Structure and sense
Traditionally the 'form' (idea, plan, grammar, etc.) was thought as a power of its kind imposing its order on the 'matter'. From now emerges the disturbing question: why wouldn't life be reduced to just a highly complexed 'structure'? Give me chance and necessity, the structure will make the rest!
The concept of 'structure', becoming a cardinal concept in the modern knowledge, delivers any thing to articulation, dis-articulation and the re-articulation. In the certainty that every thing depends on a vast combinatorics and can be constructed and de-constructed, theoretically and pragmatically, intelligibly and effectively, in the strict transparent exteriority of space and time.
The concept of 'structure' becomes a key-concept of modern intelligibility. Released from anthropomorphic projections, forsaking the metaphysical plan, it operates the passage from ontology to logic, from being to the understandable relation. A calculable logical ratio, translatable into a mathematical function.
Through something like a 'psychoanalysis' of 'matter' remains only a resistant 'structure'. Every thing else seems to evaporate!
Here, for instance, is water. I can describe this 'matter': water is an odourless and a colourless liquid, etc. I can simply use it for drinking, washing, etc. I can evoke its symbolic richness as fertilizing and regenerating water. I can try to explain it while going back to increasingly small parts, droplets of water, water particles, etc. By doing this I do not leave the tautological assertion that water is water, simply affected by qualities which evoke its richness for me.
Here is H-O-H. It is the same water, but so to speak in its nudity. A simple formula. Through it water becomes understandable. Not any more 'essence' but pure structure. Simple logical ratio which translates the molecular structure of water and which delivers at the same time its law of construction. H and O are not first hydrogen and oxygen meaning substantial 'components'. They are at first symbols like other symbols of mathematical type. No doubt these symbols are not pure abstractions and refer indeed to 'something' which exists in nature where hydrogen and oxygen can be met concretely like two bodies. But this 'something' transcends the 'thing' to seek itself, beyond itself, in new formulas, in new structures.
