Quotable Quickie: Are We Thinking Yet?

The most thought-provoking thing in our thought-provoking time is that we are still not thinking.

– Martin Heidegger (1889-1976)

[Heidegger is dense. I think he’s brilliant, but I’m still wading through his ideas. That’s why I love 8-Bit Philosophy – they make convoluted wisdom a helluva lot more palatable. Thanks for joining the third edition in the Quotable Quickie: Existentialism series for NaBloPoMo 2015.]

  1. The statement is certainly true, but I think it’s better to say that we are thinking about the wrong things. Like how Starbucks made a cup without snowflakes, rather than the fact that people are starving in other countries or how genocide is happening somewhere on this planet.
