I was born in Northern Greece in 1957 and lived the most part of my life in Thessalonica, Greece. When I was a child, I was always fascinated by the sayings of the Greek philosophers (Heraclitus, Democritus, Socrates, Aristotle). Later on in my puberty I started reading their writings and I became full of enthusiasm about their reasoning and searching for the underlying truth in all things. This marked my life afterwards. Philosophical searching through many and different schools of reasoning (Marxism, Empiricism, Existentialism, Subjectivism, Phenomenology. Skepticism, Zen Buddhism, Daoism, Rationalism) became a part of my life, along with my studies in Physics and Chemistry. That philosophical searching out led me finally to the thorough studying of Greek philosophy, which has become my inseparable companion. Therefore, I decided to write my book 'Handbook of Greek Philosophy' (http://www.trafford.com/04-2651).
Today, I cannot imagine life without philosophical reflection and reasoning, along with my other activities. Therefore, I am glad that there are other people in the ISFP who also find philosophy significant for their life and we can exchange our thoughts and our concepts.
I am a High School teacher and apart from teaching, reading and writing about philosophy, I like walking in the countryside, swimming, listening to rock ballads and classical music, reading classical literature, studying paintings, and playing chess.
I am divorced with two sons. I spent some years in London and since 2000 I have been living together with my life partner Doris in Meerbusch, a suburb of Düsseldorf, Germany.
I would like to quote some fragments of Greek wisdom, which have been the mottos of my life:
