Instantia Crucis

„Understanding is, in the end, the scope of science - and science is much more than a mechanical computation bereft of understanding.”
Roger Penrose

A dramatical simplification of man's relation with the world uncovers a functional dichotomy: human condition founds the economy, while human nature determines the politics.

The pre-moderns had hoped to save themselves from living the duality by relegating the economy to the empire of necessity and assigning politics to the empire of liberty. They would approximate the disjunctions with the specific ingenuity of beings destined to evolve beyond good and bad, within the framework of the world allowed this side of Olympus. In the end it was about escaping the context, a sort of excusable inconsequence on the basis of the ideal of happiness, in the pursuit of which anything could be useful, even the reductions of sense. Private and public life, be it under different rules of order, were, in the end, for the ancients the faces of the same coin of human existence.
