Never used this facility before so just exploring to find out what happens.  Like the idea of community blogs, though I'm not quite sure what to blog about just yet.

That Darn Abyss

Posted by AndSheSmiled, 28 December 2011 - - - - - - · 833 views

There are random moments when I become undeniably stuck in "The Abyss". Yea, that not so lovely, bittersweet, utter void of emotion and desire that comes along with musing. Sometimes it happens for a few minutes, sometimes hours, sometimes days, somethings a week (hopefully I will never have it longer than a week -- the one time that I found mysel...

Being & Time, Nietzsche and 1 more...
After surviving the insidious Indiana-Jones styled traps in the lobby of the labyrinth, Nietzsche and I take a break in a small enclave.  Moi: "So, Nietzsche, my esteemed German philosopher, what did we learn?"   Friedrich: "Ah, let's see. First we deciphered the hieroglyphs on the floor to indicate a horrible monstrosity that has been slumber...

Being & Time, Heidegger and 1 more...
After I spend the night stabbing my Kant voodoo doll, just to stay awake, a feeble cough wheezes from down the hall. I found myself dismissing it as a threat. After tip-toeing around the corner I find a man huddling his knees, shivering on the cold marble floor with torn clothes. "Sir," I ask hesitating. The shriveled person hacks once more and lo...

Heidegger, Nietzsche, Carnap and 2 more...
With a nervous disposition and panting breath, I cracked open Being and Time  and fall into the bottomless chasm, uttering to myself over and over, "Menschliches, Allzumenschliches ," clutching my Götzendämmerung  until the vanishing light behind me recede into nothingness...      A dimensional portal with Heidegger's haughty visage loom...

Winter is coming: Game of Thrones episode 1 review

Game of Thrones, HBO, television and 1 more...
“Winter is coming” and it has arrived on HBO with the grand ambitions of the novel and the visceral promise of television. The first episode of the new HBO series, Game of Thrones, dispelled a lot of my ambivalent feelings about having my all-time favorite series from the fantasy genre being adapted into television format. Being stoked by the pre-show hyp...

The Galilean Library - Determinism Resource

Posted by Michael S. Pearl, 21 June 2010 - * * * * * · 557 views

One topic which is rather frequently revisited in this as well as other forums which delve into philosophy is the matter of determinism . Sometimes determinism is considered in terms of free will; sometimes determinism is investigated in and of itself. It is a good topic in which to engage in order to discipline the mind and in order to begin to learn how...

Why 'do' philosophy?

Posted by madcelt, 07 April 2010 - - - - - - · 697 views

Come to think of it, didn’t one of those early Greek fellows say (more or less) that the more he thought about things the more he realised that he knew very little and I understand he is generally accepted as one of the wisest men who ever walked upon this earth. So what is to be gained from philosophising?You know what you know. So if you know why or how...

Why history of Philosophy?

Despite my advanced years, I am very new to (formal) philosophy. In the bit of recent 'dabbling' which I have done, I have come across statements like -Nowadays, of course, the ideas of xxxxxxx are considered erroneous ...ORThe theories of xxxxxxx on mind/thought/belief/knowledge are no longer acceptable ... ORxxxxxxx's ideas are no longer con...
