Semantics, Epistemology & Metaphysics

my teacher would criticize
the Capitalization
& the categorical Prussian idealism

Thesis - Antithesis - Synthesis
when it turned from the spiritual
to the physical
it revealed the naked horrors
of capitalism & historicism

idealism at its worst
is just absurd
materialism at its best
is dangerous

we all have to live
with the consequences
of someone else's social constructions
& postmodernist humour

The Middle Way
Madhyamaka
the leading theoretician
Nagarjuna
deconstructs the ontological terms
describing reality
the 'subjective' experience has been named
'talking to the dead'
the 'objective' experience
(The View from Nowhere)
will be described
in folk-psychological or philosophical
communal concepts

the ontological status
of the experience
is bracketed for now
& passed over in silence

not because we cannot speak of it
but because there is too much
waiting to be said
