Show Summary Details


This chapter deals with the question of the a priori possibility of the Other as the stage upon which real characters or variable subjects are actualized as expressions of a field. It argues that none of the structures associated with an Other comprises unalterable truths, but merely inform us of the limits of imagination, understanding, and reason. The chapter suggests that the sensible absorption, emission, and intuition of states structured in relational networks allows for the possibility of some hesitation, some slow-down essential to the intuition of sensibility.

Keywords: a priori; Other; real characters; variable subjects; unalterable truths; imagination; understanding; reason; intuition
