Example text

Quand je dis qu’il y en a plusieurs, ce n’est pas un argument relativiste (au sens que la papauté donne à ce terme) sur l’impossibilité d’arriver à quelque vérité que ce soit, mais seulement sur le fait qu’il y a des conditions de félicité incompatibles qui permettent néanmoins, chacune en son genre, de parvenir à des jugements indiscutables (en pratique, bien sûr, toujours discutés) sur la vérité et la fausseté (relatives et pas relativistes) de ce qu’elles doivent juger. C’est par exemple, nous allons y passer beaucoup de temps, le cas du droit (noté [dro]) lequel parvient à se maintenir dans sa vérité et fausseté propres, alors que cette valeur ne ressemble aucunement à celles que l’on appliquerait, pourtant avec le même goût de la discrimination, à des jugements dits « de science ».

Bref, pourquoi la théorie est-elle, chez les Modernes, aussi éloignée de la pratique (rappelons que l’enquêtrice n’a rien trouvé en « théorie du droit » ou en « théorie de la science » qui l’aide à saisir ces trajectoires si particulières qu’il lui a fallu des années de terrain pour expliciter) ?
