Dogma-x

“Even sceptics, pragmatists, and empiricists – those anti-dogmatic heroes – have their own kinds of dogma-x; for the sceptic, the notion that knowledge is fallible; for the pragmatist, the commitment to practical application; for the empiricist, the religion of sense experience. And even the most intrepid anti-essentialist positions, such as poststructuralism or deconstruction, have their own versions of dogma-x: ‘there is nothing outside of the text’ or ‘all rationality contains a play of supplementarity.’ Dogma-x is a claim, a claim formulated as a picture of the world.”
