"What would be the use of discovering so-called objective truth, of working through all the systems of philosophy and of being able, if required, to review them all and show up the inconsistencies within each system … what good would it do me if truth stood before me, cold and naked, not caring whether I recognised her or not, and producing in me a shudder of fear rather than a trusting devotion?" If you need a new holiday for the 5th of may, may I recommend Søren Kierkegaard's birthday. Lets drink and talk existentialism and other parts of universal heritage.
The rest of this great article can be found in my profile for about a week probably. 🖤 " Human beings are caught, he said, between two modes or ‘spheres’ of existence. The ‘aesthetic’ is the world of immediacy, of here and now. The ‘ethical’ is the transcendent, eternal world. We can’t live in both, but neither fulfils all our needs since ‘the self is composed of infinitude and finitude’, a perhaps hyperbolic way of saying that we exist across time, in the past and future, but we are also inescapably trapped in the present moment.

The limitations of the ‘ethical’ are perhaps most obvious to the modern mind. The life of eternity is just an illusion, for we are all-too mortal, flesh-and-blood creatures. To believe we belong there is to live in denial of our animality. So the world has increasingly embraced the ‘aesthetic’. But this fails to satisfy us, too. If the moment is all we have, then all we can do is pursue pleasurable moments, ones that dissolve as swiftly as they appear, leaving us always running on empty, grasping at fleeting experiences that pass. The materialistic world offers innumerable opportunities for instant gratification without enduring satisfaction and so life becomes a series of diversions. No wonder there is still so much vague spiritual yearning in the West: people long for the ethical but cannot see beyond the aesthetic." #kierkegaard #kimkardashianwest #jullianbaggini #existentialism #philosophy #johannesclimacus #johannesdesilentio #constantineconstantius #victoreremita

#VictorEremita "Clearing" cassette on #BlackHorizons. Cold, slow, subtle & sublime with an insane slipcase packaging. So good I'll forgive the hippie crystal.

From one of my favorite books and favorite philosophers: My #Soul has lost possibility. I would not #Wish for wealth or power but for the #Passion of #Possibility, for the eye, eternally young, eternally ardent, that sees Possibility everywhere. #Pleasure disappoints; possibility does not. - Either/Or, Soren Kierkegaard || #Philosophy #PhilosophyNerd #VictorEremita #Books #Favorite #Classics #Kierkegaard #Aesthetics #Ethics #Morals #Life #Me #Selfie #TheMissJaPak #Pinay #Pinoy #Korean #KoreanGirl #ILookLikeAMixedKid #MudBlood
