god and grammar


Recommended Posts

Well, I'm no Nietzsche scholar, but my first thoughts on this went right to The Birth of Tragedy, where he says something about a "hot liquid stream of metaphor" at the base of all things.  I'll see if I can find the quote later, but I think Nietzsche would see God as a constriction of the Dionysian power of language and its relationship to being.  More of a (Derridean) grammatology than a grammar, perhaps: the first is a general economy of creation, whereas the latter is a structured, more restricted economy of signification.

When a book and a head collide and a hollow sound is heard, must it always have come from the book? -- Lichtenberg
