Churchill on Philosophy. "Intellectual dynamite"

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Mature Winston Churchill, writing his memoirs on his youthful days reflects on his tardy found desire of academic type knowledge and the wonders and joys he discovered practising philosophy in a Socratic mood, manifesting his view on education, higher and lower. This article also discusses the possible influence of his odd education path on his ability to comprehend political reality in a very different way, allowing him to perceive Hitler’s aims with almost pinpoint accuracy.
