The Corner

The one and only.

Clarity, Clarity


From a reader:

“Just so I understand. Reason is used in this case (These cases?) like “The Good” is in Plato. In other words, Reason exists outside of and independently of ourselves. It would exist even if we didn’t. the faculty of reasoning however is indeed tied to our physical capabilities, and as such is dependent on natural forces.

“Yes? Or do I misunderstand?”

Me: The answer is yes.
