In praise of philosophy

This falls under the parts of Starlight's request that read "gapfiller" and "anything that draws your interest".

"What's this?" Faramir glances up to see his brother standing there, gazing bemusedly past him at the book. "Volume four of The Red Books?"

Faramir looks back at the pages. The Red Books–thirty-five hundred years of strategy and tactics, diplomacy and spycraft, in twelve volumes of grim, dull reading.

"So, you've finally come to appreciate the prosaic? No Haradric sages this month?" Boromir teases.

This time, Faramir smiles and taps his temple. "Oh, they are with me, never fear. Otherwise, why read such as these? Without wisdom, politics but preserves a dead world; the point is to change it."

"Philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways; the point is, to change it."–K. Marx, 187 years this May.
