Reason is not a language game

The purpose of this post is to come back to the idea that belief is not a discursive reality, following a conversation with Dr. Jones. This conversation brought forward an absurdity: The abstract framing of this issue as outside of meaning negates the utter investment involved when something is held to be necessarily true. This doesn't have any bearing on the belief problematic per se, just in the way I explain the problem.

So, then, the direction is to go deeper into Spinoza, and the status of universality in reason. This happens to be a suggested paper title. Meep meep!

To clarify: Yes, reason is part and parcel of discursive reality / language games.
