Schöningh (2005)

There is no complete determination. There is no definite foundation. And yet there is something and not nothing. What is cannot be deduced by necessity nor universally determined. Hence fortuity must be at the origin of everything. But fortuity isn’t contingency, nor does it imply relativism, arbitrariness or nihilism. Fortuity is decisive. The theory of fortuity formulates decisive though not absolute truths about Being, the knowing and acting self, and ethics. It articulates their irreducible origin, respectively as the fortuitous event of Being, that of consciousness, and as friendship growing from the that of Love. It maintains that there is a comprehensive and systematic, non-fragmentary and non-formal theory beyond dogmatism, foundationalism and universalism. There is truth. There is Philosophy with a capital p.
