Through the self-comprehension which it continuously works out of itself, our modernity plays hide-and-seek with the enigma of its own possibility. Here intervenes something like a defence mechanism against the Father. With a deep nostalgia of parthenogenesis. The Occident refuses the Father and expels him. It wants to recognize only its pagan and specially its Greek Mother. The internal dynamics of our modernity remains thus hidden.
Numerous are the historical readings which sin against the dialectical process. One remains insensitive with the enormous qualitative differences between the values and the stakes of Antiquity and those of modernity. One refuses to measure concretely the real weight of the epistemological and pragmatic obstacles. One remains blind at the provocative dynamisms. One privileges unilaterally a beam of historical vectors by making the saving of their antithetic conditions of possibilities. One perceives fallaciously in continuity what is only understandable in rupture through a confrontation. The internal dynamics of our modernity remains impossible to understand without the dialectical confrontation and inter-fertilization of gigantic differences.
The Western man was not born by parthenogenesis! Occident is child of difference. Occident was born from father and mother. Our mother is pagan. Our father is Judeo-Christian. The extreme simplicity of such an assertion is likely to hide an extraordinary parallel complexity, the dense network with its tangles of lines of ascent, descent and collaterals. On maternal and paternal side… Indo-European, Celt, German, Slavic, Semitic, Arab… In the improbable meeting between such a mother and such a father two different worlds were going to clash. Two human worlds having each one its language, its history, its values, its principles, its logical articulations, its systems of representation, its forms of perception, its regulating codes, its types of organization, its fundamental options, its pregnancies, its finalities. Two cultural spaces different all the way to contradiction.
The Western man does not understand himself if he ignores the gigantic differences which clashed and inter-fertilized to give him birth. Of his maternal heritage he holds his 'components', of his paternal heritage, his 'exponents'. All the murders of the father, periodically and ritually perpetrated, will not be able to do anything against this first obviousness.
From this inter-fecundation of the 'thetic' components of the Neolithic revolution and the 'antithetic' exponents of the Judeo-Christian revolution will arise, after a very long gestation, an extraordinary deployment of growth and acceleration. The motor of this embrace of such an extreme difference is dialectical. The pagan genius had buckled the human reality in the harmony of immanent plenitude. The 'antithetic' provocative negativity of the Judeo-Christian dynamics had to face this positivity of the 'thetic' pagan perfection.
All occurs as if the Neolithic 'mechanisms' started to function exponentially. A tool producing the tool which overtakes it, a mass of tool system inflates and overflows. An invention provokes an increasingly bold invention. Increasingly enormous are following the technological waves. Substitutes, from now on, of Faith, Hope and Charity, 'Science', 'Progress' and 'Well being' for all.
In-depth, very mainly, this embrace promised to such an amount of dialectical fruitfulness is that between the same one and the other one. The radical Judeo-Christian innovation poses the other one with an ontological, logical, axiological and genetic priority on the same one. The same pagan one being thus radically provoked towards its own overflowing.
A lot of people would like to see in the Christian impact only a sterile contradiction, even a harmful one. They do not see that Christian dynamics is not just an ingredient you can add or remove. Christian dynamics is the absolute antithesis. That is the dynamics of 'no' whose irruption questions radically every dimension of humanity. With the promise of an infinite dialectical creation.
The massive and 'natural' coherence of the pagan thesis tends to be posed as a logical and rational absolute. This natural totalitarian temptation refuses any anti-position, any antithesis, coming from the 'other' of itself. If pushed, It accepts the antithesis coming out of its own bosom and nourished of its own milk, an antithesis finally assimilable and digestible by its own body. Then it gets easy to relegate the Christian 'Other' one in the obscure zones of 'religion' and even of irrationality, as not-relevant in the strictly philosophical space.
