Show Summary Details


This chapter suggests that keeping open the potential of creative capacity discussed in Chapter 6 would require that we think the indiscretion of the human as inextricably bound with the resistance of world to picture; that we think the openness of such a world and humanity, in their nature, according to the birth implied by mortality; and that we think the ongoing possibility of birth, and thus the ongoing birth of possibility, as the function of a love that remains of the world. The human as indiscrete image, in pointing forward, would be bound, by love, with a world that remains open, thanks to such love, for those who dwell in it.
