Abstract [en]

"Separation or perception? On deconstruction,chronophobia and mysticism". The article questions a certain deconstructive way of critizising mysticism and its concept of timelessness. It points towards the necessity of aligning the deconstructionist theme of a "deconstructed self" with the idea of "selflessness" in mysticism. It further argues that certain arguments against the notion of "wholeness", both can rather be used to support this notion and build on a notion of wholeness, which is rather typical of the kind of "naive positivism" which normally is a target of criticism in deconstructive endeavors.
