Either/Or: A Fragment of Life | Soren Kierkegaard

I have always been shocked by the narrative of Kierkegaard's life; but we realize that it has its consummation in the present. We learn so much from logic, but Kierkegaard's logic is based on a relativity that we recognize in Christianity. Still, we can grow in power: as we learn more, everything becomes more natural, and the truths that we came up with with one logic, get subsumed under a logic that is free from the consequences of that logic.

Yes, play a board game like Monopoly with friends, you'll discover things about them you never expected.

• Sadly, a #DNF for me. I was in over my head trying to understand what Neitzsche was writing. Shame because I like #philosophy and would like to explore his work. Maybe I'll try another of his or revisit this one in the future, but it's not for me right now •

Blind Date: Sex and Philosophy | Anne Dufourmantelle
post image

I prolonged the gratifying experience of opening my “Blind Date With a Book” choice so I could take a picture to post.

I wonder if anyone can guess, based on the first line and genre noted on the package. The first one is general fiction and begins with, “I don‘t have good memories of growing up. Seems like I knew a lot of ugly stuff when I shouldn‘t.” The other one is a mystery and the first line is, “We were talking about the kidnapped baby.”

Butterflyamore I‘ll show you what‘s inside later! 2w
AmyG Before we were Yours? This line sounds familiar. 2w
Butterflyamore @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @AmyG I just posted the reveal picture! 2w
AmyG Ha...thanks! 2w

Ethica | Benedictus de Spinoza

I think Spinoza is a nasty piece of work. What I see, however, in this work, is also a kind of idea of the world as being locked in a constant battle for freedom. We see, in philosophy in general, a tendency towards the opposite, the enslavement of the mind to tradition and idiotic consciousness. When we compare Spinoza to Confucius, we see immediately that there is progress to be made internationally, and that Eastern philosophy is not perfect.
