Philosophical practice | conversations
Philosophers no longer can tell us something about the world.
At least not since Nietzsche unmasked truth,
Which Husserl and the later Wittgenstein affirmed,
In Socrates' sense.
Just be present, giving all attention to the world.
Destroy those words that petrify your thinking,
Free the thoughts that close your ears and eyes
and benumb your heart.
Give your senses to the neighbor's feelings,
Your attention to the world here ahead.
I can be a guide in the landscape of your experience,
A help to cleanse your ego's whirlpools.

Socrates, Husserl, Levinas, and Wittgenstein.)
