autumn notes

The ultimacy of the universe will be forever unknown. So, the ultimate point of Our form of life is ours to design, making time worthwhile,
at best cultivating humanity lastingly.

The originator of Positive Psychology, Mihalyi Csikszentmihalyi
(“Me-hall-ee Chick-sent-me-high”), died last month, 87. “His” empirically well-established domain (by now, 30+ years after its founding) has had a profound influence on professional psychology,
on my development, and continues to flourish—I noted today
for interdisciplinary humanities.

bibliophilc confession

I was a teenage Klein Bottle.

in honor of letters

Today is the 75th anniversary of the day, 1946, when Jean Beaufret sent his questions to Heidegger, which resulted in the “Letter on Humanism.”

I want to write to that.
