The desmet interview with Corbett is well worth watching in my opinion. If you have been paying attention you have not paid attention.
President John Adams once said, “facts are stubborn things.´´
Indeed stubborn things, as mule like as compliant consuls are Horse-like. And as
the little boy declared in the old fairy tale, where are the emperor’s clothes?
The flabby wine-skin of his brain
Yields to some pathologic strain,
And voids from its unstored abysm
The driblet of an aphorism.
In Closing Philosophy is a love of truth, Literally! So I give you two quotes to contrast with Caligula’s Aphorism.
“I constantly sought knowledge and truth, and it became my belief that for gaining access to the effulgence and closeness to God, there is no better way than that of searching for truth and knowledge.” Ibn al-Haytham
CHARLES SANDERS PEIRCE: ”In order to reason well …. it is absolutely necessary to possess … such virtues as intellectual honesty and sincerity and a real love of truth (2.82). The cause [of the success of scientific inquirers] has been that the motive which has carried them to the laboratory and the field has been a craving to know how things really were … (1-34). [Genuine inquiry consists I in diligent inquiry into truth for truth’s sake (1.44), … in actually drawing the bow upon truth with intentness in the eye, with energy in the arm (1.235). [When] it is no longer the reasoning which determines what the conclusion shall be, but … the conclusion which determines what the reasoning shall be … this is sham reasoning….

Que mon nom soit fletri, que la France soit libre, “For definitions are very dreadful things:They fight; and they fight fair”, the explanation a kind of sham corbel that supports nothing #Moduloft Home Truths and Truth to Power?

In this groundbreaking study, Bruce Charlton sheds brilliant light on fundamental features of our current situation. He develops Marshall McLuhan’s insight that “the medium is the message” into a deeply illuminating account of the mass media as a self-sustaining techno-cultural system that absorbs the whole of human life into a virtual world of willfulness and unreality. Like Plato in his Myth of the Cave, he calls for each of us to turn away from flickering images and toward realities. We need to heed that call. —James Kalb: author of The Tyranny of Liberalism and Against Inclusiveness.
