    Very nice.

    I recall Paracelsus, to whom philosophical cognition was a “zuwerffen” – objects throwing their meaning at man. Because they have that bit of firmament in them. It says itself what it is.

    What happened to being in philosophical discourse? I think it was replaced by knowledge as the most important. Knowledge has an economic value. It’s treated as a commodity (rightly so I’d say). The more specialized (rare) knowledge is, the more value it has.
    Being, on the other hand, is the most universal, basic, common and therefore economically worthless trait a thing can have.
    Being escapes categories yet these days people seem to want to become more categorized.
