How do we face and overcome the pessimizing  in today’s plumbing? As you know, the development of modern plumbing coincided with the publication of Schopenhauer; and philosophy has been impeding the flow ever since.  True, metaphysics has always needed a roto-rooter, but natural philosophy once was “natural” while moral philosophy actually felt obliged to be plausible.  Thomas Aquinas would never stand between you and your epistemology.

But compare the common obstructions in modern philosophy and plumbing!  Kierkegaard completely dries up the flow.  Nietzsche and Heidigger gush to the right.  Imagine your home’s plumbing based on Wittgenstein’s Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus: by the time you found a washroom….And any Sartre plumbing would be at a complete disconnect.

So, how can we overcome the profound angst in modern plumbing?  Oh, let’s just die.
