This book addresses the limitedness of language, its failures and silence itself. In asking in what sense or whether at all it is possible to speak of what is beyond language, its focal point is the relation between imma-nence and transcendence. The unnameable, the inexpressible, the uncanny is both transcendent to and immanent in language: it is immanently transcendent. This seems to indicate the capacity of language to speak even about that about which one cannot speak and yet cannot remain silent. This interdisciplinarily conceived volume attempts to do jus-tice to the various aspects of its theme from both a historical and a systematic perspective.
