Residual Synonyms for the Name of God
Author: Lewis Freedman
Publisher: Ugly Duckling Presse (2016)
In classical rabbinic literature the unpronounceable name of God produces and sacralizes a host of synonyms around what can't be said. Residual Synonyms for the Name of God performs the proliferation of language and culture in our late capitalist moment as a residual structure of a religious past. Lewis Freedman has heretically rewritten the work of his ancestors to create an annotated index of this inherited structure, in which our contemporary drive for total finitude profanes the infinite primarily by being indistinguishable from it.
