the same beings that made the author of 'ajayeb speak, got my/our ancestors excited,

'ajayeb, ancestry, being, excitement, Latour, modesofexistence,

it is the moderns quasi-subjects (person) who feel themselves to be **directly addressed,** (redressed and saved) ——> to exist
(what art suffers now, that i should directly address the modern subject, and other mode of subjectivity or other kinds of addressee and addressing is brutally criticized and irrelativized)
-(love’s type of address: ) addressed to us ==> make us exist ——> a person
(existing as person is the only way? no no no!) —— the emergence of persons is a local and historical phenomenon that we simply cannot extend to all collectives

to direct attention towards the beings about which humans are interrogating themselves

work in 'ajayeb is about the phenomenon of understanding that is to be found in modes of experience that lie outside the universal claims of modern scientific method (——the experiences of art, of philosophy, and of history itself.)
