About

Hello and welcome. I’m so glad you’re here!

Pocket Philosopher presents ideas from a broad range of thinkers in a relatable way for our time. It’s written by me, Rachel Linton, a psychologist, reader and writer from Sydney, Australia.

I’m a philosopher not in the sense of being a Great Thinker but because I literally have a love (philo) of wisdom (sophia).

The more I explore the Big Questions, the more I appreciate the viewpoints of all kinds of thinkers – writers, artists, economists, psychologists, scientists, spiritual leaders and more.

This site is a way for me to reflect on and share the wisdom I find in the world everywhere in talking to people, in books, articles, music, podcasts and online.

I hope you enjoy it and get as much out of reading it as I do in writing it,
