Example text

This positing also logically implies its negation, or Vernichtung in Fichte’s terminology. The I counterposits the not-I. In other words, at the moment that the I is posited as a logical necessity, it is logically necessary to also posit its opposite. The not-I is, then, what is not the I, the rest of the world as a logical necessity. Thus, the principle of negation presents the “nothing” as that which is solely defined by the subject’s rational function and yet in contradistinction to the subject itself.

That relation is the ineliminable presentation of particularity. This is achieved within language, the artistic language that is based on a word-magic. ” Particularity is not simply part of infinitude, but is also implicated in it. The interplay of presence and presentation enacted by the “white nothing” can also be explicated from the point of view of the subject. This is no longer the autonomous subject of transcendentalism. Rather, it is the subject that the critique of loneliness augurs—it is the doppelgänger.

The whole critical project was undertaken in the name of the cognitive emancipation of the transcendental subject. ” If critical philosophy is to persist on the identity of sign and object, this identity cannot be found in the conjectures of the understanding. The identity ultimately rests on reason alone, in whose eternal space the particular is absent and the different can become the same. The limit spacing of understanding collapses into the eternal monotony of reason. 28 The subject can no longer dispute about anything, it can no longer encounter any resistance, not even from words.
