knowledge


Random quote of the day:

“Insight is accompanied by a sense of surprise. What has been closed is suddenly disclosed. It entails genuine perception, seeing anew. He who thinks we can see the same object twice has never seen. Paradoxically, insight is knowledge at first sight.”

—Abraham J. Heschel, The Prophets

Random quote of the day:

“Modern intelligence is in utter confusion. Knowledge has become so diffuse that the world and the mind have lost all point of reference. It is a fact that we are suffering from nihilism. But the most amazing things are the admonitions to ‘turn backward.’ Return to the Middle Ages, to primitive mentality, to the soil, to religion, to the arsenal of worn-out solutions. To grant a shadow of efficacy to those panaceas, we should have to act as if our acquired knowledge had ceased to exist, as if we had learned nothing, and pretend in short to erase what is inerasable.”

—Albert Camus, The Notebooks, 1942-1951 (tr. Justin O’Brien)
