Karene contemplating all the work she has done on the Philosophy Shop!ABOUT YOUR SHOP KEEPER: KARENE HOWIE
My partner (philosopher Geoff Haselhurst) and I are building a large philosophy website which is the source (and inspiration) for most of the Philosophy images and quotes in this shop.
We believe that Philosophy (which is ultimately about Wisdom from Truth and Reality) is important to our world (all proceeds from this shop are used to promote our work on Philosophy, Physics and Metaphysics).
Thus we also hope that you find our Philosophy Website interesting!
Cheers,
Karene. (September, 2010)
