The God of Philosophy (Heidegger)

…[T]he cause as causa sui.  This is the right name for the god of philosophy.  Man can neither pray nor sacrifice to this god.  Before the causa sui, man can neither fall to his knees in awe nor can he play music and dance before this god.  —Identity and Difference p. 72
