Officially Approved Dissent: Alasdair MacIntyre's Strategic Ambiguity in His Critique of Modernity By Matthew Raphael Johnson
Paperback: $7.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
MacIntyre's work is structured around an analysis of human reason. Reason can only function as part of a social whole and that whole creates a self, a personality (rather than an individual, an ego)....

Thus the passage of time is all that any ‘Beings’ anywhere in the universe can have as ‘time’. Under relativity, the milieu of the debate began by Godel, time is not seen as running all through the cosmos and therefore the same everywhere; however, every ‘being’ anywhere will have to invent a time system similar to our own, using repetitive motions or cycles, for the passage of time is all that any being can ever know of time.< Less
