[E]choing Theodor Adorno's Negative Dialectics, Gál writes of a permanent gap between concept and thing. We never know the world as it is. More generally, [he] expresses an ontology of becoming, of a world of movement and change, where even "the expected comes unexpectedly".

 

—Jane Bennett
 
 

In our millennium, a time of reduction and minimization, the aphorism has rightly returned. Its master is Róbert Gál.
