Teleology and Yoga
[more Žižek on Heidegger from Object-Oriented Philosophy by doctorzamalek (Graham Harman) - Badiou and Žižek will unashamedly tell you how great Heidegger is, and yet still leave us somewhat in the dark as to the nature of their debt to him.]
[Thill - February 6th, 2012 on 7:17 pm - He may have borrowed this notion from Aurobindo (I think Wilber has not acknowledged the full extent of Aurobindo’s influence on his writings).]
Sri Aurobindo, himself, borrowed from diverse sources and his vast intellectual canvas, without doubt, is a grand narrative. The overall ontological perspective is supra-rational, and so, the reader and his puny intellect matters little. But, towards the end of a page-long paragraph the Master might surprise by telling him either about his appointed role or incorrigibility and insignificance. His opposition to traditional interpretations is quite forceful at places, but deriving a clear picture eludes as he is dealing with multiple texts.
