Enjoying me some good ol' Nassim Taleb. Later today I write about why I love Taleb and why I disagree with how he wants me to live my life. . . Update: Check link in my bio for the article - "The Problem with the Pragmatism of Taleb" on my public diary 9to5Smark. . . . . #nassimtaleb #book #bookstagram #skininthegame #reader #readersofinstagram #writer #writersofinstagram #philosopher #philosophersofinstagram #smark #theonlysmarkoninstagram
"...as Dasein falls, anxiety brings it back from its absorption in the world" - Martin Heidegger's beast of a book, Being & Time, described 'Dasein' (our presence or 'being in' the world) as our default state. In this state we are immersed in our experiences, and it is only in moments of anxiety that we are shaken from our surroundings and momentarily see the world as it is, without inherent meaning. Heidegger uses anxiety in a philosophical sense, but it ties closely to moments we experience in which we feel alien from the world and separate from it. These moments, though uncomfortable, allow us to see things with greater clarity. . . #100quotesonpurpose #existentialism #questionsonpurpose #100dayproject . . . #philosophy #philosophyquotes #existentialist #meaningoflife #anxiety #angst #existentialangst #philosophersofinstagram

I totally came up with this one alone without any sort of plagiarism of @timmmmmmmm. Nope, @timmmmmmmm definitely did not say this phrase in a group conversation with a bunch of #damnweinerkids about the merits of #theproblemwithapu. I for sure did not steal @timmmmmmmm’s proprietary information, but I would like to bring this conversation from there to my feed now and see what you nerds think about The Simpsons and Apu, racism, System of a Down and why this song is even called Chop Suey! to begin with, being woke in America, stand-up Comedy and joke telling/social commentary, etc...👀🖤👁😂🗣😳 . . . #letterfolk #wokeaf #staywoke #pryingopenmythirdeye #systemofadown #chopsuey! #youwantedto #toxicity #stealthisalbum! #thejoker🃏 #imajokerimasmokerimamidnighttoker #igphilosophers #philosophersofinstagram #getupstandupcomedy #socialcommentary #socialcommenterry #georgecarlin #billhicks #mitchhedberg #tracymorgan #eddiemurphy #richardpryor #getwoke #cletustheslackjawedyokel #youcantjokeifyourenotwoke #thirdeyevision #thatsallfolks✌
I was all game for the whole fund raising rave for missionary trips... but, uh, that was a few years ago before I realized what was going on. We are sending people, generally capable of only light skills, extremely far away at times, in hopes so they can travel to the most poor countries & spread their gospel. To people who need not religion, not hope, not christ, but to people who need economy. Who need jobs. Who need a clean government, not a church. Not a bible. They need work. Let's send our economists there, our social scientists, our agronomists, our mathematicians, our entreprenuers. ~~~~~~ Trying to stay woke #staywoke #neverhadabadday #philosophersofinstagram
30 days | Season 2 | Episode 7 | Remind me . . P A R I S | M U S E U M . . Recap: Albert observes Simone stare at her favourite sculpture. . . Albert: Each time we come here, you stop exactly at this spot and look at the beautiful, faceless angel and I lose you right there. What does she remind you of? . . Simone: A demigoddess. . . Albert sports a curious face. . . Simone: Oh, nothing. I was reminded of a conversation with Rilke. He once said thoughts are demigoddesses. It's fascinating to think of our thoughts separate from us. How much of our thoughts are influences -- and how much we influence ourselves with those thoughts. . . Albert: Rilke is a dreamer. Always has been. . . Simone: True. But, not me. I actually believe what I just said. Each time I look at this faceless angel, I think of how lucky she is. She does not have to deal with thoughts and maybe that's how she is an angel. Innocent, graceful and pristine. . . Albert: *smiles* Do you think what we share is just a piece of influence from "thoughts"? . . Simone: I don't. What we share is love. I've felt connected to you since the first moment I saw you and that's hardly conditioned with thoughts. But what scares me is, I think of Rilke, and wonder if I love him unconditionally. And if I don't, why am I facing this pain of separation right now? 3 days and I'm already weak. And worse, I look at my friends and other couples - they all seem happy in love or married or just happy, you know? And I feel like I'm soon going to be the loneliest woman in this world. . . Albert: (Looks at his phone and reads) "You can spend your life worrying about labels/ideas such as partner, lover, friend, best friend, or stay busy giving and receiving affection because that's your raison detre." . . Albert: I highly recommend this book - "The Art Of Impermanence". . . Smiles and silence prevail. . . . TO BE CONTINUED...✍

#repost from @philosophersmag with @regram.app ... Jewish philosopher and mystic Maimonides was possibly born on 30 March, in Cordoba in Southern Spain. There is disagreement about his date of birth. It is widely stated to be 1135, however other sources give the date as 1138, based on recent research. He is almost universally regarded as the greatest Jew of the medieval period, whose philosophical work is compiled in his Guide of the Perplexed. ... "Know, my son, that as long as you are engaged in studying the mathematical sciences and the art of logic, you are one of those who walk around the house searching for its gate, as the Sages, may their memory be blessed, have said resorting to a parable: "Ben Zoma is still outside". If, however, you have understood the natural things, you have entered the habitation and are walking into the antechambers. If, however, you have achieved perfection in the natural things and have understood divine science, you have entered in the ruler's place into the inner court and are with him in one habitation. This is the rank of the men of science; they, however, are of different grades of perfection." ... #onthisday #philosophersofinstagram #philosophyoninstagram #maimonides #jewish #jewishmystic #philosophyofreligion #instaphilosophy #bookstagram

This is not necessarily a bad thing. Material is essential - just never forget it's antithesis. 💥
“Rising, streetcar, four hours in the office or the factory, meal, streetcar, four hours of work, meal, sleep, and Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday and Saturday according to the same rhythm–this path is easily followed most of the time. But one day the "why” arises and everything begins in that weariness tinged with amazement… weariness comes at the end of the acts of a mechanical life, but at the same time it inaugurates the impulse of consciousness.“ | Albert Camus, "The Myth of Sisyphus and other essays,” (page 13). #philosophy #dailyquotes #dailyinsight #philosophyquotes #philosophyquote #quotables #quotablequotes #philosophersofinstagram #philosophersofig #westernphilosophy #camus
