Through the Myst: Philosophical Adventures…


Castle, Forest, Island, Sea

From bickering birds to scary monsters, choose your quest and find your way out of the castle.

There are nine chapters exploring key questions in philosophy and it will take approximately 30-60 minutes to complete your adventure. As you navigate through the story, the game will build up an idea of how you feel about these questions, and at the end of the game you’ll receive an analysis of your choices and a map of how your opinions compare to different philosophers through the ages…

Created by Carolyn Price of the Open University, “Castle, Forest, Island, Sea” is “a choose-your-own-adventure story that explores key questions in philosophy.”


As we wander the halls of wisdom, we might send edenic birthday greetings to Diane Ackerman; she was born on this date in 1948.  An author, poet, and naturalist, she is best known for her bestseller A Natural History of the Senses, which was made into a 1995 PBS series hosted by the birthday girl.

Ackerman also has the rare distinction of having a molecule named after her (dianeackerone, a novel secretory product from a crocodile).
