Sample text

A disembodied language exhibits an arrogance which contaminates our relations to other animate or inanimate creatures. If language is identified primarily with intellection, then obviously infants and animals, plants and water do not have one. ‘Mindless’ creatures can thus be regarded as mere objects of knowledge or as targets of indoctrination by a superior representationalist language. This outlook that holds us captive may be employed to justify all manner of appropriation and control. ’39 All of these difficulties may effectively be eschewed by simply ignoring pain, growth, illness; by denying life altogether and producing a philosophy which has nothing to do with it.

Possibly even the most formal and regulated strivings of humans are aimed to try to endure beyond the limited moment and ultimately to fulfil a dream of immortality. Life’s vicissitudes can perhaps be operative in shaping even the highest intellectual achievements of a culture. And the project of achieving a transcendental rationality is possibly first suggested by the inherent finitude of our life cycle. The ‘idealist’ project may in fact represent a way out of the challenges of our embodied condition.

22 Here again a problematic combination of heterogeneous features is invoked since the actual interdigitation of verbalized opinions and forms of life, of logos and bios, is probably one of our main, unresolved concerns. And even attempts to define metaphors in terms of literal language (itself constituted by faded metaphors) appear to some extent circular as, indeed, the literal defining language emerges from a metaphoric ground: thinkers can often argue for the literalness of the language we use by ultimately invoking terms of just the type whose literalness is in question.
