Parmenidean Being, however, is its own foundation, which means that the infinite regress to which foundationalism often lends itself—what is the foundation of the foundation, and so on—is replaced by a closed loop: Being is the only thing that participates in Being, and Appearance is either harmlessly outside the loop or is reduced to Being when, instead of talking about Fire and Night, I describe Being with its own essential attributes. Let me expand on these remarks in order to conclude. Self-referentiality in philosophy has always caused problems.
Or, from a completely different perspective: if the proletariat is our species-being, how is it that the proletariat is oppressed in the first place? 0005 The Being of Illusion 21 But the question is particularly acute for Parmenides. I take it that, for him, what is is all there is, whether it be one or many—there are no degrees of reality—and so the question of the origin and ontological status of Appearance is a particularly acute one. It will not do to attempt to say, right off the bat, that Appearance is the way things look to us deluded mortals, clinging to the raft of our opinions after a shipwreck.
For, I take it, the eternal recurrence was an attempt to show that the world of time and change was the only world, and that Being—or, indeed, any static abstraction—was not. ) Here it is not appearance, time, and change which pose a problem. Instead, it is our stubborn Parmenidean nostalgia for Being, truth, stability which poses the problem. 0005 22 Tao and Trinity Timaeus, or free, as in Aquinas. One might say that there is, within Appearance, precisely no reason why Appearance should appear—that is, the question is unanswerable—but that we can appeal to a decision made elsewhere, on the level of Reality, which would account for the origin of time and change: either the Divine is so generous that it cannot help giving rise to floating images of itself, or it freely makes the decision to create a world, a decision made with some good end in view.
