Line (actually a straight line), together with point, is a basic concept of elementary geometry. The idea of line is an abstraction that distills our intuition that a straight line is the shortest way between two points. However, we distinguish between a line and a line segment. A line segment includes the endpoints, i.e. the points that it joins. The line through the two points continues beyond these points indefinitely.
French philosopher François Noudelmann took to the piano to demonstrate the intersection of philosophy and amateur music making, the subject of his new book, March 14 in A.D. White House. Noudelmann, of Paris Diderot University and New York University and author of "The Philosopher's Touch," gave a talk and performed a four handed Ravel piano piece with his friend Barbara Glissant, followed by a panel discussion about Noudelmann's book.

“The task of a philosophy of photography is to reflect upon this possibility of freedom - and thus its significance - in a world dominated by apparatuses; to reflect upon the way in which, despite everything, it is possible for human beings to give significance to their lives in the face of the chance necessity of death. Such a philosophy is necessary because it is the only form of revolution left open to us.”

You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.
