OGNI SPERANZA?

''The great humanity has no shade on his soil
no lamp on his road
no glass on his window
but the great humanity has hope
you can’t live without hope''

LEVIATHAN DETHRONED?





I need to instruct myself and the relevant world in the art of rhetoric - how we present what we ''know'' ...

Let us persuade them - our interests converge and they ''converge at this point''

Life is not geometric, ''The rule'' which Hobbes discussed. Euclid cannot supply our rule for meaning

The ''market'' as our god has clouded our vision - what ''I'' want is an absence of me - I am not fairly defined ... What we are is complex and a metaphysic construct ...

What I want, in some degree I must desire for ''you'' - the fount, or rather spring of wisdom?
