Peter Sarsgaard Quotes

Emmanuel Levinas Quotes

"A fine risk is always something to be taken in philosophy. ... Philosophy thus arouses a drama between philosophers and an intersubjective movement which does not resemble the dialogue of teamworkers in science, nor even the Platonic dialogue which is the reminiscence of a drama rather than a drama itself. It is sketched out in a different structure; empirically it is realized as the history of philosophy in which new interlocutors always enter who have to restate, but in which the former ones take up the floor to answer in the interpretations they arouse, and in which, nonetheless, despite a lack of "certainty in ones movements" or because of it, no one is allowed a relaxation of attention or a lack of strictness."

Quotes About Laws And Freedom

"Religion should be subject to commonsense appraisal and rational review, as openly discussible as, say, politics, art and the weather.

There is no reason why we should shy away from speaking freely about religion, no reason why it should be thought impolite to debate it, especially when, as so often happens, religious folk bring it up on their own and try to impose it on others." - Author: Jeffrey Tayler
