"Slowly, however, more and more people seem to be noticing a personal longing for self-awareness. If pursuing personal coaching, therapy, or meditation seems like a selfish act to outside observers, it’s probably because it is a selfish act, but not in any conventional sense of the word. It is not about prioritizing one’s pleasures and interests over those of others, as is commonly understood by the term selfish, but rather it is about exploring the multiple sides of the self, both good and bad, light and dark, pleasant and unpleasant. Both forms require an inward turn, but of very different flavours. In sum, bringing a curious and investigative attitude to the self and its functioning seems a necessary step on the road to actualizing it."
Coaching. Psychotherapy. Meditation. Spirituality. Self-improvement. Self-love. What do these seemingly different social movements have in common? There are over 10 different forms of coaching, each with countless associated techniques Funny self-awareness image and exercises.

The true role of culture

"Hegel rejected the idea of ‘art for art’s sake’, proposing that painting, music, architecture, literature and design all had major missions to perform. We need them, he suggested, so that important insights can become properly powerful in our lives. Art is ‘the sensuous presentation of ideas’. The point of art, Hegel, realises, is not so much to come up with startlingly new or strange ideas; but to take the good, important, helpful thoughts we often already know and make them stick in our minds."

The Utopia Series. Calling an idea 'utopian' is normally a way of saying it's pie-in-the-sky and not worth paying attention to. Far from it. Throughout the ages, a number of philosophers have put forward some highly provocative and interesting utopias, describing ideal arrangements of everything ...

Aesthetics and the Philosophy of Art

Looks very interesting. Especially the second part about understanding works of art. 

This part examines the interpretation of literature, the expression of emotion in music, and the definition of art.

Best new global city for startups is Eindhoven.

The Intelligent Community Forum, a nonprofit think tank, ranked Eindhoven's tech neighborhood (dubbed Brainport) the world's smartest region in 2011. The one-square-kilometer area is home to more than 100 companies and institutes and some 8,000 researchers, developers, and entrepreneurs who churn out nearly 50% of all Dutch patent applications.

Great post. I especially liked this: 

"We think of play as childish, but to the child, play is the experience of being like an adult: being self-controlled and responsible. To the degree that we take away play, we deprive children of the ability to practise adulthood, and we create people who will go through life with a sense of dependence and victimisation, a sense that there is some authority out there who is supposed to tell them what to do and solve their problems. That is not a healthy way to live."
 
Tantrums might work with parents, but they never work with playmates. In his hugely popular piece, Peter Gray argues that without the freedom to play, children will never grow up: http://aeonm.ag/168VwO2
Children today are cossetted and pressured in equal measure. Without the freedom to play they will never grow up

Ik bleef maar nadenken over het verschil tussen wat Kant zegt en hoe de schrijver van het artikel het formuleert. En ik denk dat die subtiel ogende verschillen eigenlijk erg belangrijk zijn. 

Kant heeft het vooral over de intentie. En de intentie moet niet zijn om anderen uit te buiten of voor je eigen gewin. 

Maar ik denk dat kinderen door veel met anderen te spelen, in eerste instantie wel anderen manipuleren door aan te voelen hoe die ander behandelt wil worden. 

Maar ik denk niet dat dat erg is. Het is de meest voor de hand liggende manier om het aanvoelen van anderen te leren. En de intentie, hoewel heel erg belangrijk, is een stap verder. Een volgende stap in de ontwikkeling. 

Maar als die eerste stap (leren aanvoelen wat anderen willen) niet wordt gezet, en de intentie van Kant alleen theoretisch is, denk ik dat er een te groot verschil blijft zitten tussen wat Schiller noemt instinctive en moral behavior.

Zomaar wat gedachten ...

Long but interesting post.

"Meaning is non-physical connection, something that exists in networks of symbols and contexts. Because it is not purely physical, it can leap across great distances to connect through space and time." 

"Meaning is more stable than emotion, and so living things use meaning as part of their never-ending quest to achieve stability."

"People ask what is the meaning of life, as if there is a single answer. There is no one answer: there are thousands of different ones. A life will be meaningful if it finds responses to the four questions of purpose, value, efficacy, and self-worth. It is these questions, not the answers, that endure and unify."
 
The meanings of life - Parents often say: ‘I just want my children to be happy.’ It is unusual to hear: ‘I just want my children’s lives to be meaningful,’ yet that’s what most of us seem to want for ourselves. We fear meaninglessness. We fret about the ‘nihilism’ of this or that aspect of our culture. When we lose [...]The post The meanings of life appeared first on Aeon Magazine. http://ow.ly/2zVMCP

There is a unique purpose for each one of us.  However, the simple meaning of life for me is to enjoy the life's journey – take care, be good, and be free! ✿
