Philosophy Wire: Oedipus and the curse of knowledge.


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2016-06-27]: Prometheus (Hesiod). Oedipus, the man who defeated the Sphinx with his knowledge. Midas and Silenus. Adam and Eve. They all had something in common: They longed for or possessed knowledge. And knowledge destroyed them. Our myths warn us persistently. And we choose to ignore them. We want to "learn". Stop thinking. Learn to simply accept the cosmos. Stop analyzing. Just be… Only in the darkness do we see dreams even though they scare us in the beginning.
