This chapter presents some closing thoughts of the concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of the book. The book has addressed questions that might have been explored at much greater length. Nonetheless, doing so would have obscured the sheer variety and energy of Lacoue-Labarthe's writing, and thereby obscured his clarity. The writing in question is full of significant turning-points, autobiographical or autothanatographical texts, and references to its own status, not least in the repeated attempts to take a distance from philosophy. Lacoue-Labarthe's thinking of mimesis, in short, reaches far beyond our usual definitions of imitations and models, originals and copies. Several conclusions proceed from this point: not least that Lacoue-Labarthe's 'mimesis' is not at all to be understood as cognate with representationalist or realist approaches to literature. The two thinkers' dialogues on the notion of the stage as such an originary or irreducible space rather—than theatre, with its connotations of vision—speak to their investigations in this area.
