referred to as ‘phenomenalisation’, as a sign that offers – finally – true knowledge of the world as it is, and – in turn – explains the emergence of all other forms of inscription. (In this respect the geological scale of the Anthropocene would frame the emergence of life, cognition, humanity and its self-reflective triumph). Alternatively, and preferably, one might read the Anthropocene: there would be no direct passage from inscription to knowledge, nor to a humanity that would be the revealed ground or ‘we’ to whom the signs of the earth would be addressed.

. Indeed the imagination can be understood as what makes being intelligible, instead of remaining opaquely enclosed within itself.5 The structure of seeing something as something which is made possible by what Kant explains in terms of schematism need not result in determinate cognition, as the ability to create metaphors – new ways of ‘seeing as’ – suggests. In this respect what the imagination produces seems to span both art and science. Taken a step further, nature’s own productivity might seem not be essentially different from our own production of forms of coherence

if it is no longer possible to regard art as the essential key to interpreting largescale aspects of history and society which are obscured by dominant forms of cognition and technical control. One of the most important Romantic ideas resulting from the idea that the absolute is not accessible to reflection was that there should be an interplay of cognitive, ethical and aesthetic modes of articulation. The implications of this idea are well conveyed in Cavell’s claim that knowing things is not the only way of relating to them. The inaccessibility of the absolute is

condense quality networks), integrative knowledge incorporates an adaptivity or flexibility to factor variations. According to the evolutionary approach (Nelson and Winter 2002: 29), ‘the basic behavioural continuity issue can be addressed in terms of skills, routines, learning and cognition’. The notion of routine provides the basic integrative knowledge that assures the feasibility (or the coherence) and the efficiency of the tasks that individuals and organisations have to perform, in a given framework but in variable contexts. The problem of behavioural continuity is

and allegory compelling, even though I disagree with him about the cognition involved in making sense of allegory. The human mind’s ability to make sense of allegory— to correctly identify, say, the real-world satirical target of a short poem that does not mention the person by name—depends, according to Mark Turner, on three “principles of mind,” story, projection, and parable, that allow us to make sense not only of literature but also of reality, with “story” organizing our thinking, “projection” describing how “one story helps us make sense of another,” and

This is a resolutely disembodied riddle. On the one hand, the insistent negation tells us what we are not dealing with: having no eyes
