Wenn es nur noch persönliche Wahrheiten gibt

American pragmatic culture is the “refusal to believe in the existence of Truth”, that is Truth with a captial “T” in the sense of “something which has authority over human beings.” … Only personal truths with a little “t” are possible, and they are best understood merely as “tools for achieving human happiness”, rather than as “representations of the intinsic nature of reality.” America is “the first nation-state with nobody but itself to please – not even God.”
