Example text

Within the Hebrew imagination is a liberation from the dualism of the Greek imagination. Within the Hebrew language there is an indication of a deeper difference at play which then affects thinking. The Hebrew imagination is integrally embodied in the doubling of language, expressed by hoshev mahashavot. That doubling of the same upon itself leads to the very self-transcendence Adorno needs in thinking. Hebrew thinking is intrinsically imaginal as expressed in its root verb, hsv. What the Hebrew imagination then facilitates is an integral relationship between the inceptual roots of the imagination that spread forth into its conceptual branches.

It is what is possible, never the immediately realized, which obstructs utopia; that is why in the middle of the existent it appears abstract. The inextinguishable color comes from the not-existent. Thinking serves it as a piece of existence, as that which, as always negatively, reaches out to the not-existent. Solely the most extreme distance would be the nearness; philosophy is the prism, in which its colors are caught. —Theodor Adorno2 On the Possibility of Jewish Thinking within Machshevet Yisrael In the search for truth, proximity is paradoxically distance.

Or is there a certain poiesis dwelling within the refusal of such thinking in truth as it resists poetry per se? Heeding the Hidden Star: Turning to Poetry As the thinker in truth inevitably makes the turn [kehre] toward poetry, one realizes what poets are for. Only poets are capable of envisioning the truths which thought cannot contain. The multiplicity, which concepts cannot contain, is liberated by the realm of words. The constellation of the poem welcomes words to find their dwelling place.
