À Dieu

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines philosopher and theologian Franz Rosenzweig's view on the interpretation of language. In his Star of Redemption, Rosenzweig suggested an intriguing interpretation of language that obliquely addresses its “spatial” or deictic modes. His first Amen posits being, not in the sense that it is opposed to the Heideggerian Nothing, but by the matrix or il y a. This is opposed to the indeterminate, or that what is not yet known or perhaps, because formless, unknowable but not radically non-Being.

Keywords: Franz Rosenzweig; interpretation of language; deictic modes; Heideggerian Nothing; Being
