Transcendence and Hermeneutics

Transcendence and Hermeneutics

Indeed, when one surveys the contemporary scene in philosophy and theology, there is a good deal of evidence that this is the case':"" theology of late having be come something of a "spectacle," to use Pritz Buri's term.

''The problem of Transcendence is the problem of our time. " I Needless to say, Transcendence was a particularly lively i~sue when Karl Heim wrote these words in the mid-1930's. Within the province of philosophi cal theology and philosophy of religion, however, it is always the prob lem, as Gordon Kaufman has recently reminded us. 2Por the question concerning the nature and the reality of Transcendence has not only to do with self-transcendence, but with the being of Transcendence-Itself, that is to say, with the nature and the reality of God as experienced and understood at any given time or place. Now there are those today who would claim that any further discus sion of the latter half of this proposition, namely,Transcendence-Itse1f or God, is worthless and quite beside the point. Such persons would claim that the particular logia represented by the theological sciences has collapsed by virtue of its object having disappeared. Indeed, when one surveys the contemporary scene in philosophy and theology, there is a good deal of evidence that this is the case':"" theology of late having be come something of a "spectacle," to use Pritz Buri's term. One of the reasons for this, we here contend, is that the richness and the diversity of the meaning of Transcendence has been lost. And even though we do not here intend to resolve the issue, neither do we assume that such an enqui ry is either impossible or irrelevant.

Paradoxes of Freedom is a study of the philosophical and historical conception of liberty. Centering his argument upon the Romantic exaltation of freedom that followed the psychic explosion of the French Revolution, Thomas McFarland identifies freedom as one of the three chief transcendences, along with love and religion, by which humanity orientates itself. The book departs from contemplation of the significance of the Revolutionary motto 'live free or die'; and it discusses the apotheosis of freedom along with its vicissitudes. McFarland indicates, by an examination ranging from antiquity to the present day, both the reasons for the supreme valuation of freedom and the nature of the hindrances, in theory and in fact, that enmesh the realization of freedom. The volume concludes with a sombre assessment of the future of freedom as an orientating transcendence.

‘I should like to show here that the Ego is neither formally or materially in consciousness: it is outside, in the world.’ Jean-Paul Sartre The Transcendence of the Egois one of Jean-Paul Sartre's earliest philosophical publications and essential for understanding the trajectory of his work as a whole. When it first appeared in France in 1937 Sartre was still largely unknown, working as a school teacher in a provincial French town. Attacking prevailing philosophical theories head on, Sartre offers a brilliant and radical account of the self as a product of consciousness, situated in the world. He introduces many of the themes central to his major work, Being and Nothingness: the nature of consciousness, the problem of self-knowledge, other minds, and anguish. This translation includes a thorough and illuminating introduction by Sarah Richmond, placing Sartre's essay in its philosophical and historical context. Jean-Paul Sartre(1905-1980). The foremost French thinker and writer of the early post-war years. His books, which include Being and Nothingness, Nausea, The Age of Reason and No Exithave exerted enormous influence in philosophy, literature, politics and drama.

This first English translation of a series of twelve essays offers a unique glimpse of Levinas defining his own place in the history of philosophy. In today's world, where religious conceptions of exalted higher powers are constantly called into question by theoretical investigation and by the powerful influence of science and technology on our understanding of the universe, has the notion of transcendence been stripped of its significance? In Levinas's incisive model, transcendence is indeed alive -- not in any notion of our relationship to a mysterious, sacred realm but in the idea of our worldly, subjective relationships to others.

Beyond the Now Transcendence of Thought as Time

Beyond the Now  Transcendence   of Thought as Time

The power of now is ultimately misleading as the power of now is still within the realm of thought as time and still within the realm of the psychological entity which is the self.

The power of now is ultimately misleading as the power of now is still within the realm of thought as time and still within the realm of the psychological entity which is the self. In the now the self is still there and is still running the show and it is the self that is causing the problem of duality, division, self-conflict, pain and suffering.Freedom from the self is freedom from pain and suffering. Freedom from the self is found in transcendence of the self which is transcendence of thought as time. Whether that is thought as time in the past, in the now or in the future is completely irrelevant because no matter what, thought as time must be transcended which means that even if the power of now did exist, it wouldn't be able to help you.If there is no transcendence of thought as time which means transcendence of thought thinking in terms of time there can be no freedom.Spirituality has never been about being in the moment, it has always been about transcending the moment. Spirituality is about enlightenment and there is no enlightenment within the realm of thought as time and there never was. Enlightenment is all about the stillness and the silence of the mind in which there is no thought as time. Stillness and silence is found in awareness, attention and meditation and if the meditation is guided by thought then there is no meditation...
