"But if philosophy is thought in search of ultimate comprehension, what does it do? What is the practice that ultimate thinking engages in? If philosophy looks eventually toward the timeless and eternal, it nevertheless exists in time and has an historical role to play. What is that role?
Can it be perhaps, the practical work of philosophy is directed toward the future?... Is the function of philosophy, in a word, inauguration?"
