This section of the site explores the idea that philosophical ideas enter into our everyday consciousness and language. This is despite my agreement with Heidegger that: "The most thought-provoking thing in our thought-provoking time is that we are still not thinking." We often use expressions, through habit rather than reflection or serious thought. Philosophical issues, considered worthy of detailed analysis by scholars past and present, have found their way into popular song lyrics and struck a note of familiarity and acceptance in the listening public - without the benefit of detailed justification and analysis.
Below are some personal musings inspired by a number of such phrases. I intend to add to the list as time goes by. Should any phrase common in everyday language or a section of a song lyric inspire in you some philosophical musings or remind you of the thoughts of some acknowledged great thinkers, feel free to contribute to this page. I invite visitors to this site to offer their own contributions via e-mail or via our Bulletin Board should they feel so moved. You will be acknowledged as the author, should you do so.
