LEXIQUE MINEUR, HAPAX, MOTS ABSENTS –REMARQUES EN ÉCHO À UN TEXTE DE CRISTINA SANTINELLI

Abstract : In this text, written as an echo and an homage to Cristina Santinelli’s analyses of Spinoza, we show how the “attention to words”, which characterizes a great part of contemporary Spinoza research, can be understood equally well as the attention to “present” words (by using dictionaries, vocabularies, and the hyper-text now available), as an attention to “absent” words, or words that, at a first glance, appear to have a lesser value. The “minor lexicon”, or the terms absent from indexes and dictionaries, can help make sense of the difficulties encountered by a philosopher. Indeed, a philosopher’s “blind spots” can turn out to be the most important elements for understanding the philosopher, to the degree that the philosopher observes other philosophers, and the world that surrounds him, from these vantage points.
