Schematic Diagram of the Four Phases of Talismanic Distortion of the Word "Dialogue" (Chap. IV, 3, D, b.)

 

 

 

 

FIRST PHASE

IRENISTIC PENETRATION

 

SECOND PHASE

IRENISTIC EXPANSION

THIRD PHASE IRENISTIC TRIUMPH: RELATIVISM

 

FOURTH PHASE IRENISTICRELATIVISTIC APOGEE: HEGELIANISM

 

DEGREES OF INTENSITY OF IRENISTIC EMOTION

Irenistic cordiality is set up as complementary factor indispensable to persuasion.

 

Irenistic cordiality becomes a dominant factor in persuasion.

 

Irenistic cordiality is made the exclusive factor of persuasion: relativism.

 

Irenisticrelativistic cordiality is built up as the Hegelian "ludus".

 

 

REPERCUSSION OF

THE IRENISTIC EMOTION

IN THE RELATIONS BETWEEN

THE INTERLOCUTORS

In argumentdialogue cordiality is exaggerated. Polemics and argument pure and simple are proscribed.

 

Irenistic cordiality infects dialogue-investigation and dialogueentertainment, which become dominant; argumentdialogue is merely tolerated.

 

Dialogueinvestigation and dialogueentertainment become the only forms of dialogue that are permitted. Argumentdialogue is proscribed.

 

Dialogue becomes conceived of as the Hegelian play of thesis, antithesis and synthesis.

REPERCUSSION OF

THE IRENISTIC EMOTION

IN THE OBJECT

OF THE INTERLOCUTION

The irenistic interlocutor still admits, though begrudgingly, that objective truth and error exist, that it is necessary to convince the other interlocutor, and that unity is merely fruit of the effort of persuasion.

 

The irenistic interlocutor still admits the existence of objective truth and error and the necessity of persuading; however, he begins to think that the supreme end of interlocution is not truth but unity.

The irenistic interlocutor comes to admit that there is neither objective truth nor error (relativism), and thus it is not necessary to convince to attain unity.

The irenistic interlocutor comes to hold that, through the Hegelian "ludus" of relative "truths," unity is affirmed and progresses.

REPERCUSSION OF

THE IRENISTIC EMOTION

IN MAKING THE

IRENISTIC MYTH EXPLICIT

First explication of the myth: all men are of good will; dissension is always the result of resentment or misunderstanding.

Second explication of the myth: man's good will is such that the doctrinal mistakes have almost no importance; the main problem is to put an end to resentment.

Third explication of the myth: the man of good will realizes that doctrinal mistakes are not substantial. Truth is relative; cordiality itself alone brings about complete unity.

Total explication of the myth: for men of good will, progress in unity and truth is obtained through the friendly friction of relative "truths".

REPERCUSSION OF

THE IRENISTIC EMOTION

IN THE CONTENT OF

THE TALISMANIC WORD

"DIALOGUE"

The talismanic word "dialogue, appears, designating argumentdialogue by antonomasia.

The talismanic word "dialogue" is extended to dialogueinvestigation and ialogueentertainment steeped in irenicism; argumentdialogue is practically excluded. The talismanic word "dialogue" is extended to dialogueinvestigation and dialogueentertainment steeped in irenicism; argumentdialogue is practically excluded.

The talismanic word "dialogue" comes to include only dialogueinvestigation and dialogueentertainment, which are placed on an entirely relativistic base. Argumentdialogue is excluded.

The talismanic word "dialogue" comes to indicate the "ludic" friction between thesis and antithesis to produce synthesis.

REPERCUSSIONOF THE TALISMANIC WORD

"DIALOGUE"

IN THE INTENSITY OF

THE IRENISTIC EMOTION

The use of the word "dialogue,' charged with mythicalirenistic meaning and talismanic efficacy, intensifies in turn the irenistic emotion, and in turn prepares the next phase.

The use of the word "dialogue," charged with mythicalirenistic meaning and talismanic efficacy, intensifies the irenistic emotion even more, and thus prepares the next phase. The talismanic word "dialogue" is extended to dialogueinvestigation and dialogueentertainment steeped in irenicism; argumentdialogue is practically excluded.

The use of the word "dialogue," charged with mythicalirenistic meaning and talismanic efficacy, once again aggravates the irenistic emotion and prepares the next phase.

Interaction of the talismanic word "dialogue" and the irenistic emotion to the infinite influences the Hegelian process in such a way that it develops in an atmosphere that is not only syncretistic, but increasingly cordial.
