Seldon on Genius.
It is my pleasure, and my honor, as an elected member of the Foundation Encyclopedia Dialectica [F.E.D.] General Council, and as a voting member of F.E.D., to share, with you, from time to time, as they are approved for public release by the F.E.D. General Council, key excerpts from the internal writings, and from the internal sayings, of our co-founder, Karl Seldon.
In the excerpt below, Seldon states his view regarding the value of intellectual brilliance.
“An individual’s intellectual brilliance is of little value – is fundamentally wasted -- if that individual uses that brilliance merely for show, for egotistical display, or to gain status and/or power through the denigration of others.”
“Intellectual brilliance is of substantial value only if it is used in the service of others, for the benefit of all, and all the more so if the fruits of that brilliance are offered to others anonymously.”
