6. three Secondly: how can one seize from the ontological viewpoint the delivery of the identify kairòs? within the following means. we've got stated that kairòs vacillates among naming and the article named. but if we notice kairòs during this circulation, we see that its presence is uncovered to that void in the direction of which period makes being precipitate. Why does kairòs no longer precipitate into it? since it expresses a brand new being. it truly is right here then, while kairòs exposes itself to the void and makes a decision upon it, that the identify is born. via kairòs, the ontological confirmation of the identify can't be understood except as a call of a brand new being. during this experience, in kairòs, presence is expression. And the identify is a made from expression. 6. four to this point we have now spoken of the genuine as adequation of brand name and factor. How will we now supply the ‘expression’ inside kairòs a decisive functionality? it truly is attainable as the ontological conception of kairòs poses adequation as an occasion of iteration. the object, at the fringe of being, calls at the act of naming to enhance being, within the comparable approach because the identify calls the item to a brand new singular life. Kairòs is now the arrow that has been published. 6. five during this feel, our adventure of the real has little to do with the static or ecstatic ‘intuition’ of the spatialized item. The latter is unavoidably impotent, simply because there's no such item. instinct seeks out essences, it's a online game of blindman’s buff long past mad, taking a look agitatedly low and high, continually in the direction of the hidden—it is the wandering hand of information. He who desires purely to determine, as Max Weber used to assert, should still visit the cinema. 6. 6 to the contrary, the following we see how Spinoza’s ‘common suggestion’ or Leibniz’s ‘contingent fact’ are endowed with a brand new mild, simply because right here their corporeality should be learn in temporal phrases whilst the identify is expressed via kairòs. those names are complete with existence. 7. 1 during this method of the speculation of fact, opposite to what we discover within the classical or sleek period, house is subordinated to temporality. to claim area is subordinated to time isn't really to disclaim the spatial consistency of the identify (and of the typical name), yet particularly to outline it in its specificity, and in subordination to the modality of time. hence the identify should have a spatial consistency that can not be given except in the constitutive personality of time. In different phrases: if the reality of the identify is composed within the building of being past the sting of the current, and if its adequation to the item is composed in iteration, that doesn't deny a definite spatial shape to the identify; it is going to outline the reality of the identify within the new ontological structure of time, and never in a static position. yet what does this suggest precisely? How and the place can one clutch the distance of the being of temporality, i. e. the site of the reality of the identify? 7. 2 those observations are crucial for the structure of the typical identify, that's the primary software (and operator) of information. 7. three As we've seen, the reality of a reputation can't be given through something except its insistence in kairòs.
