On fact questions the very nature of fact and asks no matter if fact are available via following any trust or instructor. Krishnamurti taught that fact comes uninvited, "with glory," while one places all so as, and "in that there's nice sacredness."

Si Marx fascine tant les philosophes, c'est peut-être parce qu'il a si vigoureusement dénoncé l'illusion de "la philosophie", le "discours de l. a. mauvaise abstraction", toujours idéaliste même sous des dehors matérialistes, et toujours stérile malgré sa grandiloquence.

De Nietzsche à maître Eckhart

Jean Yves leloup nous suggest ici deux lectures magistrales de deux géants de los angeles tradition occidentale : Nietzsche, l'athée et Maître Eckhart, le théologien -mystique.

Il tente de remettre "à lendroit" un texte de Nietzsche, ECCE HOMO, souvent cité pour justifier tous les athéismes. Leloup montre que le dieu en lequel Nietzsche voyait une "antithèse de l. a. vie" n'a rien à voir avec le dieu des Evangiles qui est au contraire une puissance de vie et de libération, une claire lumière par laquelle le monde est vu. L'auteur, avec Maître Eckhart, nous entraine ensuite au-delà des contraires, au delà même de Dieu et de tous les Absolus que nous imaginons, vers notre essentielle et silencieuse liberté. ..

This in turn would mean that ulti­ mately the infinity of interpretation is nothing but the old 31 HERMENEUTICAL REASON/DIALECTICAL REASON Hegelian gulf between in sich andfar sich as the motor for the whole phenomenological process and for the whole history of the spirit. Hermeneutics objects that the complete identifi­ cation of doing with knowing and of existence with meaning would be equivalent to nothing less than the end of history in the perfect self-transparency of the absolute Hegelian spirit; and in making this objection, incidentally, hermeneutics is much closer to Kierkegaardian existentialism than to Hei­ degger.

Our mode of being in the world and our criteria for distinguishing true from false are not those that are dictated by 'life' as such, they are not the only or the best ones for life in general. They are those appropriate to a particular form of life, constituted and consolidated as a precise and particular configuration of relations of 43 T H E D E C L I N E O F Tl-IE S U BJ E C 'r domination, relations that could have been and may be other than they are. In fact the doctrine of the superman amounts to a polemic against evolutionism; it maintains that modern man, far from being the culmination of a process of evolution, is in reality a form that must be changed and overcome, not by further development but by nothing less than a mutation.

Paradoxically, however, precisely through its own passion for truth and the pursuit of truth consciousness has brought itself into crisis. It has come to realize that it amounts to only one passion among many, that hegemony has been attained through more or less casual or at least external circumstances. Above all it has discovered that the subordinated passions have been anything but crushed: they avenge themselves for their humiliating condition in the way that slaves do on their master, by imposing on the very consciousness that believes it has them under control a distorted and degenerate logic of their own.
