The cause I am talking about, the cause in psychoanalysis – the word cause is in the very title of the Ecole de la cause freudienne – the cause we are speaking of, the Freudian cause, is a cause with another content. It is a cause – not as inscribed in a law of regularity and continuity, but rather a cause which so preoccupied David Hume in the 18th century when he showed that the very term the “cause”, as separate, as primary, was non-conceptual. And, you know that the reasoning of Hume triggered the philosophical effort of Kant himself. I cannot take up again the argument of Hume. And you know, perhaps, that Karl Popper, in our century, has built all his schemology on Hume’s argu­ments about causality I cannot give you a resume of these arguments, but you may un­derstand that, if you have a continuity in this way, you may never be able to pinpoint the cause as separate. So, as a matter of fact, if you think of the relationship between cause and chain, you may understand that cause, the very notion of cause, involves a breaking up of the chain. That is to say, the question of the cause can only appear when there is a breaking up of the chain. So, you may ask, where is the cause at the very moment where there is this lack? I would say, in the concept of causality as distinct from legality, one finds a concept of cause as distinct from law. And it always implies the notion of a missing link. You direct yourself to the idea of cause precisely when there is this missing link. That is to say that discontinuity, and not regularity, is essential to the notion of causality. And, if you think – let me take a shortcut – of the chain as a chain of signifiers, precisely the famous chain of signifiers, well, you may understand that with the concept of cause, the chain of signifiers …. Well, I would put it like that:

Books on the supernatural were published for the growing middle class, such as 1852’s Mysteries, by Charles Elliott, which contains “sketches of spirits and spiritual things”, including accounts of the Salem witch trials, the Cock Lane Ghost, and the Rochester Rappings.

GREAT DREAMS - EARTHCHANGES - CONSPIRACIES

You know JR, I see your knocks at the Church all over the internet. Why must you come to Catholic blog and spew you venom? I think it demonstrates your very great need to convince yourself of atheism and fallibility of the Church. If you knew for certain, you wouldnt have the need to invade those of us who are certain of God and His Church. But, what I really wanted to say is I really do enjoy you persistence, although most of your arguments are typical. Please hang around and hopefully you will come to see the truth. However, I for one, would appreciate less insults and hubris. For example, its kind of foolish calling the popes idiots. This only demeans yourself given that for at least the last 150 years each of the popes could run circles around your intellect. And for the rest of history, they were pretty damn significant thinkers also. These men, while you may disagree with their conclusions, were no slouches of philosophical thought, or theological , or psychological, or you name it! Its not like they havent heard your arguments, and if only they had they would be convinced of your stupendous wisdom. My point is simply that a little more respect around here would be appreciated. You can get as nasty as you want anywhere else. But, keep coming around! Its not like there is anything Catholicism has to fear from your mind that it hasnt already confronted. And this nonsense that the Church no moral authority because of the sex abuse crisis is like saying the US government should stop with any foreign policy because of Vietnam. Its stupid. First of all, bad priests and bishops are not the truth of Catholic Church! The truth of Her teaching is still truth whether or not Her fallible members are sinners. As Chesterson says, "Christianity has not been tried and found wanting, it has been tried and been found difficult" Living up to the standards of the Church is hard, and many fail, but simply because we fall doenst mean the standards arent valid. And yet you and your Catholic bashing cohorts always like to use the sex abuse crisis and alleged wrong of the Inquisition , etc etc. as reasons to ignore the Church. So unless you are perfect like Christ, Im not sure anyone has the need to hear you out either. But we do. God bless you for your continued seeking!
