Intrigues: From Being to the opposite examines the potential of writing the opposite, explores even if a moral writing that preserves the opposite as such is feasible, and discusses what the consequences are for an ethically inflected feedback. Emmanuel Levinas and Maurice Blanchot, whose works represent the main thorough modern exploration of the query of the opposite and of its relation to writing, are the focus of this research. The book's horizon is ethics within the Levinasian experience: the query of the opposite, which, at the hither part of language understood as a procedure of indicators and of illustration, has to be welcomed via language and preserved in its alterity. Martin Heidegger is an unavoidable reference, even if. whereas it's actual that for the German thinker Being is an immanent creation, his elucidation of a extra crucial figuring out of Being involves a deconstruction of onto-theology, of the signal and the grammatical and logical determinations of language, all decisive beginning issues for either Levinas and Blanchot.At stake for either Levinas and Blanchot, then, is how you can mark a nondiscursive extra inside of discourse with no erasing or lowering it. How should still one learn and write the opposite within the related with no lowering the opposite to the same?Critics in recent times have mentioned a moral second or turncharacterized via the other's irruption into the order of discourse. the opposite turns into a real crossroads of disciplines, because it impacts numerous facets of discourse: the structure of the topic, the prestige of information, the character of illustration, and what that illustration represses (gender, power). but there was an inclination to graft the opposite onto paradigms whose major goal is to re-examine questions of identification, essentially when it comes to illustration; the opposite therefore loses a few of its most important features.Through shut readings of texts by way of Heidegger, Levinas, and Blanchot the e-book examines how the query of the opposite engages the very limits of philosophy, rationality, and gear

Sample text

This gloss signals a shift from Dasein understood as the ground of being to being as such. From 1935 onward one thesis underlies Heidegger’s thinking: that language is ‘‘onto-logical’’ or, in other words, the essence (Wesen) of language (nothing onto-logical) is the language of being, which may help to explain the double interrogation of the being of language and of the language of being. What matters here is being itself (Se-yn). This odd archaic spelling suggests that Heidegger thinks it from a nonmetaphysical determination, understood according to the history of its own self-disclosure and withdrawal, a history that comes into the Saying of language.

One The Passion of Time: Au moment voulu (Nietzsche-Heidegger-Blanchot) To see the Moment (Augenblick) means to stand in it. —Martin Heidegger, Nietzsche And now? Now, the evidence had been shattered; the broken pillars of time were holding up their own ruins. —Maurice Blanchot, When the Time Comes For Blanchot intrigue names an inextricable relation between at least two human beings and the not-assimilable strangeness that language harbors. 1 Blanchot, not unlike Levinas, employs the term intrigue to refer to the ‘‘relation of the third type’’ and to the ‘‘exigency of speech’’ when faced with the strangeness of language.

In Au moment voulu the reader faces the vertiginous movement of the eternal return, its disruption of the proper or same. In Blanchot’s repetition of Nietzsche’s eternal return, it is possible to read a thinking of the otherness of time as the necessary and impossible condition for thinking the other. ’’ These markers call attention to the impossibility of using any chronological or chronometrical criteria. The imminent and evident nature of ‘‘what had just happened’’ is not that of facts, and so this modality subtracts itself from any objective apprehension of time.
