Quotes March 2017

"Meaning is the only reason for desire." ---Nathan Coppedge

"We don't even know everything about everything. But I would say that's a starting point." ---Nathan Coppedge

"Practical virtues and philosophy are good supplements when complexity and perfection fail." ---Nathan Coppedge

"Sometimes I think that I am the first and last of all philosophers, not because I am necessarily the greatest of all possible ideas, but rather because most of the ideas did not come into existence, and I am the only one I know to provide a coherent standard for their reality. Not only that, but the standard was so difficult to create, and so late in arriving, that like Aristotle's logic, there will be little alternative to accepting the standard, or rejecting altogether the possibility of coherence. For me, philosophy begins and may even end with coherence. But for those that reject coherence there will also be other possible standards, but none is likely to be rigorous. Without coherence, in my view, philosophy lacks a standard." ---Nathan Coppedge
