Example text

Caputo says that Eckhart "understands quit e well that the term s 'Being' and 'Nothing ' are functions o f each other, that each is inscribed i n the other , marked an d traced by the other , and that neither get s the job done, alone or together" (p . 31). Well put, yet Eckhart, like Dogen, plays with synta x and semantic s not just to tease out ever new senses, not just to see how man y meanings he can make dance on the head of a pin, but to develop som e special types of expression, particularly those which can help u s t o se e through th e dualit y between ourselve s an d God .
