The infinite in the finite. Finitude as an opening to the infinite: nothing but this is at stake. What we call “finitude”—mortality, natality, fortuitousness—would not exist if in the very act of naming it we did not allow it to transpire that we exist and that the world exists as an opening onto infinity, via infinity. This is to say that the very fact of existence prevents existence from being “finite” in the sense of having no extension beyond itself. On the contrary, this fact attests that existence bears, brings with it its entire extension and its full expansion.

Addiction—Adoration “Addiction” is a Latin term to which the English language has given the sense familiar to us. Roman addictio is the confirmation of an affirmation, a declaration, a commitment. The word developed its sense in the direction of “to dedicate oneself,” “to devote oneself,” “to give oneself over to,” and later in the direction of obligation, indebtedness, and submission. It is impossible not to allow some vague relation to emerge between ab-dicere (and/or ab-dicare, since the two verbs are close to one another here) and ad-orare, even though dire is related to the declaration and to its content, while orer (as Old French had it) suggests speech as address.
