ΒΙΤΓΚΕΝΣΤΑΪΝ – ΑΝΙΧΝΕΥΟΝΤΑΣ ΤΟ ΥΠΕΡΒΑΤΙΚΟ


Καθώς η συζήτηση για το μάθημα των Θρησκευτικών αναζωπύρωσε, έστω και φευγαλέα, το πάντοτε υπαρκτό, αν και υποβόσκον, ενδιαφέρον μας για μεταφυσικά θέματα, ιδού μερικά παραθέματα/αφορισμοί του αγαπημένου μου φιλόσοφου Ludwig Wittgenstein:

"We feel that even when all possible scientific questions have been answered, the problems of life remain completely untouched. Of course there are then no questions left, and this itself is the answer" (Tractatus, 6.52)

«Τhe sense of the world must lie outside the world. In the world everything is as it is, and everything happens as it does happen: in it no value exists – and if it did exist, it would have no value” (Tractatus, 6.41).

“Feeling the world as a limited whole – it is this that is mystical;” (Tractatus, 6.45)

“What do I know about God and the purpose of life? I know that this world exists. That I am placed in it like my eye in its visual field. That something about it is problematic, which we call its meaning. This meaning does not lie in it but outside of it. That life is the world. That my will penetrates the world. That my will is good or evil. Therefore that good and evil are somehow connected with the meaning of the world. The meaning of life, i.e. the meaning of the world, we can call God

“To believe in a God means to see that the facts of the world are not the end of the matter. To believe in God means to see that life has a meaning” (Notebooks, 1914-1916).

“I am not a religious man but I cannot help seeing every problem from a religious point of view” (in conversation with Mr Drury).

Το "αλφαβητάρι της πίστης" του Χ. Γιανναρά πρέπει να αναφερθεί ως μία ιδιαίτερα αξιόλογη προσπάθεια να παρουσιάσει τη χριστιανική πίστη όχι ως θρησκεία αλλά ως μεταφυσικός προσανατολισμός/στάση. Αρκετά ενδιαφέρον και διαφωτιστικό θα έλεγα.
