Chapter Summary

The world is 'ensidisable' in various ways because each 'ensidisation' is a creation. Each stratum of Being is ensidisable in various ways because each stratum is a magma, because the determinations which obtain within each stratum are never truly 'ensidic', because the indeterminacy of these determinations is always such as to allow representation by an indefinite number of ensemblist organisations. If the self-ensemblisation of society obeys and actuates an ensidic logic which is more rigorously deterministic and identitary than that which governs the ensemblisation of other strata this immediately rules out any possibility of 'explaining' the logic of the institution of society by reference to the need to take into account the natural world and its organisation.

Keywords: ensidisation; quantum indeterminacy; self-ensemblisation
