It is a mere consolation to the timid to imagine that philosophy has died. The fact of
the matter is quite to the contrary. Philosophy will be the last of human things; perhaps
the efficient impulse of the end. That humanity is fated to terminate is amongst the most
basic thoughts, and no more than the most elementary qualification for philosophy, since
to think on behalf of one’s species is a miserable parochialism.
