Wine and philosophy

On friday I got into a discussion of Hegelian metaphysics after drinking several glasses of wine with Kt, her housemate Claire and Mark and Rob (friends of ours) I’m not enitrely sure what I said but I think it might have sounded quite important if anyone wa listening to me. The following morning I remembered what my actual point was, which was this. That enlightment philosophy codified the idea of absolutes (in Hegels case the concept of "geist") and that as more postmodern thinkers (I hate that word, "postmodern" not "thinker" that is) pointed out "absolute" and "truth" don’t necessarily have to go together. I’m sure that other people have mdae the same point more eloquently than I but I thought I’d better clarify on my blog now.
