The Lion who Speaks
The Hillsdale Blogging Community has become the League of Extraordinary Bloggers with Metzger’s latest contribution. A funny a mostly accurate parody/description, Metz, nice work.

My attempts at philosophy as poetry (a la Heidegger or Wittgenstein) have become my superpower - I am the Wielder of the ancient power of aphorism and have the power to shrink a normal-sized blog entry into a few sentences.

Of course, this also means my readers often ask, “What the hell did Silliman just say?”

"The poet speaks the essential word ... Poetry is the establishing of being by means of the word." - Heidegger

"Philosophy really should be written only as a form of poetry." - Wittgenstein
