Thus, writing for the philosopher is a natural outgrowth of such investigation and again the building block that allows humanity to look at the thought structure as a whole, often with marvel, and then continue to build: hopefully even higher.  This perspective also invites variation and in some instances a ‘house cleaning’ in order to expand and remodel a theory or line of reasoning or simply to start over in a new direction.  Such expansion or rethinking is made possible by the common denominator of humanity and the human experience recorded in the written work of philosophers.  This written work continually questions existence but also that which has been build upon its vast foundation or horizon often in light of humanities investigative constructs.  It is no surprise then that the written work of generations of philosophers has interacted with and changed, in many instances, the most important aspects of all of our lives because they have likewise been aspects of a philosopher’s life as well.  For instance, one might write in favor of universals and find this work integrated into material pertaining to the Christian dogma.  Or they may write on existentialism and find their work in the mouths of those refuting religious ideals or those propagating great wars.  Or they may simply write to question the grand context in which all this takes place.
