In Place of a Conclusion: Thoughts on a Prior Possible

Show Summary Details

Preview

Throughout the preceding text, a series of themes or motifs emerges as recurrent. The conclusion attempts to draw these together. The themes importantly include the name as call or evocation and possibility as a theological value. Here these two are woven together to argue for the call of the possible in every moment as the sense of divine enticement, and as what is named by the divine name. It does so through texts from Augustine, Meister Eckhart, and French Nietzschean essayist and novelist Pierre Klossowski.

Keywords: Augustine; Pierre Klossowski; Possibility; the impossible; eternal return; Catherine Keller
