Pots and Poetry und weitere ungewöhnliche Essays stammen von dem südafrikanischen Philosophen Martin Versfeld.
Pots and Poetry and other essays is a collection of some of South African philosopher Martin Versfeld’s most popular works, as well as three previously uncollected essays.
This professor of philosophy, who took great pleasure in claiming that he would be disowned by most schools of philosophy in the West, finds mundane matters such as pots and rocks worthy of investigation. He enriches and enlarges our understanding of the world by synthesising Eastern and Western and by taking a stance on the environment that is far ahead of its time.
“The integrated man spontaneously recognises the integrity of things. Integrity means wholeness, the quality of being the image of the One, the quality by which a flower or a mouse or a pebble asserts, against all the powers of nothingness, that it has the dignity of actuality. We have gone as far as we know how in the disintegration of matter, and since what we do to matter we do to ourselves, we are achieving a peak of human disintegration.”
