W. H. Auden – In Memory of W.B. Yeats

For poetry makes nothing happen: it survives
In the valley of its making where executives
Would never want to tamper, flows on south
From ranches of isolation and the busy griefs,
Raw towns that we believe and die in; it survives,
A way of happening, a mouth.

Q. Meillassoux – After Finitude

Philosophy is the invention of strange forms of argumentation,
necessarily bordering on sophistry, which remains its dark
structural double. To philosophize is always to develop an idea
whose elaboration and defence require a novel kind of
argumentation, the model for which lies neither in positive
science – not even in logic – nor in some supposedly innate faculty
for proper reasoning.
