"So there is identity not only, as formal logic would have it, between identity and identity, but between difference and difference; there is a certain being in not-being. Now, is there the slightest difference between the identity of identity, and the identity of difference with difference? Certainly not. For there is no more identity between identity and identity than there is between difference and difference. And there is no more difference between difference and difference than there is between identity and identity. And yet identity and difference are clearly different types of relation. Yes, certainly. So the identity between, on the one hand, the identity of identity and identity, and on the other, the identity of difference, is the very factor of difference between identity and difference."Filosofiaa, kukaan...kukaan?
