About the Philosopher
"Even if you try to bring down my spirit, I will rarely despair as I have decided to put my very own life at stake. Therefore, there is only room for improvement or death. Since I don't want to die, I will resume my craft."
-- Rubinshtein on adversity
"Tomasio is a great philosopher we can all relate to."
-- Michelle Contreras Ewans, writer and researcher
"I see in you a beacon of hope for the distressed. Your courage, perseverance, and fortitude are a shining example for those who fail to see the light at the end of the tunnel. The sun always shines after a dark night! I wish you to worship the sun, which, as Khalil Gibran said, is the eye of God in the sky. All religions acknowledge that there was nothing in the beginning. As a result, they began to worship nature and evolved into powerful symbols."
-- Dr. S. K. Pachauri, former Secretary to the Government of India
Tomasio A. Rubinshtein is an Israeli philosopher and writer. Born in the 1990s, he wrote seven books, mostly of a philosophical nature, starting at the age of 15. He is primarily known for his participation on Quora, where he answered questions from people across the globe. A lot of his English content is a product of his voluntary services to this respected site, where he was also declared one of the site's Top Writers for 2018.
A firm believer in individuality, he resigned from his academic studies, and chose to go his own way as an independent philosopher, believing that one doesn't need an academic degree in order to be a philosopher, giving Socrates, Diogenes, and Nietzsche as examples.
In April 2019, he founded Philosocom, a site dedicated to his articles, meant to be read for at least a century.
Regarding his education, he has fully graduated high school and attended a few courses in philosophy at the Israeli Open University. In addition, he has won 3rd place in a local writing contest for high school students and reached the finals of an English speech competition in Jerusalem.
Rubinshtein has also been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome. At the age of 13, he volunteered in Israel's National Service for a year.
In 2019, Rubinshtein managed a community on the Quora website, composed of dozens of thousands of followers, dedicated to the sharing of insightful content. Since 2022, he has run a smaller community on said platform, called "The Tomasio Base" where he shares his Philosocom articles.
Tomasio Rubinshtein's purpose in life is simple -- to contribute to the world in his own way, and that way is a path of solitude, contemplation, and follower-gaining. Regardless of his disabilities preventing him from having a job, he still has a great desire to serve the world in a way that he sees as meaningful and productive. As a result, Philosocom aims to be read by anyone across the globe.
In April 2022, in his quest for relevance, Rubinshtein founded a political ideology called Political Rubinshteinism, or simply Rubinshteinism, which lies on the right-wing, libertarian part of the political compass. It is distinguished by the fact that it was also influenced by Rubinshtein's teachings regarding society and the sanctity of democracy.
