    Nietzsche, I love him, but I can never spell him.
    I am less familiar with the others but the common denominator is philosophy, ethics, morality. . .

    I really enjoyed the poem. The verse suits this foggy topic so well.
    Ethics, morality, truth, so hard to define, we can all see the same light but from different angles. A foggy moon and a tempting dark side :) One might get lost staring into the abyss.

    I’ll have to return and have a closer look at those links. Thank you.

    Thanks Terry. Yeah, I have to look him up every time that I want to spell Nietzsche’s name. Glad you enjoyed the poem. All the articles are about ethics and the demand for them – and I love your reading of the poem (the light from different angles, a tempting dark side, etc.).

    The first two articles are quite short and I highly recommend them (Deleuze and Foucault are two of my favourite thinkers). Then I chucked Nietzsche and Spinoza in because they wrote the most definitive books on ethics.

    Thanks again for the great comment and discourse. For me, morality is a way of regulating human behaviour, while ethics are a way of reflecting on human behaviour.

    All the best-
    Dick
