Love, cheese, and dead French philosophers
A triologue of three French philosophers on the intersection of intellect, love and how to educate our souls.
I’ve picked up reading Blaise Pascal’s Pensées lately and this statement made me wonder:
“The greater the intellect one has, the more originality one finds in men. Ordinary persons find no difference between men."1
Do you agree?
Intelligence corresponds with an ability to see, perceive, and find things. And not just regular objects, but qualities such as uniqueness, originality, and worth. Failing to see difference in men could mean one is more prone to prejudice and bias.
