THE METAPHOR OF THE “LINE OF RESISTANCE” AND THE LAW OF CONTRADICTION
Languages of publication
This essay presents the “idea of God” as a metaphor of the line of resistance – as used in Umberto Eco’s writings. This metaphor is understood in the sense of pure negativity. The pure negative, the pure “not,” is very different from the God of revealed religion. The idea of God is not a proof of the existence of God, but only a device of elocution – in order to give an appropriate name to the thing. Such interpretation is possible thanks to imputing to this idea the law of contradiction.
