Dear friends





Dear friends, I am little out of the blog world right now, because my mind is occupied by the Monadology of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz. Sympathetic man, his somewhat crazy system on how the world works is actually quite appealing. Being also a mathematician, normal for a philosopher of the time, his mathematic conclusions are considered far more realistic than his philosophy. However, this is just todays point of view, philosophy has a little importance for people today.

Anyway, despite of that, I am supposed to do an exam on it and I am little freaking out. So if I don't keep up with you on your blogs the reason is this.

The second picture shows our Crocodile Car in the manner of Richard Scarry. The fox painting is a find in a second-hand, the same like this one. We bought it for Domik's room before he was born and then forgot about it. Just recently, he rediscovered it and want it to have it hanged in his room. The last picture is the Monadology manuscript.

oh my! it seems that you've been quite busy...monadology seems quite "mind blobbing" if I can use this unimprobable term...by the way,after your exam, to ease a bit i reccomend you to read "the hitch hicker's guide to the galaxy" by douglas adams...my favourite theory on life, the universe and everything...!

I still think philosophy has importance. Good luck with your exam.
You'll do great I bet.

Good luck with the exam.

I'm not sure I understand how Leibniz comes into art history (isn't that your subject?), but good luck! When is the exam? And, yes, I agree with Theresa, I think philosophy is still important.

Philosophy is important, no doubt about it. I am doing a general exam on philosophy, no matter what my subject is. It is actually a written paper on a theme.

good luck with the exam, philosophy is important to me but Leibniz is not my cup of tea; in case you need something diverting in between, you should read 'Candide' from Voltaire, very funny and about Leibniz' optimism that we're living in the best of all possible worlds :-)
you can read the book in 1 or 2 hours!!
