Philosophy Page

This is my page for all things philosophic and anti-philosophic. I've included here some of my own aphoristic writings, and hope to add more of my stuff as I get around to it. Other things included here are some of my favorite quotes and a list of philosophy hypertext links.

Heil Heidegger!

A Favorite Quote
Dreams and art are the doubles of reality: they imply positive relations. Fictions born from ressentiment are inverted and evanescent shadows, able only to depreciate it.
-- Sarah Kofman, "Baubo: Theological Perversion and Fetishism," Nietzsche's New Seas, p. 181.

...a false ethics is erected, religion and mythological monsters are then in turn called to buttress it, and the shadow of these dismal spirits in the end falls even across physics and the entire perception of the world.
-- Friedrich Nietzsche, Human, All Too Human, S.37, trans. by R.J. Hollingdale.

Another Quote
Logicality in regard to practical the most useful quality an animal can possess, and might, therefore, result from the action of natural selection; but outside of these it is probably of more advantage to the animal to have his mind filled with pleasing and encouraging visions, independently of their truth; and thus, upon unpractical subjects, natural selection might occasion a fallacious tendency of thought.
-- Charles Sanders Peirce, "The Fixation of Belief," The Philosophy of Peirce, p. 8.

Another Quote
How many trees make up the forest? How many houses a city? the German proverb goes, one cannot see the forest for the trees. Forest and city are two things essentially deep, and depth is fatally condemned to become a surface if it wants to be visible.
-- Jose Ortega y Gasset, "The Forest," Meditations on Quixote, p. 59.
