A Note

To embrace the spirit of the Enlightenment would not lead to embracing its positivistic children, but to embrace a questioning that doesn’t deal with reasoning qua logic as something inanely human, but to deal with that fact humans, produced through the stochastic processes of evolution, may not be equipped for that cold process but we have stumbled upon it anyway. Think Stansilaw Lem as much as Ray Brassier. Post-modernism wasn’t thus a critique of this, but a cop-out.
