Overview

This lecture explores the task of speaking about the end from the perspective of the end of speaking using the nexus between eschatology, the discourse about the end, and apophaticism, the discourse about the limits of discourse. It uses the respective paths of Rosenzweig, Benjamin, and Heidegger, three seminal twentieth-century thinkers.
