Philosophy The philosophic spirit of inquiry may be traced to brute curiosity, and that to the habit of examining all things in search of food.  W. Winwood Reade, The Martyrdom of Man, “Materials of Human History” (1872) Men and Women Given the cultural barriers to intersex conversation, the amazing thing is that we would even expect women and men to have anything to say to each other for more than ten minutes at a stretch. The barriers are ancient— perhaps rooted, as some paleontologist may soon discover, in the contrast between the occasional guttural utterances exchanged in male hunting bands and the extended discussions characteristic of female food-gathering groups. Barbara Ehrenreich, “Tales of the Man Shortage,” in Mother Jones (1986) Free Will A man may be a pessimistic determinist before lunch and an optimistic believer in the will’s freedom after it. Aldous Huxley, Do What You Will, “Pascal” (1929) Instinct When the house burns one forgets even lunch. Yes, but one eats it later in the ashes. Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil (1886) Revivalism The Americans have always been food, sex, and spirit revivalists. Edward Dahlberg, Alms for Oblivion, “Our Vanishing Cooperative Colonies” (1964).
