Abstract

Abstract In this paper the word mystery refers to "what" cannot be understood or intellectually grasped; a mystery is concealed and unavailable for direct explanation. The questions the discussion raises address the decisive differences that sensibilities and feelings often make in our encounters with mysteries as well as occurrences of mystery that seem undetermined by differences of sensibility. The main topics are: mystery and eternal return, contexts of mystery, another kind of speaking about mystery (that take account of one's own sensibility), turning away from Nietzsche and Heidegger and toward a prioritizing of feeling.
