The Base Of All Metaphysics Analysis

AND now, gentlemen,

A word I give to remain in your memories and minds,

As base, and finale too, for all metaphysics.

(So, to the students, the old professor,

At the close of his crowded course.)

Having studied the new and antique, the Greek and Germanic systems,

Kant having studied and stated--Fichte and Schelling and Hegel,

Stated the lore of Plato--and Socrates, greater than Plato,

And greater than Socrates sought and stated--Christ divine having

studied long,

I see reminiscent to-day those Greek and Germanic systems,10

See the philosophies all--Christian churches and tenets see,

Yet underneath Socrates clearly see--and underneath Christ the divine

I see,

The dear love of man for his comrade--the attraction of friend to


Of the well-married husband and wife--of children and parents,

Of city for city, and land for land.

.: :.

On receiving the base of all metaphysics
And what of I,
Thought the student,
Who is born out of the marriage now broken,
Who has quested for the plaudits in the evening.
What of I who has wondered of his own marriage,
Who is this person?
Still I love my children and hope that they love me,
but what do they know of love?
Freedom I have sought, but lied.
And how can I be free,
Not known as me, but as my efforts and my would-be?
Now at least I will start, with honesty,
To let be known the real me.
Start with fear that I will bee seen and rejected,
Fear that when known I will be known to be
The person who is far from the base, and the finale,
Of all metaphysics.
