DOOYEWEERD: The Human Ego

“Der Egoißt” (design by Gunter Rambow, 1968)

“The human ego expresses itself in the entire temporal human existence, but it recedes as an intangible phantom as soon as we try to localize it in our temporal experience.”

(A New Critique of Theoretical Thought, V 2, p 115)
