Example text

As Derrida says, there is no foundation for the “coming into being” of signs. The continual play or coming into being of signs or signifiers relates to Derrida’s central concept (or “nonconcept,” as he sometimes says) of différance. [T]he signified concept is never present in and of itself, in a sufficient presence that would refer only to itself. Essentially and lawfully, every concept is inscribed in a chain or in a system within which it refers to the other, to other concepts, by means of the systematic play of differences.

Descartes himself was strikingly utopian as he initiated the modernist philosophical project, seeking a firm epistemological foundation in a secular world effectively bereft of spiritual purpose. Contrary to the more cautious Renaissance humanists who previously had adopted a generally skeptical attitude, Descartes believed that the abstract rationality of his method of doubt could lead to indubitable truths, universal principles, and a logically ordered and allencompassing system of secular knowledge.

As already mentioned, the reformers instead proposed that the Protestant faithful could directly and personally understand the literal meaning of the Scriptures. ”32 Yet, because of the Calvinist separation of the secular and spiritual, those intellectuals who focused more on the secular than the spiritual could not be fully satisfied with the Protestant theological reliance on the Scriptures. To be sure, for religious matters, the Scriptures might provide an adequate foundation (at least for some Christians), but if the secular was totally distinct from the spiritual, then the Scriptures could not ground secular truths or knowledge.
