The epilogue looks back at the picture of the nonidentical that emerges from this book, and at what connects the different dimensions of this rich notion. Reflecting on Adorno’s quest for transcendence and on his abhorrence of analytic thought that cuts it off, it paints the gesture of the nonidentical as that of a certain epistemic modesty, an acknowledgement that there is more to the world than what we can grasp, combined with a firm ethical stance. The epilogue cites the “feeling of the world” that Adorno ascribes to aesthetic experience as an adumbration of non-conceptual cognition, and underscores the importance of feeling in Adorno’s epistemology.
