- We can order this
Written through both the first and second person singular, "Passionate Being" takes its author and its reader on a journey that has them thinking of their experience of and belonging to language and the possibility of an instance of the world taking-place without prejudice and exclusion. At its beginning, it brings to its author the question 'What can you say?' The responses that ensue turn our attention toward presupposition and about how 'singularity' can be said. The book also brings into play, among others, the work of Giorgio Agamben. It asks us to view both language and the world taking-place without presupposition, revealing both the political implications, and those for living, that this vision holds. It is a work to be read twice with pleasure, and then again.
