Welcome to Open Door Philosophy! Open Door Philosophy

We believe that if you employ the tools associated with philosophical activity, it can give you clarity about yourself and a greater appreciation for the world around you. So be sure and stop by every other Tuesday as we conversationally discuss all kinds of topics as we fill our philosophical tool boxes with the equipment necessary to live a good life.

If you have a philosophically oriented quote you’d like us to review (we promise to be ruthless) or have any question/comments, please email us at

You can follow all the philosophy on Twitter and on Instagram at Open Door Philosophy.
