Insight from Karl Jaspers via the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy

May 22, 2015

This hit me, so to speak, where I live:

“Limit situations are moments, usually accompanied by experiences of dread, guilt or acute anxiety, in which the human mind confronts the restrictions and pathological narrowness of its existing forms, and allows itself to abandon the securities of its limitedness, and so to enter new realm of self-consciousness.” — Chris Thornhill, via Karl Jaspers (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
