Anonymity is the structure or non-structure of the nameless no one. So if this is phenomenology, it is at best a quasi-phenomenology, an exhausted and burnt-out phenomenology, working at the lower limits of phenomenality, where things have not yet quite been constituted or objectified, and not yet managed to rise up into manifestness, or to shine or glow with Sein, or even in a certain sense to be at all. Not beyond but below being. Still, minimalists like me will often (especially when we are under attack), seek the protection that the word “phenomenology” or even “quasi-phenomenology” affords, because phenomenology is an honorable word with honorable associations.
12 I beg to be excused for lapsing into Franco-English in what follows. But if I am right, this is not just a little idiomatic structure deeply embedded in a highly idiomatic language like French, but a general condition that besets us all to which we must own up. ” For Derrida, il y a resonates with cinders or ashes, which are an excellent and even biblical sign of the humility (humus) of our condition and for the anonymity from which things arise and into which they return. Il y a is, I hope to show, not just a shibboleth confined to French, but a token of a more widespread condition that is as old as Genesis.
If the Hebrew tohu wa bohu, the chaos and confusion, the originary chaos into which God spoke his word in Genesis 1:1–2, shows up phenomenologically in il y a and its hubbub, its remue ménage,18 here the Hebrew hineni comes out as me voici, all of which brings out something Jewish about the il y a or the anonymous. Hineni/me voici provides the terms for the minimalist reading of the binding of Isaac that I here propose. The French language has the advantage here of bringing out what we might venture to call the grammar of obligation.
