Quote of the Day

[M]en who hold all truth to be relative, or to be a fable meant to uphold an unjust social order, have no purpose to their questions, except to erode the world.

John C. Wright

  1. Yes, if there is no truth, then the purpose to any question is not to seek truth, but to destroy what is.

    Or to be amusing for its own sake. David Thompson had a great post on postmoderism in which he quotes Stanley Fish who argued that theorising and deconstruction “relieves me of the obligation to be right … and demands only that I be interesting.”

  2. And of course these folks never seem to notice that they view “All truth is relative” as an absolute truth. In fact, they insist upon it.

    Let’s see if I’ve got this straight: All truth is relative–except for “All truth is relative.”
