Between Chora and the Good

This chapter examines the views of Maurice Blanchot on the concept of being and existence. Blanchot believes that a tale or narrative both negates the actual existence of things named, and thus of the truth value of those assertions implicit in predication, and depersonalizes and neuters the narrator. This chapter suggests that Blanchot's minimalist assumptions may point to the Good, and that his variant on the hypodochic manifold permits a Levinasian deduction of literature's hypodochic horizons that can neither be said nor brought within phenomenology.

Keywords:   Maurice Blanchot, being, existence, the Good, Levinasian deduction, phenomenology
