The problem that matters is that an attempted return to the original moment is a search for a primordial “constituting power” that does not arise in Eden or the Promised Land, but somewhere in the wastes.
the truth of the search for intelligibility might be in that search for intelligibility, not in any “clear” “particular” “inteilligibles” yielded by some finally successful reading.
