un poco de belleza posmoderna, parte II

"I think that the Socratic idea of self-knowledge is replaced among contemporary intellectuals by the Nietzschean idea of self-creation, so that the life of the intellectual is not a matter of finding out what has been inside himself or herself all the time; it's a matter of becoming someone new.

And the same for societies: Social progress is not a matter of discovering the essential nature of the State, or of one's Nation, or of one's society; it's a matter of becoming a more rich and interesting society than in the past."

Richard Rorty
