sense of history is in exodus
Has our human adventure a sense? The question of the sense of our adventure is compromised with the adventure itself. History takes man on board of the folly. The reason of history, indeed, is not in the reason but in the history which crucifies the reason. Cross and resurrection. Chance for the authentic human one who is never as much himself as when he is exposed out of himself.
The search of 'sense' can be double like the double significance of the term itself. Is it about where history is ultimately going to, its end or its goal? Is it about the significance or the value of this very movement?
Is there a sense of History and which is it? At this question one cannot answer by specifying a goal. Each goal is particular and provisional. To build the whole of the history as a single history with a single goal does not go without bypassing the most important. The question of the sense of history is compromised with our adventure itself. It cannot evacuate that of the sense of man. Not the sense of an ideal and abstract man projected in the future, but the sense of the concrete existential man who has to decide about himself in the actuality of a 'now'. History is heavy with significance. It is heavy with the decision of the humans through uncertainty and risk. This exciting and at the same time distressing human risk through adventure… The Word of God itself, along the whole biblical revelation, takes significance only through the human-divine adventure.
The reason wants to entreat this risk. In vain. A project like that one of Vico, i.e. the dream of a 'New Science' seeking 'to fix the eternal laws on which depends the destiny of all the nations', undoubtedly remains an Utopia for ever. Or logic is there and history is not; or history is there and logic is not. It is impossible to embrace historical adventure and the logical necessity. Unless to buckle it up in the cyclic enclosure of eternal return. But history refuses the cycle. It has to remain infinitely open.
Each present 'now' is decisive. It bears sense and consistency in itself. It has not to be liquefied in the projection of a hypothetical future. But each present 'now' can only have sense and consistency in itself and for itself when it is open to an 'other' dimension. A prophet has not to 'repeat' the continuation of history in the way of Nostradamus, but to open a 'now' towards new prospects and the urgency of a decision. To reveal the sense of History cannot be a task of a soothsayer handling small bones or excavating the entrails of history to get a control of the flow of events. It can be only a task of prophet opening - prophain - a luminous space ahead and revealing its transcendence.
The sense of the human adventure is open to an 'elsewhere', open on an eternity, open to another order, open to an infinite 'why', open to a ceaseless exodus, open on an absolute gratuity.
