CHAPTER THREE The Metaphysical Ground of World Order Thinking . . .
metaphysics determines the history of the Western era. Western humankind, in all
its relations with beings, and even to itself, is in every respect sustained and
guided by metaphysics. — Heidegger, Nietzsche, IV In the preceding chapter I
have discussed briefly various approaches to world order thinking and have
characterized this thinking (speaking generally) as normative, technocratic, and
ideological.1 Most ...

101 Ps.-Dionysius assumes this doubleness in the world order, and hence in
Scripture, and inserts into his Ninth Letter a theory of double theologia, which will
be presented in detail below. One thing is notable here and worthy of emphasis.
The theory of same ratios which we found in our brief analysis of the metaphysics
of hierarchy above seems to be an adaptation of the Neoplatonist Timaeus
interpretation. For those ratios of same harmonia which in Timaeus' account bind
together ...

Corporations control all basic resources of the world, all the governments and institutions, and prevent us from solving humanity's problems. Their New World Order plan is the global "prison planet" that Hitler was aiming for.

X. T H EORY OF KNOW LEDGE Knowledge is a special case, but a unique one (
since the monad is itself the knower), of the general process in which a
metaphysical individual is related to the order of universal harmony and to the
existing world involving that order. Metaphysics is therefore prior to epistemology
in Leibniz's thought; knowledge is of a real world order greater than ourselves, in
which both the objects known and the principles involved in our knowing them
are grounded.

The differences between the Chinese language and Greek and other Western
languages help explain why Chinese metaphysics are not particularly
metaphysical in the sense in which Greek or Western metaphysics are
metaphysical. For example, Confucians do not debate about the dichotomy
between life and death, the body and the soul, the separation of the sensible from
the insensible, or the practical from the transcendental.29 A relevant concept tied
to the Chinese love for ...

Morality, religion, metaphysics, all the rest of ideology and their corresponding
forms of consciousness, thus no longer retain the semblance of independence.
They have no history, no development; but men, developing their material
production and their material intercourse, alter, along with this their real existence
, their thinking and the products of their thinking. Life is not determined by
consciousness but consciousness by life. (ibid.: 6) The ideas of the ruling class
are in every epoch ...

Let me stress that the Nietzschean doctrine has only the character of an
announcement: Nietzsche is not putting forward an atheistic metaphysics, which
would imply the claim to describe reality correctly as something from which God
is excluded. This claim, like the claim advanced by the faith in the truth discussed
in The Gay Science, would still entail a form of faith in the moral God as the
founder and guarantor of the objective world order. Only if we keep this in mind
can we recognize ...

They specify classes whose members are not distinguishable from one another
by any qualifying differences belonging to the invariant system of qualities
mentioned above.1 In Aristotelianism, as Aquinas understood and accepted it,
this empirical world order is taken to be based on a metaphysical deep structure
of reality. It is thought that there must be something which explains the manifest
fact of the invariant sets of qualities exemplified in objects, which are divided into
