Become who you are.

This journey is your truest purpose.
That vision is your highest star.

This is the purpose of my work. To teach myself, and others, to truly develop, grow, and embody a mature philosophy of living, and living well.

To become who you are.

Up ’till now, philosophy has only tried to understand or change the world, in various ways; the point, is to understand and change the self. To achieve this, you need an honest and daily commitment from yourself, and an arsenal of good, powerful, and uplifting ideas.

This is my philosophy. What I think, and what I do. Thus, in the spirit of action, I have created eRochefoucauld.

Through eRochefoucauld, I am creating podcasts, youtube videos, and more. This is an education for the true adult and for the 21st century. The highest aim of all my work is straight forward: know thyself, develop thyself, and become who you are.

Plato, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, and more. Listen to the podcast.

Powerful conversations with guests from around the world.

Nonpartisan news and analysis. New episode every Sunday.


Story-telling and myth through erotic art and nude photography.

The Story of Philosophy (26 mins)

This story of philosophy is a bit different than many, because it’s meant for you. It’s simple, practical, and describes the story of your life and development, who ever you are. 

If you gave up on philosophy or education, I challenge you to try again. I’m asking for 26 minutes. If you listen to this, you will find an idea that you can use to improve your life and become who you are.

learn how it started...

It began as an idea in the fall of 2016. With encouragement from my wife, and the many hours of planning with my great friend and producer, I officially launched my first podcast on September 15, 2017. This period, by the standards of any fair observer, could justifiably be called a period of chaos.

But we are at once a product of our times and our aims. Read more.
