And that philosophical tradition of resistance begins where? I'm tempted to say Descartes. Isn't that where the wedge gets driven in between subject & object, between mind & body? Descartes' project is brilliant & even intellectually courageous; it has been immensely powerful in making dualism the dominant philosophical doctrine of the modern era; that Descartes' project ends in error yet remains so forceful is a kind of philosophical Tragedy.
