Example text

Once we have tested, worn out, and disfigured various figures of “man,” of this supposed being whose true existence—I mean his biometaphysical existence as much as his technorelational one—has not ultimately been as well demonstrated as we believe, it falls to us to exceed all figures, configurations, and disfigurations. We don’t need more humanism or more democracy: we need to begin by questioning anew the entire thought of “man,” returning it to the workshop. When that is done, we must begin by saying that liberty and equality can only be valid within the element that at first seems to set mankind apart: the use of language.

1 We can say this in a different way, in order to move toward an essential characteristic of Christianity. The Greco-Roman world was the world of mortal mankind. Death was irreparable there; and whether one tried to think about it in terms of glory or in terms of deliverance, it was still the incompatible other of life. Other cultures have always affirmed death as another life, foreign yet close by, strange yet compatible in various ways. Irreparable and incompatible death struck life as an affliction.

On the contrary, this fact attests that existence bears, brings with it its entire extension and its full expansion. Here and now, between birth and death, without in any way denying and repressing this “finitude”—that is exactly what is infinite: between birth and death, each time, an absolute takes place. Liberty, Equality, Fraternity, Justice The appearance here of what we consider to be a political motto, in a form taken from historical variants, may be surprising. A motto, which is to say, a thought that one declares will regulate one’s conduct.
