The Solution

posted by on January 29 at 15:17 PM

Here it is at last: Mix Vico’s theory of historical stages with Plotinus’ concept of the “One” (and not Spinoza’s absolute) with Aristotle’s “entelecheia” and what you get is the “World Mind” that appears in Philosophy of History. Four is the number of years it took me to realize that solution, and four is now the number of years it will take me to determine why I wanted that solution in the first place.

The solution to which question, exactly?

My thoughts exactly.
Call me "unrefined", but far too philosophically deep (and far too many references) for me to even grasp le moindre idée.
