Under The Sun

Friday, June 06, 2003

"[T]he overwhelming experience of exposure to the wondrous, the suffering involved in letting oneself be determined and guided by the indeterminate, the awe and astonishment at undergoing an impression that cannot be absolutely appropriated but only indeterminately received. From this fundamental state does philosophy arise--as the laborious articulation of the experience of powerlessness, as the articulation of passion."

--Claudia Baracchi, "Plato's Shadows At Noon"

The distinction between philosophy and religion is artificial.
