    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Countless texts from world literature teach us that at the heart of every intimate encounter there is an inexpressible moment that transcends language. The nature of this inexpressibility and how, despite all obstacles, it can be put in words, varies historically and culturally. Using transformation theory and Luhmann’s concept of intimacy, this volume examines specific kinds of inexpressibility.
