Maximizing Differences

July 8, 2010

Douglas Knight in The Eschatological Economy (p. xix)

All intellectual effort is in the service of life. It is therefore about comparing different definitions of life. Since we have to compare ways of life, it is important that we say how different these are. We really are engaged in saying that one way of being human is considerably better than other ways. This does entail that they can be compared. The best way to compare them is to maximize, not minimize, the differences between them. We can compare life with God to life without God.
