Welcome to The Persistent Seeker, a blog focused on philosophy, fitness, nature, Christianity, history, politics, and whatever else strikes my fancy. I’m Rick, sole proprietor. I’m a graduate student in philosophy, an animal lover, a Marine vet, and generally equal parts exasperating and amusing. I started this blog because I thought it was high time the costs of my opinions being expressed were externalized beyond my long-suffering family and friends.

I recommend ale for coping with my opinions, ale for coping with my writing, and ale for coping with me in general. (That’s how I cope with those things. It’s best if we’re on the same page.)

analytic philosophy, strength and conditioning, emerging Christianity, libertarian politics, and chivalry
