Abstract [en]

Using abstract art as a paradigm, this paper attempts to think, in a provisional manner, the parameters of what the author calls 'abstract hermeneutics'-a way of thinking capable of responding to the withdrawing, or abstracting, movement of Being. Such abstract thinking which is an abstracting thinking of the abstract aims to step beyond objectivity precisely in order to return to phenomenological concreteness. Through an engagement with Heidegger's understanding of the formal indicative role of the human being as sign (Zeichen), the affinity, between the abstracting gestures of abstract art, and the absenting characteristic of human existence, is explored.
