Sample text

I have based this interrogation of ontology and ethics in terms of a rethinking of the relation between representation and matter. Irigaray’s analysis demonstrates that the Western metaphysical model depends on a representative economy where the subject—the white man—defines Introduction xxxiii itself over and against an other who is robbed of subjecthood. This is clearly seen in Fanon’s account of the colonial relation. Fanon’s black subject is beset by representations; he is forced to conform to meanings already existing for him.

A nongrounded metaphysics enables authentic Being-in-the-world and an ethical relation with the Other. An expression of signification beyond representation is, therefore, integral to the demands of the ethical relation, as articulated by both Irigaray and Heidegger. However, understanding metaphysics’ dependence on representation is the first step in understanding how a recasting of the relationship between representation and matter can enable authentic Being-in-theworld and ethical difference.

The Signifying Body attempts to articulate an alternative to a representational economy through a rearticulation of the relation between matter and representation. Specifically, I propose the possibility that material signification exists beyond representation, beyond the always already grounding that that material becomes subject to in the act of representation. If signification can be understood outside of a representational frame, a nongrounded metaphysics is possible. A nongrounded metaphysics enables authentic Being-in-the-world and an ethical relation with the Other.
