The french socialist struggle against determinism of Man

“The purpose of secular morality is to allow each student to be free, because the starting point of secularism is the absolute respect for freedom of conscience. To give freedom of choice, we must be able to remove the student from all determinisms, family, ethnic, social, intellectual…”

Peillon’s conceit

Freeing Man from determinism is a form of determinism. Any denial of metaphysics is a metaphysical theory. There is an intrinsically contradiction here: we cannot free Man from determinism without imposing another determinism: the difference is that the new determinism is not natural and depends upon the will of a political gnostic elite.
