Example text

From philosophy’s own immediate point of view, of course, this is a higher form. But when he speaks about the ‘content’ of Truth, as distinct from its various potential forms, he is speaking trans-philosophically. Speculative philosophy is philosophy lifted up to look back on itself, as it were, from the outside: acknowledging that it is, after all, the higher form only from its own point of view, and not absolutely. It is, in other words, the sort of philosophy which is modest enough explicitly to admit the ultimate incommensurability between its own authority and that of folk religion.

Of course, it values precision. But its primary interest is an altogether more general one: it is interested in the necessary conditions for the best possible sort of conversation, generally.
