"I would simply ask why so many critics, so many writers, so many philosophers take such satisfaction in professing that the experience of a work of art is ineffable, that it escapes by definition all rational understanding; why are they so eager to concede without a struggle the defeat of knowledge; and where does their irrepressible need to belittle rational understanding come from, this rage to affirm the irreducibility of the work of art, or, to use a more suitable word, its transcendence.”

Intellectualism/intellectual bias—
The tendency for certain agents within fields such as the arts and academia to abstract practices as ideas for contemplation rather than problems to be solved. It can leads researchers to take up research problems principally because they are academically interesting, not ‘real’ social problems.


Intellectual life, like all other social spaces, is a home to nationalism and imperialism, and intellectuals, like everyone else, constantly peddle prejudices, stereotypes, received ideas, and hastily simplistic representations which are fueled by the chance happenings of everyday life, like misunderstandings, general incomprehension, and wounded pride.

Practice has a logic which is not that of the logician. This has to be acknowledged in order to avoid asking of it more logic than it can give, thereby condemning oneself either to wring incoherences out of it or to thrust a forced coherence upon it. Analysis of the various but highly interdependent aspects of what might be called the theorization effect (forced synchronization of the successive, fictitious totalization, neutralization of functions, substitution of the system of products for the system of principles of production, etc.) brings out, in negative form, certain properties of the logic of practice which by definition escape theoretical apprehension.

"The speaker who can 'take the liberty' of standing outside rules fit only for pedants or grammarians -- who, not surprisingly, are disinclined to write these games with the rules into their codifications of the linguistic game -- puts himself forward as a maker of higher rules..."

Bourdieu

"He and his companions wrote many long letters which were kept; in them, they gave accounts of their labours, but none of those written in his lifetime made any mention of miraculous powers. Joseph Acosta, the Jesuit who was so
much troubled by Peru's animals, expressly denied that these missionaries had been helped by miracles in their efforts to convert the pagans. But, soon after Xavier's death, stories of miracles started to abound. It was said that he had the gift of tongues, even though his letters were full of allusions to the difficulties he had to master the Japanese language or find good interpreters. Stories were told of how, when his friends had felt thirsty at sea, he had changed salt water into fresh. When he dropped his crucifix into the sea, a crab brought it back to him. According to a later version, he had thrown the crucifix into the sea to still a tempest. When he was canonised in 1622, it was
proved, to the satisfaction of the Vatican authorities, that he had accomplished miracles, as no one can become a saint without them. The pope gave his official guarantee to the gift of tongues and was particularly
impressed by the fact that Xavier had made the lamps burn with holy water
instead of oil. This same pope, Urban VIII, refused to believe Galileo's statements."

"...that the one says Yes and the other No. And, in all those cases, each of the opposing opinions is probable. This makes Diana say on a certain subject, Part 3, to. 4, r. 244. " Ponce and Sanchez take opposite views, but, as they were both learned, each makes his opinion probable." ' ' Then, father,' said I, ' one must be very much at a loss how to choose.' ' Not at all,' said he, ' you have only to follow the opinion which you like best.' ' But what if the other is more probable ?' 'No matter,' said he. ' And if the other is more safe ? ' ' No matter/ again said the father, ' here it is well explained by Emmanuel Sa of our company in his Aphorism De dubio, p. 183. We may do what we think lawful ac cording to a probable opinion, although the contrary may be more safe. The opinion of a grave doctor is sufficient' 'And if an opinion is at once both less probable and less safe, will it be lawful to follow it, to the exclusion of that which is believed to be more probable and more safe ?' ' Yes ; once more,' said he, ' listen to Filiutius, the great Jesuit of Rome. Mor. Quest., tr. 21, c. 4. n. 128. It is lawful to follow the less probable opinion though it be the less safe. This is the common opinion of the new authors. Is not that clear ?' ' We have, certainly, large scope, rever end father,' said I, ' thanks to your probable opinions. We have fine liberty of conscience. And you casuists, have you the same liberty in your answers ?' 'Yes,' said he, ' we answer as we please, or rather, as pleases those who consult us. For here are our rules...
' Very good, father, your doctrine is most convenient. Only to answer yes, or no, at pleasure !..."

What pissed me off, a little bit lately, I want to share with you now. There is still happening a modern kind of witch-hunt nowadays, also here in da!

Imagine you're publishing your works here, works that reflecting your thoughts about religion, like :iconfiskefyren: is doing it, here.
Then some religious people don't like it and feel having the right to molest, attack, terrorize and offend you (some of them seriously seem to be suprised, for being blocked, because of that! :O_o:)
I think I am going to PUKE! 
In the past they burned people, who didn't agree with them, now they can't. So they try it this way. There is only one difference between ISIS and them. ISIS can kill and does, they can't do it anymore and that is really the only reason, why they don't do it!Censored 

They can pray to the bastard of a roman soldier called Panthera, if they want to. But they don't have the right to attack people, who are not stupid enough for it. My opinion!
People who are defending him, have also have to handle with that agressionSplitting Headache!  Happened to :iconhardlyalive:.



They even made a journal to encourage others to do the same shit FiskeFyren needs to be kicked off the internet.He's insane. If you know him, you'll understand, but just for starters, here's what he does: He makes controversial stamps, which is fine, but he has a terrible habit of childishly insulting and blocking the opposing side without listening to them. So, if you ever feel like challenging yourself sometime, try getting your opposing point across. I dare you :)
EDIT: It gets even better. Upon further investigation (and some experiences a friend of mine has had with him), I've found he also has sock puppet accounts to do his bidding after he has insulted and blocked you for having an opinion the first time. So now you can get insulted and blocked multiple times! Here's the conversation that my friend had on her profile with his sock puppet accounts :iconhardlyalive: and :iconpigeonman6: :http://aoifeelf.deviantart.com/ I'm sure he has more, so watch out all who oppose the mighty FiskeFyren...
EDIT2: Apparently some people don't like to read, like Ephem

"Let us imagine what a Jew- let alone a philosopher- might say to Jesus: 'Is it not true, good sir, that you fabricated the story of your birth from a virgin to quiet rumourss about the true and insavoury circumstances of your origins? Is it not the case that far from being born in the royal David's city of bethlehem, you were born in a poor country town, and of a woman who earned her living by spinning? Is it not the case that when her deceit was uncovered, to wit, that she was pregnant by a roman soldier called Panthera she was driven away by her husband- the carpenter- and convicted of adultery?"

As has been the case in so many other cultures, burial customs were very important to the ancient Greeks. The bodies of fallen kin might be buried or cremated, but in either case it was crucial to place a coin with the body (in the mouth for cases of burial). This was done because Charon, the ferryman who carried the souls of the deceased over the river Styx and into Hades, always required payment for his services.

Those who did not pay were left stranded on the shores of Styx. Many would then come back to haunt their families who treated them so shabbily after death - not an appealing prospect. The same fate awaited those whose bodies were never recovered after death, for example those who drowned at sea.

Those who had the money to pay Charon didn't have it much better, though. They faced eternity existing as pitiful shades, mere shadows of former selves. They were grey, their lives were grey, and it was hardly the sort of existence that anyone would consciously desire. It was, however, where they belonged and proper order was important to the Greeks so this was better than the alternatives.
