Farewell to the Truth A Process of Liberation through Nothingness

Héctor Sevilla Godínez


This article offers a strategy of human liberation centering itself on an open attitude before nothingness, its recognition, and valuation for personal life. Far from being a religious, fundamentalist, or proselytizing proposal, the text presents an argument against the attitude of searching for the Truth, understanding it as the absolute certainty. It starts off from the idea that man must relativize all processes of interpretation, this is to say, all hermeneutic exercises; with this, it is warned, it will be possible to liberate oneself from the exclusively linguistic search and from the linear or univocal learning. From this will be derived the contemplation of the option of being concerned for oneself, such as Foucault suggested, and of finding audible traces in silence which invite towards the comprehension of a nihilistic logic that is liberating from enslaving structures.
