The Importance of Limits

All concepts find their meaning through what separates them from other concepts.

Limits of a thing define what that something is or can stand for.

For example, whether we look at "technology" or "liberty" as concepts, we need to explore their limits so that we may better comprehend their specific nature.

Otherwise, important concepts—with no limits as to what they are or can stand for—can become part of an ideological language that can use them to stand for almost anything, dispossessing them of any usefulness they may have served as concepts.
