Thoughts, experiences and perceptions

"Philosophy estranges us from the familiar not by supplying new information but by inviting and provoking a new way of seeing… once the familiar turns strange, it's never quite the same again. Self-knowledge is like lost innocence, however unsettling you find it, it can never be unthought or unknown. What makes this enterprise difficult but also riveting, is that moral and political philosophy is a story and you don't know where this story will lead but what you do know is that the story is about you." (Sandel, 2009)
