    (seen here) doesn't even mention "halcyon days" or "hakyonisch" (unless I read it too quickly.) But basically, I think he was saying that he had written his work in a certain esoteric style and only those of a certain refined outlook could hope to understand it - and too bad for the rest of you. My kind of guy. :-)

    "A famous person once said, 'You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time.' But as I once said, "If you don't teach them to read, you can fool them whenever you like." – Max Headroom

      Immanuel Kant he ain't.

      Kant is known for his theory that there is a single moral obligation, which he called the "Categorical Imperative", and is derived from the concept of duty. Kant defines the demands of the moral law as "categorical imperatives". Categorical imperatives are principles that are intrinsically valid; they are good in and of themselves; they must be obeyed in all, and by all, situations and circumstances if our behavior is to observe the moral law.
