There needs to be a "thought" that is familiar with greater than it knows, greater than its skill, of which it can't be modern, a "thought" which, during this experience, may transcend its demise. to appreciate a couple of knows, to imagine a couple of thinks, to think about what withdraws from suggestion, is to wish, with a wish that, not like desire, is renewed and turns into ardent the extra it truly is nourished with the fascinating. to move past one's demise is to sacrifice oneself. The reaction to the enigma's summons is the generosity of sacrifice open air the identified and the unknown, with out calculation, for occurring to infinity. If what's fascinating to wish is countless, it may no longer take delivery of as an finish. 18 The infinite's impossibility to be an finish for the will it arouses preserves it from contemporaneousness, accurately because of its infinitude. the best way wish is going to infinity is hence now not the correlation attribute of cognition. whether it, with a unique intentionality, may still turn into an axiology or a praxis, the stream could nonetheless pass from a topic to an item, and imitate correlation. hope, or the reaction to an enigma, or morality, is a plot with 3 personages: the I methods the limitless by way of going generously towards the you, who's nonetheless my modern, yet, within the hint of illeity, provides himself out of a intensity of the earlier, faces, and ways me. I method the endless insofar as I overlook myself for my neighbor who appears at me; I omit myself in basic terms in breaking the undephasable simultaneity of illustration, in latest past my demise. I process the limitless by way of sacrificing myself. Sacrifice is the norm and the criterion of the method. And the reality of transcendence is composed within the concording of speech with acts. 18 The French fin skill 1) finish, 2) target, and three) is linked to fini - finite. seventy three past Being The unwonted plot which solicits the I and springs to a head past cognition and disclosure in enigma is ethics. the connection with the endless isn't really a cognition yet an procedure, a neighboring with what siginifies itself with out revealing itself, what departs yet to not dissimulate itself. As limitless, it can't lend itself to the current within which this play of readability and abscondity is enacted. the connection with the countless then now not has the constitution of an intentional correlation. The best anachronism of a previous that was once by no means a now, and the technique of the endless via sacrifice - is the enigma's notice. A face can look as a face, as a proximity interrupting the sequence, provided that it enigmatically comes from the endless and its immemorial earlier. And the countless, to solicit hope, a proposal considering greater than it thinks, can't be incarnated in a fascinating, can't, qua endless, be close up in an finish. It solicits throughout a face, the time period of my generosity and my sacrifice. A you is inserted among the I and absolutely the He. Correlation is damaged. it truly is then useless to posit an absolute you. absolutely the withdraws from the illuminated website, the "clearing"19 of the current, within which being is unveiled and during which speech approximately speech nonetheless claims, and maybe legitimately, to be a speech approximately being.
