A Quick One While He's Away

Quick update: I half-recommended Voegelin's book before actually reading it. Now halfway through this particular (long) essay, I think his quest to link gnosticism to Naziism and Communism is a bit of a failure. Kind of interesting, though.

In reading this I've discovered what anyone who's studied philosophy already knew: These guys spend an awful lot of time on "Being." Plato was talking about Being 3000 years ago. Maybe time to move on? Maybe move on to the next step after Being?

No?

We're just going to stay on that, huh?

For how long?

Well, admittedly, occasionally they will shake things up and talk about Knowing.

I've decided to publish my own book on my own philosophical excursions. A tentative table of contents follows; don't hold me to this.

Introduction .......................................... p. ix

Part 1: Being ........................................... p. 1

Part 2: Knowing ...................................... p. 335

Part 3: The Knowingness of Being .......... p. 412

Part 4: The Beingness of Knowing .......... p. 525

Part 5: Real World Applications ............. p. 633

Index ........................................................ p. 636
