Twenty-one years later

When I first discovered the Philosophy of Freedom in 1989 at Rudolf Steiner College I recognized it as the most book for our age but also a book that was either already or on the verge of being lost to history. The next year I began a quest to try and find a way to make it more widely known. Twenty-one years later I think my newest cartoons will make the fundamental ideas available to anyone interested.

This is such good stuff Tom

Just wanted to say hi and keep up the good work!


Are you going to self

Are you going to self publish these?

I looked into

I looked into self-publishing and the cost for a real book would be more than people would pay (maybe $50 to publish without profit). The good thing about comics is that you can read them online without the reader uncomfortableness of reading a book online.

The interest in the comics will grow when I have the whole book done. A few chapters won't matter much, but having the whole book done should start people telling other people.

Experts say you need to present a story. My earlier attempts at a story were distracting to the book content. But by using the world-outlook characters POF becomes a story while remaining within the text, so no extra fluff is added. The book also becomes a psychology book as you can study the 12 thinking personality types.

great stuff

I love this, Tom. I could show this to my step-son, a Physics postgraduate student, and he might have time to read it! I'm wondering if he'll recognise himself under 'Mathematist'...

Recognizing yourself as one

Recognizing yourself as one of the 12 characters is one of the values of the POF 12 view structure. In a sense, Steiner is counciling 12 people in each chapter with insight just for them.
