Example text

In fact, just as the creative orchestration in serving life sets all the forces of the person at work to promulgate the ever-expanding new avenues of the logos as it modulates infinitely its "rationale," even so the soul taking its own course reverses direction and on its own and from its very own impulse (spontaneity) slowly and penetratingly dismantles rational networks of the creative endeavor, slowly devaluating rationality as such. This course moves toward the anti-logos - that other abysmal extreme of the soul.

It is a quest for the innermost destiny of the human being who has already reached the culminating state of his creative accomplishment as a human being, who has already fully actualized his Human Condition. THE PHENOMENOLOGY OF THE SOUL 7 The soul's quest is a pursuit of destiny as seemingly a new type of self-interpretation-in-existence. " Furthermore, after we have emphasized enough the essential role of the Moral Sense in the creative constitution of the human person who pursues the quest, that is, the congenital role of the bond with the Other in the genesis of the human person, the intial question here is: do we pursue the quest for our destiny within our inner being all alone, or, on the contrary, is a communicative linking of our own concern with that of another human being indispensable for the advance of this quest?

It is the basic genesis of life in its meaningful phases or, to put it another way, the expansive diversification of the Logos of Life that is its leitmotif Within this perspective all the previously mentioned approaches can be seen as fragmentary and biased, important, yes, but in need of reappreciation with respect to a picture taken at the heart of the situation. Indeed, we cannot do justice to this most mysterious phenomenon of the personal life of man and culture without situating it within the crucial struggle for life that the living being carries on while delineating his life-course.
