[quote]There have been two major decentreing in the history of human thought. Copernicus and Freud. Copernicus took the earth from its place at the center of the universe- in other words he decentred the earth. Freud similarly took mans consciousness from the center of his experience " he decentred man. In other words Freud destroyed the belief that man can have an understanding of himself solely via his consciousness. Freud"s views of the unconscious decentred man from his place as an autonomous free thinking subject at the center of his world.[b] A third decentreing has now occurred The situation is now that man has been decentred this time from his place as the privileged knower of the universe. MAN HAS LOST HIS PLACE AS THE CENTRAL REFERENCE POINT FOR THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE UNIVERSE.[/b] This because the very medium through which man uses to understand the universe i.e. language in fact falsifies the universe. Thus man looses his ability to be a privileged knower of the universe. With the inability of language to capture the totality of the known about the universe man ends up without any intellectual reference points and is thus decentred from his privilege place as the interpreter the universe- he is decentred from the universe. [b]Man cannot know the universe as the language he uses to understand the universe at his previous centre only falsifies it .Mans language is not able to capture the totality of the known about the universe[/b].[/quote]
