What, is, the, obsession, with, the, comma, in, Continental, philosophy?
Tragically few of us bother to think at all.
sounds like a pickup line at a philosophy convention to me...
at least he didn't mention Lacan for once. :)
Sometimes, I think Charles' posts are just random words, devoid of purpose, that simply serve to obfuscate an overtly pretentious mind. In short, they're art, meant not to convey meaning, but inspire the reader to feel befuddlement, and a sense of emptyness.
"Our purpose in life might be nothing more than to be the thought of the universe."
you're wrong on this one, chaz.
shouldn't mix that Hillbilly Heroin, pot and red wine
Charles, you crack me up. You TOTALLY punked de Duve, a la Alan Sokal! Nice! F'ing brilliant!
errrr, or else you are just a pretentious babbling pseudo-intellectual... with a terrible case of the Dunning-Kruger effect.
I vote for the latter.
It's thinking like this that got Pluto kicked off the planet list.
You people should be nicer to Charles. You'll miss him when he's gone.

I just fucking blew my mind.
