Leloup montre que le dieu en lequel Nietzsche voyait une "antithèse de los angeles 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. ..

30 Michael Campbell and Michael O’Sullivan Due to the protean nature of the concept of perception, no scientiﬁc account can hope to be complete, even as a speciﬁcation of the perceptual abilities of our particular species: Can Gestalt psychology classify the diﬀerent organizations that can be introduced into the unorganized visual picture; can it give once for all the possible kinds of modiﬁcation which the plasticity of our nervous system can elicit? When I see the dot as an eye which is looking in this direction – what system of modiﬁcations does that ﬁt into?
It also takes for granted a conception of ‘justiﬁcation’, which requires that perceptual states have content which is independent of the judgements for which they provide grounds. Wittgenstein expresses scepticism about both of these assumptions. In response to the ﬁrst he remarks that ‘[t]he misleading concept is “the complete description of what one sees” …’ (RPP I 984). To the second he says: Does it follow from the sense-impressions which I get that there is a chair over there? – How can a proposition follow from sense-impressions?
When I see the dot as an eye which is looking in this direction – what system of modiﬁcations does that ﬁt into? ) (RPP I 1116) Thus, the confusion that we feel when considering certain puzzles to do with perception are not answered by recourse to physiological explanation: I accept the behaviour just as I accept a process on the retina or in the brain. I want to say: At ﬁrst the physiological explanation is apparently a help, but then at once it turns out to be a mere catalyst of thoughts. I introduce it only to rid myself of it again at once.
