Rigorously studying the inexpressible expression provoked by the silenced testimony of the Holocaust survivor, in Jean-Francois Lyotard’s The Differend, and the religious faithful, in Pseudo-Dionysius’ The Divine Names, proves to dissolve the apparent heterogeneity of postmodernism and Neoplatonist Christian mysticism and open radical new lines of dialogue. Expressing the Inexpressible critically evaluates each thinker and tradition, rethinks witnessing, testimony, sublimity, and apophaticism, and then engages them together to forge a new reading of silence and eros.
