Here is a Little Monday Morning Treat

From a mock interview with Kant:

Kant: ...You may think that philosophy is an esoteric discipline practiced by a bunch of old men sitting around wondering whether the world exists and inventing some exotic language in which to disguise their nonsense, but that isn’t it at all....Philosophy is concerned with nothing less than the ruling ideas of human life what we can know, what we should believe, what we ought to do, what we can hope (Solomon 1981:12).

Ok, yes, so I know (now) that it is actually Tuesday. It must be Tuesday, I never could get the hang of Tuesdays, anyway.
