Further Notes Regarding Epistemic Privacy


To solve the logocentric predicament, one must retreat to the (epistemically) Private because a certain circularity arises when one tries to give public justification for a public proposition, i.e., all propositions because propositionality is one of the defining features of the (epistemically) Public. The Private resists the question of its categorical justification, whereas the Public does not resist such a question. Therefore the Public is dependent on the Private for its own justification.

As the first to totally retreat to the Private, we are also the first to have attained foundations for our philosophy. What grows from these foundations will be the first attempt at philosophy in the history of philosophy. So, in other words, start taking notes, for history begins on this day!

How sweet terror is, not a single line, or a ray of morning sunlight fails to contain the sweetness of anguish. - Georges Bataille
