Orphans of the One Or the Deception of the Immanence: Essays on the Roots of Secularization
Peter Lang, 2010 - 239 pagine
Through a collection of essays in mataphysics, opistemology and ethics, this book explores the evolution of the idea of the One and Many.
Since Parmenides' dichotomy of One and Many, the One of the ancient cosmogonies has been reduced to a pole of our thought, a sterile identity which has been identified with truth but cannot bring forth nor give order to the Many. The author reflects on how the Parmenidean dichotomy has led, for many centuries after Parmenides, to the metaphysical attempts to reduce the Many to the One, causing unsolvable opistemological problems, and to the metaphysical dissolution of the One in the Many of time, causing the moral crisis of the West. Further, this study analyses the epistemic and spiritual impasse of the West and shows a possible solution to this problem to unearth the forgotten dichotomy, the key to understand millenaria philosophical problems, such as consciousness, movement and causality, which are deadlocked because they all stem from the reduction of temporal phenomene within the framework of a rational thought which is unable to account for the non-identical.
