I think what this guy is saying is really crucial.
Unless I am mistaken, he is giving us an example of how view overtakes an ability to see and how that seeing is implicit to every knowable aspect of world.
Again: What is the climate that is changing?
How — logistically speaking — is this change coming about?
Like that old 1960s Star Trek episode where they goto the old west!
The salient question is: Could the landing party convince themselves that the bullets were not real without Spock’s mind meld?
The answer is no. So the bullets would have remained absolutely effective.
So it is with Lyotard’s dicussion of “The Differend”
Namely: could a person make a case to a court that was unable to hear the evidence of the plaintiff’s case? And, what would the judgement of the court be based upon?
Lyotard says that the judgement is always based on “facts” which are missing the evidence and so offers restitution which is always short and fails to compensate for the true damage.
Peace be with you. x
