Future Man…


The Philosopher as ‘man of the future’

is always at odds with the past.

But his real adversary is the present ideal…

He cannot count himself a friend of current knowledge

but rather assumes the garb of ‘cantankerous fool’,

and becomes a poser of leading questions,

the bad conscience  of an age!

His originality lies just beneath the surface

of the hypocrisy, indolence and falshood

of contemporary mores…

Consequently he constantly refuses to be banished

to the dreary dead-ends so beloved of our modern sensibility.

Is such originality today possible?
