I was just editing a Santayana reference or two at K. I confirmed that my favorite “quote” was among my God quotes:
And I added “attributed to”.
Still, I need to clarify further:
|What I heard (as an undergraduate) was that that paradox epitomized Santayana’s philosophy. I heard it as an “as though” Santayana had actually said it: I never heard that he had actually said it, in those exact words. Neither have I read him saying it. Someone else, not Santayana himself, was summarizing “Santayana”.|
I was saying just yesterday: I love Santayana, but I haven’t read much Santayana.
Of course it’s the “meaning” that’s important: I’ll return to add a comment or two. But, unless you already see what the paradox suggests, there’s not much hope of communication.
