Böyle kitaplar okuduğumda bedenime ne kadar yabancı olduğumu anlıyorum O kadar ki yazılanların arkasında derin bir farkındalık olduğunu seziyor olsam bile kafamda oturtamıyorum tam yakalayacak gibi olduğumda kaçıveriyorBelki daha çok okumak lazım I was assigned to read this book as a finale to my Moral Theory and Philosophy class After reading the ridgid dogmatic and oftentimes abstract concepts of philosophers like Locke Hobbes Kant and other moral theorists it was uite literally a smack in the face Sartwell attempts to tear down all preconceived notions of good and bad saying that to deem one part of ourselves superior to another is inherently pervese He claims what makes us human is not only our proprensity for good but evil as well I sometimes grew weary of his shock and awe tactics of philosophy but really enjoyed the book over all It is truly unlike any piece of philisophical literature that I have ever read I recomend this book to anyone who enjoys philosophy traditional or contemporary as well as people fed up with any kind of system or dogma Bazı kitapların bazı insanların karşısına bazı zamanlarda çıkması tesadüfle açıklanabilir mi? Güzellikler tesadüfen mi gerçekleşir peki? En güzel sıcacık yerel kitapevlerinden birinde tesadüfen gözüme çarpan görür görmez beni heyecanlandıran ve hemen almama yol açan ve buna pişman etmeyen kitaplardan biri Kitapların şifa olma özellikleri vardır Özellikle de en “dayanamadığınız koşullara” ve “kısır döngü”bir yaşama sıkışıp kaldığınız dönemlerde sadık bir dost oluverirlerBana iyi gelecek kendimi genişlemiş hissettiren ve bütün dünyayı içime sığdırabiliyor olduğumu bir kez daha bana gösteren hislere bile yabancılaştığım duygularımla yaşadıklarımla ve görmezden gelmeye çalıştığım gerçeğimle barışmaya sonu hayalkırıklığı bile olsa beni eylemeye kışkırtan kitaplar ben onları aramazken gelip beni buluveriyorlar İyiki böyle yol gösterici kılavuzlarım var💜 Kışkırtıcı bir kitap Sizi eylemeye harekete geçmeye zorlayabiliyor En azından bende öyle bir etki yarattı özellikle de kendi gerçeğim yalanım kaçışlarım üzerine düşündüğüm şu dönemlerde Psikologumun önerdiği psikoterapötik kitaptan daha yardımcı oldu düşüncelerimi ayarlamamda Kitap bana acı verse de gerçekliğin içinde yaşamanın yalanın içinde kaybolmaktan daha değerli olduğunu gösterdi Diyor ki gerçekliği seçin Belki her zaman bu geçerli olmasa hayal gücü ve fantazilerin öğretici gücüne sırt çevirmeden gerçekle anlaşmanın bir yolu bulunabilir Kendi Gerçekliğini kabul etmek duygularına savunmasızlığına ve kırılganlığına sahip çıkmak demektir Hislerini yaşamak ve kendini dünyaya açmak demektir Gerçekliği edebi anarşizmi devleti ve politikayı felsefi bir noktadan tartıştığı için herkesin ilgisini çekmeyebilir Fikirleri kesinlikle tartışmalı Ama kışkırtıcı Şeytan tüyü var kitabın Kesinlikle bir şansı hak ediyor Fikirlerine katılmayacak olsanız bile Hatta yazarı ile tartışmanın keyfine vararak okuyabilirsiniz bileSizin de okuma deneyiminizin benimki kadar keyifli ama bir o kadar hırpalayıcı olmamasını olmasını diliyorumDipnot Gerçekleri kabul etmek zor zanaat Hele depresyonla birleşince Ama bir kere kabul ettiğinizde göğüs kafesinize çöktüğünü hissettiğiniz büyük kaya parçasını biraz yerinden oynayabiliyorsunuz Çok uzattım ama okuma deneyimimi ve hislerimi birlikte paylaşmak istedimSevgilerle To be playful is to let go; it is to seduce and to be seduced though perhaps in a small way Finally solemnity is the virtue from which we may someday perish while playfulness is the vice that may yet redeem usPlayful is light hearted or light of heart It means jumping up because you can; it means embracing the uncertainty of landing because nothing can be absolutely certain; it means reaching for the stars even though physics says you'll end up grabbing handfuls of air Air is after all what we breathPlayfulness a vice? In a goal oriented world jumping up and down the street unless paid to do so is seen as a waste of resources energy time sanity We take ourselves way too seriously and yet we defect from the reality of our bodies into the realms of our mindsCrispin Sartwell American philosopher is radical he'd have you dancing outside open to life's thunderstorms as well as to its rainbows keeping it real rather than escaping into or exploring the safe worlds of science media literature where we study or observe the raging of life from the coziness of our protective cocoons His book aims towards affirmation of what is precisely as it is with the goal of having you love the world as it is—black white colour and shades—rather than as it ought to be This means accepting you're addicted to something nasty or accepting that your friends are unpleasant if that's the case or accepting that you'll never learn a foreign language or own a penthouse It means accepting that you have minuscule control over your dealings with the world And so rather than living in imaginary alternative realities where you're a princely other you ought to make the best of your lot immediately as it stands now Naturally Sartwell acknowledges the paradoxical nature of his suggestion on page one his book says you ought to affirm the world unconditionally though he categorically stands against anything that ought to be His starting point is the uandary there ought to be not oughts On a fundamental level Sartwell wrote a book which reuires extensive rumination before its core ideas can be applied and that rumination in turn reuires removing yourself from the turbulent outside world for a while not to mention a general literacy acuired by years of such removal You withdraw to the safe world of his book so it can tell you not to withdraw to the safe world of books An ancient paradox Plato's condemnation of the written word delivered through the mouth of Socrates in Pheadrus is similarly strange when you consider that Plato was such a prolific writer himself and one which chose to deliver his condemnation in written form The best paradoxes serve as irritants that prod us into resolving them—as best we can—so that our level of self knowledge may be increased as a result Or perhaps I should say the best paradoxes are also the best toys Read Sartwell’s book Play with the ideas In some ways this is the darkest holy book on earth This is so much darker in like a religious sense than anything related to genuine Satan worship or Aleister Crowley or any of that shit Although I'm open to the supernatural when it comes to characters like Rasputin or Crowley both of whom especially in the case of Rasputin are historically documented to have nothing less than magical powers I still think this book packs much of a punch since it grabs you right in your intellectual balls while appealing to the religious And make no mistake this book is absolutely an attempt at a working relationship with the religious and its only posing as the opposite This of course fits perfectly with the overarching although perhaps never explicitly articulated as such non dual thesis of the book that the profoundly profane is profoundly sacred At the same time this book is deeply flawed in some ways but I think it kind of had to be What Sartwell is tackling here is extreme in scope to the point where even Mr Nietzsche its intellectual godfather would probably have had a hard time working through its ideas At the same time these ideas are some of the most profoundly beautiful I've ever encountered Dare I say noble?
