“ The idea of philosophy as questioning and openness always paves the way, as we know, for the return of the religious. I use “religion” here to describe the axiom according to which a truth is always a prisoner of the arcana of meaning and a matter for interpretation and exegesis. There is an Althusserian brutality to the concept of philosophy that recalls, in that respect, Nietzsche. Philosophy is affirmative and combative, and it is not a captive of the somewhat vicious delights of deferred interpretation. In terms of philosophy, Althusser maintains the presupposition of atheism, just as others, such as Lacan maintain it in anti-philosophy. That presupposition can be expressed in just one sentence: truths have no meaning.
