The true system, the real system, is our present construction of systematic thought itself, rationality itself... If a revolution destroys a systematic government, but the systematic patterns of thought that produced that government are left intact, then those patterns will repeat themselves in the succeeding government. There’s so much talk about the system. And so little understanding.
Robert M. Pirsig
food for thought
It must... be remembered that there is no such thing as finality in philosophical thinking. As knowledge advances and fresh avenues of thought are opened, other views… are possible. Our duty is carefully to watch the progress of human thought, and to maintain an independent critical attitude towards it.
