Description

A painting that reveals (alethe) a whole world. Heidegger mention this particular work of Van Gogh's in
"The Origin of the Work of Art".
"Aletheia, disclosure thought of as the opening of presence, is not yet truth.
Is aletheia then less than truth? Or is it more because it first grants truth as adequatio and certitudo, because there can be no presence and presenting outside of the realm of the opening?"

"A guilty conscience needs to confess. A work of art is a confession." - Albert Camus “Art exists because life is not enough.” — Ferreira Gullar

"Enlightenment is a destructive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It’s seeing through the facade of pretence. It’s the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true."
