Author’s Abstract

  1. In this essay I focus on the idea of the univocity of being, championed by Duns Scotus and given prominence more recently by Deleuze. Although I am interested in how this idea can be established, my primary concern is with something more basic: how the idea can even be properly thought.
  2. In the course of exploring this issue, which I do partly by borrowing some ideas about logical syntax from Wittgenstein’s Tractatus, I try to show how there can be dialogue between analytic philosophers and those of other traditions.
