A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy and education

To me philosophy like "intelligence" or "wisdom" is definitely a moving target, whose essence keeps metamorphosing as one gains more resources to penetrate it better. It seems only natural to me that Heraclitus would intuitively leave his murky manuscript ON PHYSIS in the temple of Artemis, the goddess of the hunt, i.e. the dialectic of living animal instinct with human acuity. Philosophers are after live and very cunning prey, already I began to think of my courses at LSU in terms of safaris and big game hunts, except that more and more they dealt not with ordinary species but with monsters, dragons, still-living dinosaurs of ideologies and orthodoxies.
