Een kleine reflectie

Philosophy will not be able to bring about a direct change of the present state of  the world. This is true not only of philosophy but of all merely human meditations and endeavors. Only a god can still save us. I think the only possibility of salvation left to us is to prepare readiness, through thinking and poetry, for the appearance of the god or for the absence of the god during the decline; so that we do not, simply put, die meaningless deaths, but that when we decline, we decline in the face of the absent god. (Martin Heidegger, 1966 in der Spiegel)
