Language and Relation: #NAME?

Front Cover

0 Reviews
Pursing the ontological and ethical dimensions of language, the book engages such topics as: language and materiality, language and history, language and existence. It asks what is given to thought in an experience with language (an experience of the fact that there is language), and what it means to think and write from this event. It attends to the strangeness of both literature and philosophy when they engage language itself, and moves cautiously toward a non-foundational understanding of the material and historical ground of relation.
