Re: new to S. K. group too
- Ms Woody,
Another thought occurred on re-reading your post: Your last sentence seems to imply that you think that perhaps we have no choice but to view the world from the ideological consciousness of our times. We must, of necessity think in the concepts our cultural environment passes to us.
Kierkegaard, I think, would say that we have the freedom to choose how to think and what to believe. Whether K is right about this is another matter.
Do you feel contrained in the way you think by the dominant Western ideology which contains strong scientistic and corporate-consumer-capitalist elements?

In it's ideological form it is hostile to Christianity, but in its non-ideological form it is as ignorant of what Christianity is as it is of the science by which it is informed. Like Christianity it does not know; it believes,and its "truth" is "science." Were it an actual thinking consciousness, and not just the lackluster outer shell of scientific thought, it would be post-modernism. But this is just my take on it, my opinion. I have no authority to back it up, in fact, this is the vary air I breath,the milieu I reside in, and try, at least, to think in.
- Don -- I'll visit the group page and try to hunt down previous
responses that I thought addressed your concerns. I receive/respond
to this list via email rather than the group page, so it's unnatural
for me to include references to post numbers.
