Abstract:

According to Roland Barthes, one of the surprising things about speech is that no erasing is involved, only going forward and only Yes. The same goes with becoming; it never erases and never goes back. There is only Yes in becoming. The beautiful bruise on a battered cheek raises the question of whether there are or whether there should be moral limitations to our enjoyment of everything’s irregularity, everything’s beauty. A specific battering can be considered immoral if there is some sort of moral attitude or theory that gives us to feel or to think that battering is bad, or if the event can be identified as an instance of battering. It is only the second condition that is relevant to the beauty of the battering.
