Thinking/Modernity/Foucault: no possible morality, thinking is already a "step out", no more theory. Thinking is a dangerous act, even before it sounds the alarm. (De Sade, Nietzsche, Artaud, Bataille).
Thinking/Modernity/Foucault: in modern thinking an origin can no longer be determined, work, life and language have assumed their own historicity. Man discovers himself only as connected with an already created historicity. He is never a contemporary of the origin that conceals himself.
Thinking/Modernity: It closes the great square, by rediscovering the finiteness in the question of the origin: the connection of the positivities with the finiteness, the doubling of the empirical in the transcendental, the constant relation of the cogito to the unthought, the retreat and the return of the origin.
Thinking/Modernity: It no longer runs alongside the never-ending formation of the difference, but rather to the unveiling of the same which is always to be accomplished. Thought image: in modern thought, the reasons of the history of things and of man's own historicality is the distance that is kept which undermines the same, the deviation that streams it, and collects at the ends of itself. Deep spatiality. This space always allows thinking to think of time and to recognize it as a sequence._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
