Sample text

Although powerful, the method ultimately fails, for any theory offers a description of things and their relations, and the world is always different since it is not a thing or combination of things. Furthermore, the process of rational empiricism in failing to provide a true description of the world has itself gradually brought to our notice the inability to describe the world independently of the language used to make the description. Rational empiricism thus starts with the assumption xxxviii P RO L O G U E that there is a world which can be accurately described and uncovers our inability to provide such a description.

As the result of such arguments the proliferation of things would appear to be contained. Instead of being committed to an array of different particulars each of which might be said to exist, we can say there exists an x such that x satisfies the conditions of being a house and a building and an environment and a structure and a habitat. Or there exists an x such that x is a cup, and a handle and bowl. Although in such an account we still use words which seemingly name things, these are not names of the object but are hidden descriptions.

Instead ‘openness’ indicates a site of possibility: a space that is not a thing or combination of things but is at the same time full. It might be called an undifferentiated flux, so long as the description does not encourage us to imagine that its character has after all been captured, thereby reducing it to a thing once again, even if on this occasion it is a moveable, changeable sort of thing. At the outset, there remains a risk attached to the introduction of the term ‘openness’. For as with all such terms our present habitual inclination is to provide a particular content, and thereby use the word as if it referred to a thing.
