but ever since Aristotle suddenly hit on the manifold aporia of touch (aporia, he said then, and aporēseie); ever since he, Aristotle, foresaw all the obscurities of the tangible: touch isn’t clear, ouk estin endēlon, he says furthermore; it’s adēlon, inapparent, obscure, secret, nocturnal. [Jacques Derrida, On Touching-Jean-Luc Nancy, 4]
