The Circle of Creation
The conclusion revisits the idea of Castoriadis as problematic of being and creation. In arguing that Castoriadis's understanding of the circle of creation presumes a circle of interpretation, it draws attention to creation as contextual and opens onto inter-cultural questions of autonomy. It emphasizes that even though Castoriadis shifted from an elucidation of a regional ontology of nomos to a trans-regional ontology of creative physis, he did not dissolve the tension between the nomos and physis problematic, but took it in new directions. The phenomenological problematic of the world horizon was generally marginalized in his thought, but in extending his understanding of auto-ontological creation of form into nature, this book has argued that it reappeared at the level of the living being and expanded the phenomenal field as it has been conventionally understood in phenomenology.
