philosopher and writer
The key challenge for philosophy in the 21st century is to rid itself of phony French nonsense of the Derrida, Deleuze, Badiou variety, to re-establish contact with the cultural and artistic traditions of our civilization, and to engage with the intellectual questions that really matter, concerning the nature and destiny of man.
In the next 18 years, society (i.e. Western society) should be addressing the issues of faith (whether, which and why), sex (whether, when and why not), food (what, why and where from), and children (whose and how many). If those questions are not addressed Western society will either die out or be Islamised: and which of those two fates is worse is also an issue that we should be addressing.
