The Axiological Cogito

Show Summary Details


This chapter begins by introducing the “axiological cogito”, the certainty that there is a minimal sense and an elementary finality in certain points of the world, in the consciousness of those who seek sense and finality precisely insofar as they seek them. This chapter demonstrates the intertwinement of sense and finality and argues that it is contradictory to deny them in general.
