Abstract : Pip-The Intolerable Third
The chapter takes one straight into the space of liminal experience: experience beyond discourse, the memory of which is central to the reading of the present observations. This is so, because this chapter focuses upon a common process, in the course of which the "commonplace" otherness of Others undergoes a transformation into a quality resisting definitions. Precisely for that reason, this unsettling quality necessarily needs to be reclaimed by discourse - or else rhetorically obliterated altogether.
Throughout the present text, the Ersatz term of Thirdness is used to denote it. The disquieting, albeit unspeakable Third unceasingly "tasks" humankind and "heaps" it, and therefore has become
one of the primary sources of philosophical reflection. Its non-discursiveness, however, imposes upon this article the uneasy task of modeling a situation, in which the readers' emotions together with their rational minds will jointhy work towards personal conclusions. This is why the present text, academic by assumption, must have a protagonist with whom one can identify: a protagonist well known, a character rather than a type, but certainly one born out of discourse. Hence Melvillean Pip.
