (or maybe succeeded) in courting his wife by writing her everything about himself, including the awful bits, so that she may "really know him."

The problem is, I cannot recall who this philosopher is!

Anyhow, yes, I graduated (undergraduate) in philosophy, but still continue to love and live it. Hi all!

@boggeyb,
Was this a reply to my introduction? I'm quite confused by this post.

Ha, consider it a blessing and that little tidbit was in no way any of your business if it did indeed happen. If it was a story to prove a point of the extremes people will go to in creating sympathy for themselves, then, very loosely, perhaps? Either way you did remember the story. Isn't that the point anyway? That's the "im"moral to the story, ha!:perplexed:

@boggeyb,
Problem is, I'm trying to use the specific story in a bit of writing that I'm doing.
