Truth Has a Name

January 24, 2013

Truth is not Nietzsche’s “movable host of metaphors, metonymies, and anthropomorphisms” made fixity by long use. Truths are not mere “illusions which we have forgotten are illusions” or dead metaphors, “coins which have lost their embossing and are now considered as metal and no longer as coins.” Else life itself is Macbeth’s “tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” Then Kant would be right and history would be nothing more than the “idiotic course of things human.”

But Adam named the fruit. Then he ate one that he shouldn’t have eaten. And then he died. But the Last Adam raised him to new life.
