(p.2) (p.3) 1 Avoiding the Void
The Fate of Place

Edward S. Casey

University of California Press

This chapter analyzes conceptions of void and place in cosmogonic accounts of creation. The void is regarded as the scene of the becoming of place. It is posited not as the first place but as the first becoming of place itself. Just as the space posited in a transcendental deduction shows itself capable of providing particular places, the void of cosmogonic accounts is on its way to the determination of particular places. The void makes provision for places; it is place in its provisionality.

Keywords:   void, cosmogony, creation, place
