In the postcolony, the zone between legality and illegality, order and disorder, the legitimate and the counterfeited, is therefore more a twilight zone than a bright line; a shadowy, aporetical
and interstitial region of uncertainty, ambiguity, and murkiness that creates "a contemporary sense of inscrutability" (16; emphasis in original).
Epistemology was just the aporetical
attempt to bridge the gap between formal logic and ontology.
Could the texts she reads as aporetical
and ambiguous actually contain theoretical resources for challenging Lefort's definition of the political?
Moreover, Reimarus not only demonstrated aporetical
problems with these and other dogmas, but also outright ridiculed them and argued that they lead to atheism (164-65)--how is this Lutheran orthodoxy?
In this specific case, in order to defend my conception, I availed myself of the difficulties which arise from radical relativism, and showed that scepticism reveals the aporetical
nature of the common notions of objectivity and truth.
It is, in fact, on the side of the object, that which the transcendental is on the side of the subject: each is only visible as the parallactic moment of the shift between frames, as an undecideable and hence aporetical
excess or difference (Kant 1958, 152-55, "The Ground of the Distinction of All Objects in General into Phenomena and Noumena," and 240, "Transcendental Idealism as the Key to the Solution of the Cosmological Dialectic"; Zizek 1989, 172, 177, 204-05).
concepts of philosophy are marks of what is objectively, not just cogitatively, unresolved" (153).
