Christic Science and Its Occasions

Christic Science and Its Occasions

(p.117) Six Christic Science and Its Occasions

François Laruelle

This chapter focuses on christic science and its occasions. The Greek philosophy that served as a milieu for the reception for the christic message, the Logos, is a representational form of thought that applies to almost all of its concepts, including those of theology. To think an event such as the messianic subject, other means and forces of production are needed. Idempotence means that the messianic lived is constant, whatever term may be adjoined to it as Other, since the term to which it is adjoined or added falls precisely under that invariant, to which it contributes only a complement. The chapter first considers the gnostic fusion of quantum science and the subject before discussing the destruction of the circle of transcendental illusion, the generic sciences and the hermeneutic occasion, and the traditional Christ and the Christ-subject. It suggests that there is no Christian science except in a religious or ideological sense, no more than there is a proletarian or Jewish science in the sense in which those words have been used in recent history.

Keywords:   christic science, messianic subject, idempotence, quantum science, transcendental illusion, generic science, hermeneutic occasion, Christ, Christ-subject, Christian science
