‘Meditation of the Principle is the very principle of philosophy.’ This opening sentence of the present volume does not simply set out the book’s plan, it also conveys its ambition. The author, the original and brilliant metaphysician Stanislas Breton, who died on April 2nd 2005, began his research in Roman universities, continued in the Catholic Institutes of Lyon and Paris and then took it to a summit in the École normale supérieure in the Rue d’Ulm. He then went on to produce a truly stunning thesis. Exactly thirty years after its initial publication, it is being made available again, more topical than ever. Its four parts are devoted to the antique concept of ‘Principle’ and the ‘Ineffable’, to which it is necessarily confronted; its employment in philosophy and theology; and the criticism to which it is subjected by contemporary thinking. In the process, the author deciphers what, in different ways, determines the ‘organisation of the thinkable’ within philosophies and theologies. This republished volume will serve to inspire new generations who wish to honour and take advantage of this exceptional work, in the same vein as the ‘Breton Archives’.
