World Philosophy Day
Hey – today is World Philosophy Day!
To celebrate a photograph taken in 1944 after Picasso’s play “El deseo pillado por la cola” Standing from,left to right: Jacques Lacan, Cecile Eluard, Pierre Reverdy, Luoise Leiris, Pablo Picasso, Zanie de Campan, Valentine Hugo, Simone de Beauvoir, Brassaï. Sitting from left to right: Jean-Paul Sartre, Albert Camus, Michel Leiris, Jean Aubier.
Rumor has it that the dog featured in the center of the photo was the true architect of the idea of the existential attitude — the sense of disorientation and confusion in the face of an apparently meaningless or absurd world. As all good dog trainers know, this is a concept most dogs are quite familiar with.
