The problem of the beginning of philosophy is well know. One must choose a fundamental approach and then forget the choice, refuse to acknowledge its contingency. One then builds a massive edifice on the presupposition, a castle on a cloud - which makes the cloud invisible. It is more honest to note that there are four possible approaches (the four cardinals) and that each corresponds to a mode of will that is to some degree not accountable - or at least not consciously chosen. But to stop here is not enough. One then has to order the approaches - as an ascending path of liberation - and construct a provisional system that derives from all four.
