Asking, for Telling, by Doing, as If Betraying

Asking, for Telling, by Doing, as If Betraying

by Stephen David Ross

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 23/01/2012

An exposition of the implications of betraying as the nonidentity of every identity with itself. A philosophic poetic meditation on the extreme inseparability of truth and untruth, evoking the expressingness of things together with their unaccountabilities, uncertainties, multiplicities, alterities, and heterogeneities. A reflection on what Derrida calls the impossible. The book begins with asking as questioning and as pleading, giving rise to telling as revealing and as sharing, then to doing as achieving and as performing, followed by calling, coming, giving, wondering, abounding, enchanting, and finally betraying, concluding with what might be meant by betraying betraying as an ethico aesthetic epistemological way of living historically, temporally, expressingly, and impossibly.
