Philosopher on my business card?

For decades I’ve been telling people that I want the title “Philosopher” on my business card at least once in my career.

But thinking philosophically makes life in business painful for the philosophically-minded. Business is not a philosophically flexible environment. In business we must adopt the lingua franca philosophy of business as the dominant one, and everything else must be translated. Native-thinkers of business philosophy will always be more fluent than business-as-a-second-philosophy thinkers.

Whine, whine, whine.

One thought on “Philosopher on my business card?

  1. Just. Do. It.

    First, it would be a great litmus test of who closely reads your business card. Secondly, if they do react to your title, it’s a great conversation starter. Think of it as a micro-strangification.
