Abstract

This response to Polydoxy explores some of the resonances of “heretical choice,” or polyhairesis. I engage explicitly with two of the essays from the 2011 volume, Colleen Hartung's “Faith and Polydoxy in the Whirlwind” and Hyo-dong Lee's on the Neo-Confucian Great Ultimate. I read Hartung's suggestion of a theology that would not be predicated on God into Chinese thought, where instead of Lee's Neo-Confucianism, I offer a more Daoist interpretation of Hartung's faith. Hartung's mantra, “no news is good news,” taken from her mother, resonates with the idea that the dao that can be named is not the true dao.
