“Never bend your head. Hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye.”
           Helen Keller


Philosophy brings self-assertiveness


The eyes are the window to the soul. By looking the world straight in the eye, we are able to share ourselves as we truly are. This is what self-assertiveness is. It is to share ourselves authentically, to affirm who we aspire to be and to take action so that the vision of ourselves becomes a reality.
To assert ourselves is to be honest, to say what we really think, to have the confidence to be the unique individuals we really are. It is to hold our head high, to be proud of ourselves and to not back down in the face of doubt or criticism from others.
Essentially, as for many words beginning with "self", the key notion is the Self. Knowing the Self, one's true identity, brings Self-Assertiveness.
Philosophy "in the classical manner" is the path leading to the knowledge of the Self.


Helen Keller overcame considerable limitations to live a full life in the service of others.
