Z is for Zeitgeist

The Rogue Speaks:

We're at the end of the alphabet for this round of Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday, and I'm sure there are a lot of fabulous Z words that her participants have come up with.  My word for this week was going to be Zeitgeist.  The Zeitgeist is the spirit of the time, or age, if you prefer.  This refers to the intellectual fashion or the most prominent school of thought that creates  current cultural norms in a particular period of time.  It sounds like a pretty wonderful word, if you are into philosophy, and is probably great fodder for debates.  I did a little studying up on it, and got a headache.  Did I really want to bore and confound my readers with the views of philosophers they have probably never heard of?  Did I want to bore and confound MYSELF??

Instead, I have a little video to warm your heart:


I'll see you on Saturday for our Saturday Centus!

I always thought that Zeitgeist is a funny word because it means a ghost of time in German, some could also translate it into Spirit of time, because Geist means spirit and ghost, lol ! The little video is so touching !

Dogs are better than most people.

Judie: I have studied Hegel and others who have advanced similar theories. I prefer to simply live my life by recognizing that Nature has an order and design to it, and if we don't fight it, our lives are greatly enhanced.

Also, I agree with bluzdude. "Dogs are better than most people."

Art is for thinking outside the box. What I've seen here is really unique. I like it a lot.

Jenny said...

You are so smart, Judie.

I really admire how you share your knowledge.

I don't even know this word!

But now I do!

I hope I can remember it for scrabble!

Or to randomly throw into a conversation and be impressive!

Sweet video!
