Pygmalion



"What is your aim in philosophy?
- To show the fly the way out of the fly-bottle."
(Wittgenstein: Philosophical Investigations (309)
_____________________________________

i dislike the analogy
it is a "fly bottle"........therefore the
fly belongs there....in the bottle
and doesn't need anyone's help
he is where he belongs
i relate to the fly

and one more thought on this subject
it was Wittgenstein who made the analogy........so he related to the fly as well.....so the only one he should be fixing is himself........especially if each one of us is responsible for our choices in life........be they intended or the result of the limbic brains interference

MBTI-INTJ
Pygmalion project for idealists: one thing you should not do.......couched in the form of philosophy/psychology....psycho-babble
