Notes

Abstract: This thesis ostensibly begins with the fundamental question of aesthetics: what is art? From this point of departure, however, it comes to discover not only the nature of art, but the possibility of a moment of truth in which we can be turned into the infinity of our absolute relation. Beginning with the declaration that art is revelation and that revelation is the advent of truth, the thesis outlines both an aesthetics which understands the true nature of art as an ineffable moment, and the nature of this ineffable moment as a truth which precedes, transcends and informs those notions of truth with which we are most familiar � an ineffable happening of an infinite and absolute relation into which we turn. Thus, the purpose of the thesis is twofold: to characterize Art as the Moment and to characterize the Moment as Truth. Toward the latter end, I have employed the writings of Emmanuel Levinas, Soren Kierkegaard and Martin Buber, in attempting to indicate the possibility of the moment of infinite relation as truth; toward the former, Martin Heidegger, in attempting to explicate art as a happening of this truth. This is a call, as is all art, beckoning from itself, from the self, into the infinity of the moment.
