Quotes 2017 #53

"Superman is qualitatively, not quantitatively, different from existing man. The thing that the superman discards is precisely our boundless, purely quantitative nonstop progress. The superman is poorer, simpler, tenderer and tougher, quieter and more self-sacrificing and slower of decision, and more economical of speech."

Martin Heidegger, What is Called Thinking? (trans. by J. Glenn Gray)
