Rejects Levinas’s argument for the preeminence of ethics in philosophy.

“Imagine listening at a keyhole to a talk with the duty of transcribing it, and the outcome could be a textual content just like the current one.” — from half I: Stagework

In a chain of meditations responding to writings through Emmanuel Levinas, David Appelbaum means that a fallacious grammar warrants Levinas to converse of language on the provider of ethics. it's the nature of functionality that he error. Appelbaum articulates this flaw through acting in writing the act of the philosophical brain at paintings. Incorporating the voices of different thinkers—in specific Levinas’s contemporaries Jacques Derrida and Maurice Blanchot—sometimes in actual fact, occasionally indistinctly, Appelbaum creates on those pages one of those soundstage upon which illustrations look of what he phrases “a rhetorical aesthetic,” which might reestablish rhetoric, principles for giving voice—and now not ethics—as the right kind matrix for realizing the otherness and beyond-being that Levinas seeks in his paintings

Example text

But art doesn’t explicitly advocate sobering up unto a vigilance alert to the trace of the other. Art may be mindful when language doesn’t hang together nicely or speak properly or determinately. Possibly, art doesn’t play sides in what transpires, namely, a weakened technology unable to fend off the other’s indiscretions as they grow abusively inaudible. ” (EE, 65). It threatens to travesty the themes of consciousness and its objects represented. To bring forth a play of imagery that morphs one thing to the next to the next, wreaking havoc in an orderly narrative, a midsummer night’s dream that fascinates as it dissolves the boundaries between things and their linguistic casements.

Hei‑ degger has the idea that language does not exhaust itself in meaning. Levinas picks up on it and reaffirms the anteriority of such a language, an arche‑language: “[T]he unsayable saying lends itself to the said, to the ancillary indiscretion of the abusive language that divulges or profanes the unsayable” (OB, 44). The language that language speaks (die Sprache spricht) before its use‑value is exploited by a speaker lets itself be reduced to the language spoken, yet with an unexpungeable trace of the originary.

For Levinas, significance lies chiefly in how the I hereby instantiates itself not as pure nominative presence but under an accusation syntacti‑ cally inscribed in the accusative. The performative involves a play, not of an intention but of a non‑intention, somehow enunciated and ready to operate on the Sinngebung, the making‑sense of the situation, and take its linguistical non‑place. Two dimensions of the performative are blurred not only because of the extralinguistical mode, but also because of an imperfect distinction between language usage and action, actus that becomes the difference between illocutionary and perlocutionary acts, constative and performative acts, as defined by Austin.
