Bryant has a post up replying to my quick post before. I can’t cut and paste the link here but it’s a great post on commentary and how many of us do scholastic approaches. I don’t want to paint with a broad brush and end up painting people who do great work through other philosophers. I think part of it too is the “end of metaphysics” approach which about a repetition of the tradition to find it’s cracks and fissures. I can work with that. But unless I’ve been saved by Christ why should I think Paul has a deeper insight into the kairos of temporality, as Agamben claims, than, say, aomeone thinking through the viccitudes of quantum physics? or any other authority?
