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 los angeles 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 l. a. 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.

Some among the Great Goods cannot live together. That is a conceptual truth. We are doomed to choose, and every choice may entail an irreparable loss. Happy are those who live under a discipline which they accept without question, who freely obey the orders of leaders, spiritual or temporal, whose word is fully accepted as unbreakable law; or those who have, by their own methods, arrived at clear and unshakeable convictions about what to do and what to be that brook no possible doubt.
