Random Thoughts

Art. Every person is a self creation. There is no external reality or essence grounding reflection, save the conversational constraints inherited from peer predecessors.

I do believe there are particulars in our environment. These objects do in fact exist, but we simply index them through linguistic tokens and symbols. There is no inherency within objects that necessitates one representation over another, and any perceived inherency is simply necessitated by context.

I’ve been reading quite a bit of pragmatism lately, specifically neopragmatism. Richard Rorty is responsible for creating this radical school of thought, and I have to say it strikes me as sounder than anything else I’ve read. I’ve also been reading a great deal of Paul Feyerabend. Both of these philosophers are seen as relativists by many, but I think that’s incorrect.
