Poder vs. Autoridad

Más valioso que el poder, enseña Guenon, es la autoridad. Fundada en la preeminencia inclaudicable de los valores espirituales y morales, puede darse y se ha dado la paradoja, de que las grandes autoridades carezcan completamente de poder, y que los poderosos no tengan ninguna autoridad.

Historia y Filosofía

"When philosophy paints its grey in grey, then has a shape of life grown old... The owl of Minerva spreads its wings only with the falling of the dusk."

For Hegel, philosophy always " comes on the scene too late. History can never be comprehended except in retrospect; what philosophy, as the wisdom of hindsight, grasps of the world's reality is what is already in the process of disappearing, even as it is grasped."

Lack of Ethics

The court remains the only federal court not covered by the Code of Conduct for United States Judges. The court and the country would be better off if the justices were responsible to the code. Even without a duty to the code, each justice has a duty to its principles. Each has a duty to promote the judiciary’s impartiality. That means avoiding any activity that could raise reasonable doubts about his or her ability to decide cases fairly.

Contending Modernities

On November 18-19, dozens of scholars, religious leaders, business people, and intellectuals will gather in New York for the public launch of a new, multi-year project called “Contending Modernities: Catholic, Muslim, Secular.”

Based on the premise that Catholic, Muslim, and secular modernities each bring distinctive resources to the task of illuminating and resolving an array of characteristically modern problems, the project will examine the dynamic co-existence and competition of these “multiple modernities”—as well as the conflicts and contentions among them—with the aim of opening “new paths for constructive engagement between and among religion and secular people and institutions.”
