zur Kritik

zur Kritik: German for “on the critique of…” as well as “on critique in general” or “toward a critique”.  Inscribing and re-inscribing narratives; ideally, before they become reified and sacrosanct.  Opening spaces for questions, doubts, attacks.  Circling the void at the core of the archaeo-teleology that is called “History”: the event is happening, and always, it will have happened, and it will not have been an event.  The latter is narrative; the former is critique: reinscription.

And yet, as always, the critique of historical narrative is done in the name of historical narrative; as always, rationality can only call itself in question; the petitio principii remains the same.
