Philosophy Wire: Rhinos! Sorry, I meant Unicorns! They were real! No really. Really!


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2016-08-06]: New research suggests that a species of unicorn-like horned rhinos went extinct much later than previously thought – up until 29,000 ago – and they existed along with humans. [1] We did not believe the myths. We did not believe our eyes. (rhinos have one horn you know) So we needed a research. And… WOW! We validated that (slightly different) rhinos existed! Science: The art of validating the obvious. As Wittgenstein said… “Man has to awaken to wonder - and so perhaps do peoples. Science is a way of sending him to sleep again”. Look at the unicorns in front of you. They are real. And you do not need “proof” to believe it.
