Example text

China seems to be this “final reality which the artist comes to recognize in his maturity,” Miller writes (3). China is where the artist can live out “his unconscious desires, wishes, dreams” (3). These opposite realms, traditional present and full present (or China), have, according to my reading of Miller, their respective representatives in human and inhuman where the latter is the antithesis of the former: the inhuman becomes a “traitor to the human race” (BS, 160). The inhuman’s “betrayal” takes a twofold form.

This liberates us to being reborn in the current moment. It frees us from the foot race with time. “There is never anything but the present,” declares Miller proudly (WOL, 81). The inhuman artist In Tropic of Cancer, Miller introduces his idiosyncratic term inhuman. It seems that it is precisely his inhuman, which stands for a new type of creative artist, who carries in him the metaphysical essence of Miller’s philosophy. Indeed, it is only in the light of Miller’s Henry Miller’s Inhuman Philosophy 15 inhuman theme through which our previous distinctions between the traditional and full present, as well as his China-notion, unveil conclusively.

The narrator’s representation of the trauma that stimulated his (repeated) conversion can only be approximate, a standing-for-truth and the “broken parts” of his identity rather than Truth itself (SSLH, 84). ” To get beneath the facts I would have had to be an artist, and one doesn’t become an artist overnight. First you have to be crushed, to have your conflicting points of view annihilated. You have to be wiped out as a human being in order to be born again as an individual. (28) For the narrator, “getting beneath the facts” involves tapping into the “greater reality,” grappling with essence rather than substance.
