Quote of the day

Lichtenberg on Books

“If a book and a head collide and make a hollow sound, is that always on account of the book?”

[“Wenn ein Buch und ein Kopf zusammenstoßen und es klingt hohl, is das allemal im Buch?”]

G.C. Lichtenberg, Sudelbücher., D.396 from Sudelbuch D, (Frankfurt am Main und Leipzig: Insel Verlag, 1984), (1773-1775), p.156.

Russell Loses His Mind

Bertrand Russell noted, that in the early twentieth century, whilst psychologists were coming to regard mind as more and more material, seeking to reduce it the physical, physicists were coming to regard matter as less and less material, and even in some cases coming to regard it as mental. In other words, the physicists were shifting the terms of the physical upon which the psychologists were seeking to set the terms of the mental.

Regarding Bertrand Russell, The Analysis of Mind (Oxford: Routledge, 1992), Preface.
