poem

what is the relationship
between beauty and wisdom
tough to tease out because
nobody i know
seems all that beautiful or wise

for Putting My Feet in the Dirt

  1. I guess it all depends on how you define beauty.

    • once philosophy raises its ugly head, every word in a sentence requires an examination of its definition. cheers. 🙂

    • i love philosophy too. several podcasts i really enjoy.

      i hesitated to use the word “ugly” wrt “philosophy raising its head,” but that’s the cliche so i stuck with it.

      was just revisiting Wittgenstein’s Tractatus and my point was, if you define beauty, you might need to define every other word in the line as well, especially “wisdom.” 🙂
