“May Hegel’s philosophy of absolute nonsense – three-fourths cash and one-fourth crazy fancies – continue to pass for unfathomable wisdom without anyone suggesting as an appropriate motto for his writings Shakespeare’s words: “Such stuff as madmen tongue and brain not,” or, as an emblematical vignette, the cuttle-fish with its ink-bag, creating a cloud of darkness around it to prevent people from seeing what it is, with the device: mea caligine tutus. – May each day bring us, as hitherto, new systems adapted for University purposes, entirely made up of words and phrases and in a learned jargon besides, which allows people to talk whole days without saying anything; and may these delights never be disturbed by the Arabian proverb: “I hear the clappering of the mill, but I see no flour.””
“Şunu kabul edeceğimizi sanmaktayım: “Başlangıçta eylem vardı.””
Sigmund Freud – Totem ve Tabu
Önceki yazılarımda ‘başlangıçta’ şu vardı bu vardı diyenlerin ‘Bible people’ için yazdıklarını belirtmiştim.
