A very common Manichaeistic (used here for any Absolutist and Dualistic view of the world) reaction to any Relativistic proposal is to say that without referentials it is not possible to live normal life. The problem is that Relativism did not abolish Referentials, it only shows they have limits. To assume that any Referential with a limit must be avoided and feared is in itself an absolute rule, which is exactly what Relativism seeks to undo. But it is almost simplistic to say that /every referential is relative to something/ is the same as /avoid all referential/.
Truth of the Lesser Men is a collection of ideas and short essays by a young male Brazilian called marcio rocha pereira, in a not-so-fluent English.
The subject is the world, society, live and how we live it. Or something like it. It is my attempt at understanding everything that happens all around me, an ontological travel journal of sorts. Which probably translates into, quite simply, my own opinions and thinking.
Nevertheless, i don’t know what i am, or if being something is important to me, or what you mean by “being something” — so that I can hardly answer the questions of what I do, or work with, or any of the other identity-assigning questions. If you are really interested, check the personal info.
The idea of this blog is to avoid rewriting as much as possible, and to write different takes to the same ideas if the need arise, instead of modifying. This is to avoid a constant state of in-progress.
Love or hate, i am always open for criticism (and i'll even accept praise with as much grace as i can manage). Hope you like it.
