To those who remember the old days (ten years ago), I say hello.

Mon 28 Jun, 2010 02:13 am - Hi there, Gosh. Good post. I think I agree with all of that. It's somewhat tangent to what [i]I[/i] mean by ideal precision, but it does fit into the thread well.
Thu 24 Jun, 2010 02:44 am - I've thought about concept-form-essence-being quite a bit lately, to put it mildly. And Wittgenstein, Heidegger, Hegel, Plato, Schopenhauer, Aristotle, and Kant have all put a brick in the... (view)
Wed 9 Jun, 2010 06:37 pm - [QUOTE=Ding_an_Sich;174766]I think, for the sake of time, that I should deal with one of these, namely, form. But as I do not have a very clear understanding on even this subject, I am allowing... (view)
