Sample text

Crucial to understanding this dimension is the competition between film- and paper-based fiction in the twentieth century, and the ambitions of the former to position itself as an art independent of paper-based fiction. Yet what is, and has been, the fate of the script in such ambitions? If film is displayed as an autonomously visual medium—a display reinforced by the (critical) decision of many Nouvelle Vague directors to work on the basis of improvisation rather than a written scenario—what would be the position of the film script and its own aspirations toward a status as art?

Such disconnections thus are determined (in the German sense of bestimmt— that is, defined) as discrete, singular events. As a medium of reflection, thinking is thus distinguished from the Fichtean antithetics of Ego and Non-Ego, not in order to be dissolved into a higher continuum, but to subsist as the connectedness of discreet singularities—a connectivity that does not simply absorb the singularities into a more comprehensive synthesis. In this context, early on his dissertation Benjamin cites a name that will return toward its end to frame his discussion of the Romantic concept of criticism and at the same time to transcend it.

The decisive difference, however, between the Jena Romantics and Ho¨lderlin, as already suggested, is that the former still try to construe this ‘‘as such’’ of the self-separating medium as ultimately a process of Self-fulfillment, whereas Ho¨lderlin, as in his poetic commentary to Pindar alluded to by Benjamin, makes the ‘‘infinite exactness’’ of the ‘‘connection’’ dependent not on a Self but on a process of circumscribing in which the first person singular is not effaced but rather ‘‘lives itself out’’ (hinaus mich lebe).
