Abstract

200 directed at an effort, not of assuring the self-same message, but of being a site of performance. Retrieval's communication is simply the production of an effect (Wirkung) from within the doing, from within the exercise. Perhaps, in the end, Caputo knows this; perhaps he knows that the attentiveness to the flux is inseparable from a communicative structure. And one would assume that Caputo knows also the danger in making the call to vigilance another form of arresting the flux.
