Right now I’m in a french existentialism class and I feel like I relate strongly to Jean Paul Sartre in Nausea. One of the great themes in his book is that language is a thin veneer that separates us from the real world and that when one understands this it is at the same time liberating and nauseating. With all the speech aphasia issues I have had I feel like I understand what he’s talking about. Just a wierd thought I had. I think a lot about my cognitive state as it relates to the world around me I guess. I get frustrated a lot by my mental difficulties but I also think they give me a unique point of view. Anyone else feel the same?
