TOF and I had this exchange in his blog post on the Olympics.
My Comment: And if we can have a world where everyone is a winner, philosophers like you and I will be sans vocations!
TOF’s Response : And that brings a challenging question for us philosophers! Are there not other human dimensions for us philosophers than victory and defeat?
I will let this cartoon answer TOF.
