As in his past books (Holy Blood, Holy Grail; The Jesus Papers), Baigent attempts to discover the darkish forceshiding within the shadows of faith and ferret out fundamentalists whose dogmatism usually turns to violence. concentrating on the top occasions, he warns that strong fundamentalist sects in Christianity, Judaism and Islam are operating to lead to the conflict of Armageddon, whilst the forces of darkness might be destroyed through the Messiah, who will then result in a brand new reign. All 3 teams wish Jerusalem, the place every one lays declare to a actual spot, the Dome of the Rock, as a sacred position in its background; all 3 desire a nation within which politics are subservient to faith. Baigent makes an identical mistake that the fundamentalists make while analyzing the e-book of Revelation. it isn't a publication of prophecy and handbook for scary sinners again into the fold; it's apocalyptic literature that makes use of symbols as mystery codes for the scenario within the lives of first- and second-century Christians, delivering them wish for escaping from their plights. unfortunately, Baigent's well-intentioned exposé seems to be little greater than a screed opposed to fundamentalism that's in line with a misreading of his primary textual content.

It is not enough to assume that we can use the position of womanhood or ‘women’s experience’ as a starting point that will lead to the same conclusions for all. Yet Anderson’s earlier reﬂections on epistemology suggest a way forward. When she adopts Harding’s standpoint epistemology she suggests something of the complexity of attaining any kind of ‘objective’ truth. To be true, a position has to take account of the variety of perspectives available. A similar method might be used here. Feminism is ﬁrst and foremost a political movement concerned to expose and correct the marginalisation of women’s lives and experiences and to address gender injustice.
It summons me, neither to a diluted subjectivity where no taste of particularity can be detected, nor to the ontological uniformity of one-size-ﬁts-all, but rather to myself, that is, to the irreducible, irreplaceable speciﬁcity of my thisness. ‘The passage from the nominative [of the subject] to the objective cases (accusative, dative)’, Marion notes, ‘inverts the hierarchy of the metaphysical categories’ (2002b: 268). But how? And what may be the implications of such an inversion? Is the project of Marion’s reduction based only on a grammatical whim?
As Marion (1998: 14) explains: ‘I see the house, as house, before seeing (and in order to see) a house; or rather, the as of the house precedes a particular house and allows it to appear as such’. Indeed, intuition always gives more than one suspects – for it presents us the world at least twofold: in its particularity and in its universality; in its particularity through its universality. What I see, then, when I see this or that is never the particular thing in itself but the thing in its eidetic horizon without which that thing in itself would be, strictly speaking, invisible.
