Drawing here on Hegel as emblematic of the entire tradition, Kierkegaard, in his book Fear and Trembling, argues that for philosophy my life becomes meaningful when I “raise myself to the universal” by bringing my immediate (natural) desires and inclinations under the moral law, which represents my “telos” or what I ought to be. Is it a sustained critique of a world that is becoming more dehumanized day by day? This mechanistic materialism has been carried down to our day in one form or another, and has been encouraged by such developments as those in organic chemistry establishing material substances and interactions as necessary components of life; in biology by Darwin and Huxley, which gave natural explanations for living things; and in physics in which mechanical cause-effect, push-pull, theories have had conspicuous success.

Reconstructionists observe the halakhah if they choose to, not because it is a binding Law from G-d, but because it is a valuable cultural remnant. It is an optimistic attitude to life whose ultimate goal is human flourishing (see the section on Eudaimonism ), doing good and living well in the here and now, and leaving the world better for those who come after. While it is undoubtedly true that, as Derrida and many feminists have acknowledged, the very attempt to criticize the liberal humanist heritage entails a profound complicity with it, we can surely speak of different modes and degrees of complicity.
