Chapter Summary

Is there a chance of survival for a metaphysics in the 21st century that has I-hood as its point of departure? This question is the focus of this chapter. It addresses the following five questions, the first of which is: who am I? The chapter describes I's relation to its unitary ground: who am I to God? Subsequently, the possibility of knowledge with respect to this ground is discussed: who is God to me? The chapter explains the issue of the possibility of the togetherness of I's with the assistance of Hölderlin: who are we? Finally, it presents a much-delayed question: who is God? The friction that has been ignored previously between the terms 'God' and 'unitary ground of I-hood' are also discussed.

Keywords: God; Hölderlin; I-hood; metaphysics
