Overheard at SLC: Oct 31–Nov 5

Does every quote, every utterance, need context? Kant asserted that context and particularities warp the truth (and, therefore, our ability to understand the truth)*, and this week’s “Overheard at SLC” submissions (especially our bonus “Teacherism”) incline me to believe him. (Yes, I totally realize the irony of asserting these submissions as a priori when they not only require language to communicate, but also provide locations. And the fact that Kant uses language to assert the “truth.” Life is full of Kant-radictions… I actually deeply despise myself for writing that.)
