By David Appelbaum
“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 sequence of meditations responding to writings by means of Emmanuel Levinas, David Appelbaum means that a incorrect grammar warrants Levinas to talk of language on the carrier of ethics. it's the nature of functionality that he error. Appelbaum articulates this flaw via acting in writing the act of the philosophical brain at paintings. Incorporating the voices of alternative thinkers—in specific Levinas’s contemporaries Jacques Derrida and Maurice Blanchot—sometimes sincerely, occasionally indistinctly, Appelbaum creates on those pages one of those soundstage upon which illustrations seem of what he phrases “a rhetorical aesthetic,” which might reestablish rhetoric, principles for giving voice—and no longer ethics—as the right kind matrix for figuring out the otherness and beyond-being that Levinas seeks in his work.
David Appelbaum is Professor of Philosophy on the country collage of recent York at New Paltz. His many books contain Jacques Derrida’s Ghost: A Conjuration; The hold up of the guts; Disruption; The cease; daily Spirits; and Voice, all released by means of SUNY Press.
