“But the openness of the fragment is not temporary and cannot be repaired. If it were a whole the fragment would not be a fragment anymore; if it were a part it could be completed and made into a whole. Because it is neither a whole nor a part, it remains resistant to closure. An encounter with it is possible only when the whole, as a structure of meaning accessible to the understanding, is no longer a possibility: outside the whole is not even no longer there, but fades into oblivion (1996: 26)”.
