A Couple of Tots

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 10:15 PM

The title is from the post "Child's Play" of May 21, 2012 . . .

"It seems that only one course is open to the philosopher
who values knowledge and truth above all else. He must
refuse to accept from the champions of the forms the
doctrine that all reality is changeless [and exclusively
immaterial], and he must turn a deaf ear to the other party
who represent reality as everywhere changing [and as only
material]. Like a child begging for 'both', he must declare
that reality or the sum of things is both at once  [το όν τε και
το παν συναμφότερα] (Sophist  246a-249d)."
