(p.104) Is the Possible Doing Justice to God?
After God

Dominique Janicaud

Fordham University Press

This chapter addresses the question: is the possible doing justice to God? The first reply is negative: the possible as a philosophical category cannot do justice to God. The discussion reflects upon the possible as a philosophical category and the eschatological may-be. The answer later changes to maybe provided that one avoids using the possible as a metaphysical category. The chapter suggests the clarification of the difference between a phenomenology and a hermeneutics of the may-be, which would not yet be; an account of various possible versions of a hermeneutical phenomenology of faith and religion; and the retrieval of the highest tradition of ontotheology or the unceasing deconstruction of metaphysics in the manner of Derrida.

Keywords:   possible, philosophy, metaphysics, eschatology, ontotheology, phenomenology, hermeneutics, Derrida, God
