tsuomela : canon   10

shorter version of the 20 greatest philosophers post « Object-Oriented Philosophy
"It seems to me that what could happen instead (not sure if it will) is a situation in which, even within the same basic civilizational/disciplinary framework (e.g., philosophers in the Western tradition), multiple rival traditions of major references slowly emerge. Not “an infinite number,” as if each person’s opinion constituted a separate tradition in itself, but say 4 or 5 somewhat mutually exclusive conceptions of what philosophy is.

It’s not a question of whether the traditions would be really “irreconcilable,” but of whether they would in fact be reconciled or not."

MIT Press Journals - World Policy Journal - Fall 2010
Is there, as
World Policy Journal suggests in every issue, a truly global network of creativity—not
only in the written word, but in art, drama, music, film, television and beyond? The
answers arrived and the results, we believe, will surprise and entertain. For the first time
in our quarter century as a publication, we consider poetry, music, painting, internet art,
film from Nigeria, plays from Peru—the entire gamut of human creativity—to arrive at
the conclusion we suspected from the start: That today, for perhaps the first time in human
history, a Global Canon has arrived.

The Splintered Mind: Philosophical Trust
"It seems to me there's a great divide within philosophy between those with high self- to other-trust ratios and those with low ratios." People willing to spend a lot of time understanding Hegel's Phenomenology or Heidegger's Being and Time must trust that these thinkers have something useful to say.
