DuraFlex’s most distinguishing benefit derives from its material makeup, as it is not a nylon base but rather a polyolefin thermoplastic polymer. This material has been used in the medical field for years because of its inert, durable and resistant quality to many chemical solvents, bases and acids. With a water resorption rate that is ten times lower than nylon, DuraFlex is extremely resistant to stain and odors, making it our most durable and color stable flexible solution. In addition, polyolefins are much easier to adjust and polish, and will not gum up when adjusting, making DuraFlex our most convenient and dependable flexible to deliver to your patients.
Goethe’s way of reading was neither that of the scholar seeking out arguments to analyze nor that of the historian curious about the ideas of the great minds. No disciple of any particular philosopher or system, he instead borrows in a syncretic way from a number of different and even opposing thought systems in the construction of his Weltanschauung . And whenever particular subjects could not be put to practical use, Goethe’s attention quickly moved on. In a rather telling recollection, Goethe characterizes his philosophy lectures thusly, “At first I attended my lectures assiduously and faithfully, but the philosophy would not enlighten me at all. In logic it seemed strange to me that I had so to tear asunder, isolate, and, as it were, destroy, those operations of the mind which I had performed with the greatest ease from my youth upwards, and this in order to see into the right use of them. Of the thing itself, of the world, and of God, I thought I knew about as much as the professor himself; and, in more places than one, the affair seemed to me to come into a tremendous strait. Yet all went on in tolerable order till towards Shrovetide, when, in the neighborhood of Professor Winkler's house on the Thomas Place, the most delicious fritters came hot out of the pan just at the hour of lecture,” (Goethe 1902, 205). Philosophy apparently held just slightly less interest than good pastry. Notwithstanding this estimation, indelible philosophical influences are nevertheless discernible.
