What Is the Philosopher Accountant?

This site is my commonplace book

  • I’m a deeply analytical thinker, and love the ideals set forth in philosophy and accounting
    • Philosophy answers the most important questions in life
    • Accounting displays large amounts of information as concise summaries
    • While philosophy alone can become highly impractical, accounting alone can become worthless tedium
  • This site isn’t for everyone
    • I try to answer the questions every civilized person eventually asks
    • Philosophical concepts are simplified into practical terms
    • If you read through this, you will understand a little bit about everything

The nature of the work means it’s technically always under construction, and this site is the work of my self-designed system:

  1. Archive hundreds of articles and books from reputable sources across the internet
  2. Eliminate any “fluff” from the articles:
    • Introductory statements meant to draw the reader in
    • Personal experiences and anecdotes that can identify with a specific audience
    • Very specific applications of the information that are more prescriptive than informative
    • Reiterations of the main point
    • Closing questions meant to inspire the comments thread
  3. Take the remaining ideas and assemble them into a coherent and practical narrative
  4. Lead from one logical application to the next across ideas
  5. Publish the finished pages or update existing pages

There are some others like me that value universally relevant and time-insensitive information, but most of the world likes information entertaining more than accurate and thorough

  • Imagine for a minute how much of the internet would remain if the following were removed:
    • Cat photos
    • Videos of people getting hurt
    • Pornography
    • Crazy, dumb or rich people doing things that don’t matter
    • Narcissistic status updates
    • The week’s favorite memes
    • Entertainment that adds zero value to its consumers
    • Misleading links to useless articles
  • Anything else left over is likely to be obfuscated and distorted to fit selfish ambitions:
    • Motivation to misrepresent facts for the sake of marketing
    • Pay-for-viewing subscription services that cost money nobody needs to spend
    • Promotion of additional services and products that may not provide the ideal solution to the reader
  • Even to the most noble intentions, many people fail to provide the simple facts:
    • Stories and restatements of the same information
    • Inaccurate information from inexperience or unreasonable levels of bias
    • Omitted information that strings along readers to the next chapter, installment or premium/subscriber content

I make no money off of this site, this is my desire to create a self-help portal for anyone who just wants the facts
