Now maybe I am a philistine....But in my humble opinion , what a lot of twaddle that was.5 minutes to say aproximately nothing and he backs it up with mumbo jumbo about exfoliation of the dutch countryside and a variety of other equally irrelevant wild assumptions.
What a turkey. Shocking garbage. But, I suppose, what is garbage is in the eye of the beholder.
I actually thought he made sense when he mentioned we're floundereding between the loss of religion and moral values.Sorry Sandy perhaps I could have picked a better video. This one was for the Dutch market.
Auch Jim, I rather liked his take on beauty, didn't you? ;)
No need to be sorry at all Rosa.Beauty is bought by judgement of the eye,Not utter'd by base sale of chapmen's tongues.Now that only took 2 lines instead of 5 minutes.
Auch Sandy, you make me smile. I can say nothing but thanks. :)
Rosie, as I've said elsewhere and more than once I'm afraid, an oil refinery is a beautiful thing. So is an advanced gas-cooled nuclear reactor and its attendant systems -giant pumps that blow high-pressure CO2 up around the fuel-stringers, the whole business mercury-lit to the negation of all shadow, hot, glaring, roaring, and loupin with bequerels.Scruton doesn't sound as though he might agree.
Scruton?....much lauded Moral Philosopher, he (in my opinion) always did spout loads of garbage I was required to study his particular brand of claptrap years ago on a philosophy degree, he has had the ear of the 'informed in the ivory towers of learning' and others because he can talk/write for hours and baffle with his bullshit whilst sounding erudite by comparison to others in the same field.The man is a plausibke fake!(IMO)and as a philosophical thinker ranks just slightly above an amoeba but not as highly as two amoeba having a disagreement in a pub toilet. Sorry Rosie, fine words butter no parsnips!
Auch Jim, I was looking into the spiritual meaning of beauty, not architecture but I appreciate your perspective.There never was a truer saying than 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder'.
Indyan, I've never heard him physically but I've read some of his works and he left plenty food for thought. Isn't that the aim of philosophers? I thought challenging thought was their utopia.
