I noticed this yesterday:
Structure, it’s all imposed. We impose order and narrative on everything in order to understand it. Otherwise, there’s nothing but chaos.
It’s from actress Julianne Moore. I only noticed it, because it was quoted in a post by Hemant Mehta.
I agree with Moore, and appreciate her insight. But I do wonder why I am hearing this from an actress. Why am I not seeing it discussed by philosophers?
Maybe it is being said by some philosophers, but not by most of them. When I say or write something along those lines, philosophers seem to react as if I have said something that is obviously wrong.
I expect to write more on the idea of structuring in future posts. So this will serve as a light introduction to the topic.
