As previously promised, the second edition of my short series on thinkers who understood inner travel has now been published over at Brave New Traveler. Predictably, it’s titled, “Five Eastern Thinkers Who Understood Inner Travel.”

Although as a fair warning, I’m quite discouraged by how it has been edited. My piece was the first article edited by their new editor, and the changes that were made by the editor were unnecessary, and they make the piece more simplistic and bland than it was originally written. Furthermore, there are a couple of grammatical typos which were actually edited in— not my doing (I wrote with a complaint and the errors still haven’t been corrected). So I apologize if it seems like the wit is ill-timed, or the paragraph transitions are awkward. Maybe you won’t notice because you didn’t see the original, but I wasn’t happy with it.

Nonetheless, you can check it out now and tell me what you think of the list. Who would you have listed? Oh, and I’m regretful to report, for those that took notice before, that it was more difficult to include female thinkers on an Eastern list than it was with the Western one, but I did look for them– I promise!

Over at Brave New Traveler, a short article of mine has been published, titled “5 (Western) Thinkers Who Understood Inner Travel.”

This marks the beginning of a new foray for me, as I embark into doing more travel writing. In this case, I was still able to incorporate some of my philosophical knowledge, so the transition shouldn’t be too abrupt.

Definitely check it out. I’m probably going to write a companion piece to this one on Eastern thinkers, so if you have someone you’d like to see on that list, let me know!

What 5 Western thinkers would you have included?
