The Doors of Philosophy

Doors are the first threshold into life.

We are always between doors; either indoors or outdoors.

The Romans worshipped doors because they knew that, like life, they look both ways: to the past and to the future.

The philosopher is also in a sense a door: a door from the false to the true; from akrasia to sophia.

The door is the true symbol of philosophy
