Thought 242: Measure of the Times

Philosophy need not be merely an academic pursuit of intellectual discussion but one of creative labour that, while finding little echo in its own time, still manages to quietly impose its measure on the times. 

The same can be said of art generally. 

As Heidegger said in his lecture Introduction to Metaphysics, philosophy
"will have its time"
springing from backstreets and hidden pockets never chartered in advance.
