The Pythagoreans sought to process this otherworldly wisdom by way of learning numerical relationships, believing them to manipulate the universe, and that those that understand the variety of a specific thing recognize its precise nature. but their quest used to be a hopeless one, slowed down via cultism, numerology, political conspiracies, bloody uprisings, and exile. especially, quantity didn't end up because the finest of mediums; it was once not at all a key to the area of the divine. hence, their contributions to philosophy's inception, whereas far better publicized, weren't the main major. that specific function was once reserved for an strange problem and the flowery response it provoked.
The problem got here from Xenophanes, who had argued that trustworthy fact was once past mortal achieve, simply because no matter if accidentally a person should still kingdom what's precisely the case, he had no approach of realizing that he did, all issues being at risk of opinion. This problem is bound to have a legislative brain like that of Parmenides, and we discover him introducing strategies for trying out the veracity of statements. those equipment have been intended to be conducted via reasoning and argument on my own, with out counting on actual facts or mortal sense-perception, which used to be deemed untrustworthy. cause was once that one school shared by means of gods and people alike.
In time, Parmenides' creative arguments have earned him the identify of the 1st truth seeker and metaphysician whose impact on next thinkers was once immeasurable. Parmenides taught us that philosophy used to be now not approximately claims yet approximately facts, which additionally makes him the daddy of theoretical science—which, apparently, begun as a quest into the brain of God.

Strassers Essay spannt den Problembogen vom klassischen »Trost der Philosophie« des Boethius bis zu Ian Flemings James Bond-Erzählung »Quantum of Solace«. Von der Metaphysik bis zur Psychologie reichen die rationalen Versuche, Tröstung zu »organisieren« im finsteren Tal, das wir alle durchwandern. Strasser zeigt, warum das psychologische Modell zu schwach ist. Es verharrt im Subjektiven. Und das Modell der Metaphysik? Dieses verblasst vor den Wissenschaften, die es selbst inthronisierte.
Daher sucht der Essay nach Spuren einer »Geborgenheit im Schlechten« - einer objektiven Quelle des Trostes und der ihm eigenen Glückseligkeit.
