Quote of the Week

Quote of the Week

Scholar: Patchen Markell

“The accusative of violence, like that of love, destroys the in-between, crushes or burns it, renders the other defenseless, strips itself of protection. In contrast to this stands the dative of saying and speaking, which confirms the in-between, moves within it.  Then again there is the accusative of the singing poem, which removes and releases what it sings from the in-between and its relations, without confirming anything. When poetry and not philosophy absolutizes, there’s rescue.”

-- Hannah Arendt, Denktagebuch, vol. 1, p. 428 [August 1953], (my translation.)
