“Hát igen, egész nap csak otthon gubbaszt. Kellene neki egy nő. Az ilyenek egyébként egymásra szoktak találni, és jól ki tudnak jönni, néha elég sokáig. Persze az eredmény néha a közös öngyilkosság, de együtt az is jobb, mintha egyedül ül otthon.”—
“Finite existence in the here and the now, with every limitation of quality and circumstance, is, Hegel teaches, when rightly regarded and accepted, identical with the infinite existence which is everywhere and always.”—
“Morgenbesser was leaving a subway station in New York City and put his pipe in his mouth as he was ascending the steps. A police officer told him that there was no smoking on the subway. Morgenbesser pointed out that he was leaving the subway, not entering it, and hadn’t lit up yet anyway. The cop again said that smoking was not allowed in the subway, and Morgenbesser repeated his comment. The cop said, “If I let you do it, I’d have to let everyone do it.” Morgenbesser replied, “Who do you think you are, Kant?” Due to his accent, the word “Kant” was mistaken for a vulgar epithet and Morgenbesser was hauled off to the police station. He won his freedom only after a colleague showed up and explained the Categorical Imperative to the unamused cops.”—via J.H.
“In light of that, John McCumber once half-jestingly suggested that perhaps we should therefore see Hegelian idealism not as having died out but simply as having mutated in light of developments in culture since his time; just as some people think that dinosaurs did not become extinct, but instead evolved into smaller, more efficient life forms (namely, birds), perhaps Hegel likewise just mutated into smaller, more efficient philosophical forms, and the Quines, Sellars, and Rortys of our day are only the smaller but more efficiently adapted versions of the old all-encompassing and now extinct tyrannosaur, Hegel himself (McCumber 1993: 28–9).”—
“If this life be not a real fight in which something is eternally gained for the universe by success, it is no better than a game of private theatricals from which we may withdraw at will.
It feels like a fight.”—James
“[ii] As for the second [objection], hwnan affairs, of course, would be conducted far more happily if it were equally in man’s power to be silent and to speak. But experience teaches all too plainly that men have nothing less in their power than their tongue, and can do nothing less than moderate their appetites.”—Spinoza
My main main argument is based on text number… ööö… it is not on the hand out…
*kioszt egy handoutot, amiből az összes space eltűnt* well, sorry for this hand out, I had conversion problems, but we only need those three lines on the third page, sorry M, that I made you print out the whole… *egy erdőcske sírva fakad*
Unfortunately this computer does not play this video, but I hope, you can see it on my laptop *miközben a feje felett a falfelé tartja a laptopot, hogy tartsa a szemkontaktust a közönséggel*
Spinoza says that whenever I understand that my pain is caused by God, and not by, let’s say, the man beating me with a stick, my pain changes into joy. Well, I am not a good Spinozost…
