Basic notions of metaphysics series continues, this time with a twist. We won't be content with simply giving an exposition of the metaphysical notion of infinite but use it as an example how traditional concepts get inverted. The infinite is very good example of not only that, but also of one very important thing: deconstruction of metaphysics is never an annihilation, as its proponents would like you to believe, but always an appropriation and inversion. So lay half an hour of your life at the altar of Kali the destroyer of de-constructors and learn how basic notions of metaphysics are inverted into illusions.
In this podcast we inspect the differences between traditional and modern understanding of evil as metaphysical notion; we point out the crucial difference in mentality displayed by this differentiation - the one considering man's place in the world.
It is customarily to take the traditional notion of Evil as corruption of Good, as naive, not realistic enough or plain childish.
We argue that this belief is a tell tale sign of modernity coming to blows with its historical ancestry, because this idea dawns only when attempt is being made to understand evil as a real, positive, principle, i.e. in itself, as opposed to trying to understand it on the basis of the reality of Good, whose privation it in fact is.
Through some examples, a bit of analysis and even an anecdote or two, we point out how dangerous, vain and wrong headed this belief is.
