We’re excited that you’ve joined the conversation! At HMU, we want to continue the great authors’ conversations in a contemporary context, and this blog will help us do that. We look back to Aristotle and the early philosophers who used reason and discourse to gain wisdom and now we endeavor to do the same every day.

Thanks to Alissa Simon, HMU Tutor, for today’s post.
More than ten years ago, when my thesis advisor asked me to translate some of Gabriela Mistral’s poetry, I had never heard of her. But I am ever so grateful because Mistral’s writings have had a profound impact on my life. Growing up in rural Chile, Mistral was mostly self-taught. She then became a schoolteacher in her late teens.
