Re: Criticism

There are some fine points that need to be established here, which may take a few turns. This first is important: Being is not a quality, but the very truth of existence. Being, as the ground of existence, cannot be a quality of something else, and as such cannot be compared to experience. There is...

Re: Criticism

Before I can go further, there is another little twist that I need to straighten. I was not referring to any distinction between knowing and thinking, I was strictly talking about poetic thought and representational thought. Perhaps you think of these as abstract concepts, but you need not do so, a...

Re: Criticism

Anyway, the key questions I want you to ask you at this point, and would appreciate a reply to, are as follows - are you aware that when you write reasoned conclusions about "energy", "esthetic knowledge", etc. that you are, in fact, thinking, even if you normally don't pay atte...

Re: Criticism

What I see here is you imposing your metaphysical framework to work your own reductionism. A couple quick examples: 1.

Re: Patterns and Meaning in Music

Miles Davis on reflection of his study at Julliard: “You have to learn all that stuff in order to be able to forget it.” An interesting discussion between two brilliant people.

Re: Thanksgiving and Metacognition

There's topic that I'd like to address about becoming more aware. Lemme see if I, as a non-philosopher, can muster some passable lingo. First, let me acknowledge that despite the fact that I often squirm at the torrent of words, logic, concepts and the like along the Steiner path, I do think I grok...

Re: Criticism

2. Heidegger did say that, and it is a point of disagreement I have with him. Heidegger had no understanding of music, and that perhaps impeded his understanding of Zarathustra. The deep bells that brought Zarathustra to his understanding of the abyss did not come from beyond, but from the bowels o...
