Paul Celan and the Language of Birth

Author(s): Imre Bartók

Summary/Abstract: That philosophy is nothing else but a lifelong exercise in the acceptance and preparation for death is a well known common place. On the other hand, also the question must be raised about the significance of birth within the philosophical discourse. While death - in Heideggerian terms - offers the transcendental ''wholeness' of the subjet, the thought of birt offers what could be called the ''hermeneutical openness''. This openness can function as a certain way of understanding both the past and the future. The study offers a philosophical analysis of the three poems by Paul Celan dealing with the problem of birth.
