    Dmitri Nikulin

    Profile

    For me, philosophy stems from the experience of talking to others in an attempt to understand the other person, myself as the other, as well as the world. Even though such conversation can never be completed, it is still meaningful at any point, and can be always carried on. It is in such conversation that humans are recognized as people; to be is to be is to be in dialogue with the other, from which we draw our meaning and well-being.
