“…Socrates has scored! The Greeks are going mad, the Greeks are going mad. Socrates scores, got a beautiful cross from Archimedes. The Germans are disputing it. Hegel is arguing that the reality is merely an a priori adjunct of non-naturalistic ethics, Kant via the categorical imperative is holding that ontologically it exists only in the imagination, and Marx is claiming it was offside. But Confucius has answered them with the final whistle! It’s all over!…”
This truly is an excellent end of the semester diversion.
I love the fact that Leibniz is on the far right of the goal when Socrates scores at 3:00, but he is on the far left of the goal in the reply at 3:34. Is this evidence that Kant was right: ontologically the goal only exists in the imagination? Maybe Confucius should have honored the Germans’ protest.
