DOWNLOAD ½ This Life A profound original and accessible book that offers a new secular vision of how we can lead our lives Ranging from fundamental existential uestions to the most pressing social issues of our time This Life shows why our commitment to freedom and democracy should lead us beyond both religion and capitalismIn this groundbreaking book the philosopher Martin Hägglund challenges our received notions of faith and freedom The faith we need to cultivate he argues is not a religious faith in eternity but a secular faith devoted to our finite life together He shows Swedish MistI find it odd and oddly annoying that Martin H gglund should choose to present his otherwise sensible philosophy in terms of faith He apparently intends to establish philosophical thought as a sound basis for ethics without reference to religion and its supposed revelations of ultimate truth On the face of it he would like to replace religious faith with faith of some other sort My uestion is Why Although not all religions rely on faith Christian insistence that faith is euivalent to religion has penetrated global consciousness But even among Christians there is no agreement on what constitutes faith except the communal profession of some verbal formula Since Hagglund does not propose any alternative credal statement to the Christian religion or any other it is clear that he is not using the term faith in any recognisably religious senseInstead H gglund constructs a straw man His essential claim is that the common denominator for what I call religious forms of faith is a devaluation of our finite lives as a lower form of being This may be Those religions which emphasise the existence of some other world than the universe we inhabit in which perfect justice is achieved human defects are corrected and happiness reigns do implicitly devalue not just human beings but also all that exists But not all thought which accepts the possibility of a reality beyond expression perhaps even beyond perception insists upon such a position Yet such thought is religious in the specific sense that our consciousness itself implies an impenetrable mystery about our existence and its place in the cosmos Many for example myself included consider literature as a religion Our liturgy consists principally in our acts of reading and writing These acts are exploratory but they are never decisive Language that which exists within us and around us and yet is not part of us is our God This is a God which we use mercilessly but which also uses us with the same absence of care We may reverence our God but we do not idolise it We respect the immense power of language and we continuously try to outwit it We are bound to fail not because we are finite but because the God of language our own creation is infinite in its potential We will never exhaust its possibilities nor be able to control either its use or the way in which it connects to the world of other things What we do not have is faith in language We mistrust it because it lies about the world which is not constructed according to its principles We try relentlessly to pin it down by definition and explanation to no avail as we find that words can only be defined by other words Through language we create law and society and prosperity We also create hydrogen bombs and gas chambers and racist mobs We may pretend that we are free in our use of language But the reality is that we are trapped by it and within it It is the source of our unfreedom something Hagglund would like mistakenly to attribute to religionImportantly there is no creed of the God Language Language is undoubtedly there it exists but eually it is beyond our comprehension in its scope its future or even when it first appeared among us It is eternal but there is nothing about language which can be distilled into fundamentals of belief Hagglund would reject this however all religious visions of eternity as we shall see ultimately are visions of unfreedom he saysH gglund doesn t like the eternal as a fundamental principle a sort of credal premise of his secular faith The problem is not that an eternal activity would be boring but that it would not be intelligible as my activity In this he is simply too prejudiced by faith to be argued with Language will never become boring I challenge H gglund to even express the feeling of boredom without it How free would he be without the eternity of languageSo while I agree with H gglund s thesis that religious faith is bad for humanity and bad for existence it is faith not religion which is the issue There is no need for a secular faith because faith is the problem to be solved not allowed to expand Faith kills regardless of its content It kills intellectually by attempting to fix what the world is in language It s kills biologically by insisting upon natural relations of power which are expressed in terms of language And it kills spiritually by implying that there is some endpoint at which the exploration of language will reach its goalIn short it appears that H gglund is preaching to a philosophical or religious choir that feels itself deficient without some sort of faith There is no valid reason to do this In fact he is implicitly justifying the acts of religious faith as eual competitors to his secular faith A mis directed and self defeating argument therefore The world needs yet another faith as much as it needs another SUV Mrs Johnson Takes Her Sissy Stepson Futa MILF in Charge Book 1 original and accessible book that Srimad Bhagavata
