The question of a science of history

March 4th, 2009 · No Comments

Since we have been speaking of Kantian antinomies tonight, we should cite the one that lies at the heart of the question of a science of history, and the way that the eonic model shows the resolution of that classic contradiction:

Critique Of Historical Reason

A Science of History? What is the relation of our method to Kant’s actual system? There is a direct one in his so-called Third Antinomy.

“Causality according to laws of nature is not the only kind of causality from which the phenomenon of the world can be derived. It is necessary, in order to explain them, to assume a causality through freedom.” Its antithesis is: “There is no freedom: everything in the world takes place solely in accordance with laws of nature.”

From one can proceed to the various parts and pieces of the eonic model to see how the famous third antinomy is reflected and resolved by the differentiation of ideas/terms, e.g. the distinction of macro-action and micro-action:
Man Makes Himself
