Example text

According to Protagoras it is the measuring that decides whether something is or is not, and what it is or is not. So let us look at how man can go about this measuring. The obvious place to start such an investigation is with the discussion of the wine, Plato’s famous example (Theaetetus, 159c). That is, the wine that is sweet if you are healthy, but bitter if you are sick, and hence – according to Plato’s interpretation of Protagoras – would be both sweet and bitter at the same time. In this connection, this very example implicitly presupposes that we already somehow know how to discern the wine from other liquids (as well as from anything else, for that matter).

7 Taking my cue from ideas that were central for the early Jacques Derrida, I do not naively believe that replacing an old, entrenched concept or term with a new one – through a new definition, by adapting an old word to a new usage, or by paraphrasing and so forth – will resolve the issue and leave us in control of the new term and the new sense we are aspiring to. Every new term, every new definition and paraphrase, have to insert themselves in the already existing and everchanging grid of terms, concepts and practices that, to a much larger extent than is generally acknowledged, condition sense and possible usage.
