The Shrink and The Sage

Can we be too secure?

Demanding too much security for our beliefs is to demand the impossible. We have to accept that what we believe might be false, what we do in good faith might be wrong, what we take to be most real might be an illusion. At the same time, we must do our best to get as close to the true, the good and the real as we can. Philosophically, we are always walking a tightrope, thinking without a safety net.
