Note on Precision

A lack of precise knowledge or a specialized terminology does not signalize a lack of knowledge.

If knowledge means closeness, any flourishing terminology goes far away from the things that should be known.

The knower is far away from them, but contrary to his dominating position he acquires as the master of precision, his discourse becomes lifeless and, for this reason, his domination is rather the expression of his retreat from the knowledge of things.

The retreat is the witness of a defeat. Being defeated by things means to retain from their appearance only the way by which they oppose their irrationality to a rational being. Therefore, the rationality of things is terminologically recreated by the man, without being able to grasp what is thoughtful or rational in their life.
