In what way, would you say, is the "finding" and "capturing" of the truth of
a transgressive language/philosophy different to dialectical (eg.
scientific) thinking. Has it to do with the notion that in transgression
one experiences an aesthetic relation to truth, a truth not found or
captured so much as created and made.
