Dogma

leave a comment »

Dogma is in the world against dogma. And you will not understand the dogma of any creed, or any faith, if you do not see that you are dogmatic. The men who talk against dogma are always the people who are the most dogmatic. And they don’t know it. The point is, gentlemen, the immersion in the spirit of your own age is unconscious. . . . The going-beyond the spirit of your age can only be achieved by breaking out, so to speak, into consciousness. You have to burst forth into full consciousness. That’s why the church, for example, has always demanded a confession. But the confession makes no sense for people who haven’t lived and haven’t found themselves to be prisoners of their own age. It is only when you have to break the prison of the dogma of your age that you discover the larger freedom. (Eugen Rosenstock–Huessy, Hinge of Generations, 1953)
