By Robert Anton Wilson

This publication speaks of a brand new Inquisition, a brand new Idol and a brand new Agnosticism. by way of the recent Inquisition I suggest to designate definite behavior of repression and intimidation which are changing into more and more standard within the clinical group this present day. by means of New Idol I suggest to designate the inflexible ideals that shape the ideological superstructure of the hot Inquisition. by way of the hot Agnosticism I suggest to designate an angle of brain which has in other places been known as "model agnosticism" and which applies the agnostic precept not only to the "God" suggestion yet to rules of all types in all parts of suggestions and beliefs. The agnostic precept refuses overall trust or overall denial and regards versions as instruments for use in basic terms and constantly the place applicable and changed (by different types) in basic terms and consistently the place now not applicable. It doesn't regard any versions, or any classification of versions, as extra "profound" than the other types, or any type of types yet asks simply how a version serves, or fails to serve, those that use it. The agnostic precept is meant the following in a vast "humanistic" or "existential" feel, and isn't meant to be narrowly technical or philosophical in basic terms. This publication is intentionally polemical simply because i feel versions, as instruments, could be established in that sort of wrestle which Nietzsche metaphorically known as "war" and Marx referred to as dialectical fight. it truly is intentionally stunning simply because i don't wish its principles to appear any much less stark or startling than they're.
