Philosophy and Systems

I myself am not narrow minded enough for a system—not even for my own

Friedrich Nietzsche

But perhaps it is not the non-systematic that philosophy should think since the non-systematic remains another system and another ordering of the systematic, but rather the fissures of nothingness and dissolution to which the whole metaphysical tradition is brought, toward which the impossibility of knowing and non-decidedness are drawn. Perhaps thought names a detour in its escaping by turning towards the night that takes away clarity and decidedness. In the night the line separating the systematic from the non-systematic fades away by becoming the trace of what has never been.
