Sample text

Neither Plato nor Hegel possesses such a thing. In ancient philosophy, it was not until Aristotle that there began to be a distinction in philosophical disciplines; that is, not until the philosopher in whom – even if he still depends on a great tradition – can be found the principles of the future decline: system as teaching, and the history of philosophy 34 noica 3 becoming within being as doxography, or collections of opinions. The split into disciplines is, however, fully characteristic of the Nineteenth Century, the nonphilosophical century par excellence, the century of Victor Cousin.

In fact, however, in the light of the circle that we discovered in the act of knowing, it seems to us that it is not a question of the knowledge of knowledge but of the contemplation of knowledge. If the spirit, which as a rule refers to something else and is transitive, must now double back upon itself, then it tends towards a consciousness of self that would not be a consciousness of what it in itself does, produces, becomes, as much as of what it is. The knowledge of knowledge can therefore only be contemplation of self.

Becoming within Being may very well be understood as inherence.
