''The challenge of Transcendence is the matter of our time. " I take into account that, Transcendence used to be a very full of life i~sue while Karl Heim wrote those phrases within the mid-1930's. in the province of philosophi cal theology and philosophy of faith, besides the fact that, it truly is constantly the prob lem, as Gordon Kaufman has lately reminded us. 2Por the query in regards to the nature and the truth of Transcendence has not just to do with self-transcendence, yet with the being of Transcendence-Itself, that's to assert, with the character and the truth of God as skilled and understood at any given time or position. Now there are these this day who could declare that any longer discus sion of the latter 1/2 this proposition, namely,Transcendence-Itse1f or God, is valueless and really inappropriate. Such people could declare that the actual logia represented by way of the theological sciences has collapsed by way of advantage of its item having disappeared. certainly, whilst one surveys the modern scene in philosophy and theology, there's a bargain of facts that this can be the case':"" theology of overdue having be come whatever of a "spectacle," to exploit Pritz Buri's time period. one of many purposes for this, we right here contend, is that the richness and the variety of the that means of Transcendence has been misplaced. or even although we don't right here intend to solve the difficulty, neither can we think that such an enqui ry is both most unlikely or irrelevant.

13 Acceptance of the positivist conclusion, for Jaspers, nullifies altogether the authentic basis of scientific insight, namely the transcending quest for an experience of world not as a mere object, but as an intelligible unity. , the intention of "intelligibility," the scientific question would not have emerged to begin with.

O 14 TRANSCENDING IN WORLD ORIENTATION Thus the quest for a comprehensive worldview is, for Jaspers, an inevitable human instinct; as natural as the desire of any animal to be at home in its environment. But what is fundamentally different in the case of man is that "being-at-home-in-world" is "being-at-home-in-a-Unity" which is not possible on the basis of Weltorientierung alone, for the question of world then has to do more fundamentally with the origin of the question of world itself.
64f. This "constant, substantial undertone" of absolutes Bewusstsein is what Jaspers calls the "indefinable undercurrent" (unbestimmbare Unterstr6mung) underlying Kant's first critique and from which any "true" interpretation of Kant must take its bearings as we shall see in Part II. Needless to say, there are many who would regard this - however qualified - as sheer, unadulterated idealism and there is much in Jaspers to support such objections. However, such references can be very deceptive if they are not read in the overall spirit of Existenzphilosophie as something "lived" and not merely a collection of conceptual abstractions.
