    Also, I have to say that a metaphysics of openness or even a pragmatic commitment to 'play' and irony, seems to me something that is only biologically, socially, culturally a possibility at this time. Clearly, in more dangerous times, in a period with no promise of epic productive powers, pople were bound to seek certainty and security, and hence SOM was a product of this. Now we can consider it. It goes along with the uniqueness of modern individuality. But dangers from global inequality, and the barbarism being exercised to maintain it.

    I certainly agree that the turn towards pragmatism is contingent upon, and of a dialectical piece with, Platonism's rise.
