This makes me excited about philosophy

“The imperative of the world, which is the imperative of short-lived pleasures, simply sets down: ‘Live only for your satisfaction, and live, therefore, without Idea.’ Against this abolition of life-thought, philosophy declares that to live is to act so that there is no longer any distinction between life and Idea.This indiscernibility of life and Idea is called: Ideation” – Badiou (Second Manifesto for philosophy)
