Man Instituted by the Word

Light of truth

“In the end, I do not know what man is. My confession to myself is that man is instituted by the word, that is, by a language which is less spoken by man than spoken to man. Finally, what constitutes our answer to the apology of Necessity and resignation is the faith that man is founded, at the heart of his mythico-poetic power, by a creative word. Is not The Good News the instigation of the possibility of man by a creative word?
