Kryzys nowoczesności według Stanislasa Bretona
THE CRISIS OF MODERNITY ACCORDING TO STANISLAS BRETON
Languages of publication
The author presents the critical part of Bretons’ philosophy, which concerns the theological roots of metaphysics and its ideological character. According to the author, during his reconstruction of the contemporary critique of metaphysics, the French philosopher focuses on notional schemas of metaphysical thought as well as on its socio-economical and psychoanalytic conditions. The conclusion of the analysis of the modern crisis is a statement about the redundancy of the notion of principle in (post)modern discourse. Nevertheless, Bretons’ last word about the principle is positive. In critical assaults of its contemporaries he reveals a mystical dimension of negation and indeterminate freedom, which is bound with skepticism concerning the attainment of truth and which he calls the new (postmodern) face of the principle.
