Having taken off the burden of defending disengagement’s claim to neutrality in this fashion, Taylor then opens up a space to analyse with greater sensitivity the particular difficulties which have come along with disengagement. Whilst the desires for certainty and control founded and continue to maintain the buffered self, Taylor argues that there is also something deeply disquieting about life within the buffer. As he says, it is often experienced “as a limit, even a prison, making us blind or insensitive to whatever lies beyond this ordered human world and its instrumentalrational projects” (SA 302).

One need think here not only of the glorification of friendship in the Essais of Michel Montaigne (see SS chap. ” (SA 141). As one can see, for example, in many strands of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century fiction, relationships come to take on a profound power. Indeed, there is something peculiar about human intimacy that has made it resistant to total assimilation to a disengaged stance. One can think, in this regard, of Matthew Arnold’s famous lines from “Dover Beach” in which the same breath expresses both the withdrawal of the meaningful, involved cosmos, and the consolation of the intimate other (here, his new bride)17: The Sea of Faith Was once, too, at the full, and round earth’s shore Lay like the folds of a bright girdle furl’d; But now I only hear Its melancholy, long, withdrawing roar, Retreating to the breath Of the night-wind down the vast edges drear And naked shingles of the world.

Here again, as Taylor emphasises, Locke is fighting for a new activity, an activity focused on freedom of rational disengagement over against spontaneous enmeshment with the world, which he identifies with slavery. All of this, for both thinkers, is bound up with a rejection of teleology, in such a way that one’s nature can no longer be destined for attunement of a particular kind with the cosmos or with God. There is rather a profound preference for 18 fr iendship a s s ac r ed k now ing disengagement from the immediate spontaneous inclinations of the soul so that they can be evaluated and controlled by the subject.
