 The philosophical aspects of poetry


Image Hosted by ImageShack.us





Kant: Welcome my friends, today we are gathered to discuss
‘The philosophical aspects of poetry' which has caused such a fuss!

Matt: There is a philosophy in poetry
I am sure Plato would agree with me?

Plato: To write poetry do we need hands?
If we had no arms, then does this theory stand?

Socrates: No
I am sure John Stuart Mill, will gladly show?

JS Mill: We don't need hands to write down our words!
For words can be spoken, so poetry without hands is absurd!

Russell: Ok, so there can't be poetry if we have no tongue?
Engels: Well, we can still have poetry, as we can always hear someone

Kant:  Because without, hands or speech we can still hear poetry!
Sartre: But what if we have no ears as well? Then we can't hear, write or see!

Nietzsche: That's a very good point, but surely poetry is from the heart?
Locke: The heart is but an organ, it is the mind that is the essential part!

Augustine: If we say poetry is from the heart, can animals do poetry?
Aristotle: No, as only humans have ability to think and have rationality!
Marx: This is all very interesting, but we all view the world differently!

Epictetus: Are we now then saying that poetry depends on our culture?
Bergmann: Well that all depends on ones theory on ‘Nature versus Nurture.'

Matt: We can safely say that us humans have the ability to express
And this is something we should all address!

Matt: Because we don't understand the language of other species
Doesn't mean that poetry can't come from say for example ‘leeches'?

Matt: Poetry is nothing
If nothing is living.

Matt: Therefore poetry is a living emotion. Enough said!
Matt: Poetry only ceases when we are dead.

Kant: Well said Matt, you are indeed a poet and philosopher
This ends our discussion. The debate is over!
