The Individual and the World

„As a general rule philosophy is like stirring mud or not letting a sleeping dog lie.“

— Samuel Butler
Context: As a general rule philosophy is like stirring mud or not letting a sleeping dog lie. It is an attempt to deny, circumvent or otherwise escape from the consequences of the interlacing of the roots of things with one another. Philosophy
