Hugging the Horse

Philosophy, Literature, Narcissism and Nonsense

"It is said, natura non facit saltum (there are no leaps in nature); and ordinary thinking when it has to grasp a coming-to-be or a ceasing-to-be, fancies it has done so by representing it as a gradual emergence or disappearance. But we have seen that the alterations of being in general are not only the transition of one magnitude into another, but a transition from quality into quantity and vice versa, a becoming-other which is an interruption of gradualness and the production of something qualitatively different from the reality which preceded it.”  Hegel, Science of Logic (§776)
