520    This dissertation examines the intersection of language 
       and finitude in the work of Martin Heidegger, Maurice 
       Blanchot, and Gilles Deleuze. I analyze first how the 
       voice serves in their writings as the figure for this 
       intersection. Then I demonstrate how their work raises the
       question of whether finitude requires figuration or a 
       "scene" of presentation in order to be thought 
520    As the intersection of language and finitude, the voice, I
       argue, is a properly Heideggerian problematic. It emerges 
       in its particularity as a figure with Heidegger's text. 
       One is then able to trace a reception of this problematic 
       in the texts of Blanchot and Deleuze, who each in their 
       own way offer different reconfigurations of the original 
       relation conceived by Heidegger. The writings treated in 
       support of this genealogy include: Heidegger's  Being and 
       Time (1927), Introduction to Metaphysics (1935), and 
       Holderlin's Hymn "The Ister" (1942); Blanchot's The Space 
       of Literature (1955) and The Infinite Conversation (1969),
       and; Deleuze's Difference and Repetition (1968), 
       Expressionism in Philosophy: Spinoza  (1968), and The 
       Logic of Sense (1969) 
520    Concluding the dissertation, and keeping open a space for 
       further research, is a discussion of Luce Irigaray's The 
       Forgetting of Air in Martin Heidegger (1983). Her text 
       contains a far-reaching critique of the Heideggerian voice
       and poses a serious challenge for any attempt to approach 
       the voice in terms of its ethical and political 
520    A consideration of the voice from within this 
       constellation of texts, including Irigaray's critique, 
       offers us several standpoints from which to reassess the 
       problem of language in not only Heidegger's thought, but 
       also in that of Blanchot and especially Deleuze. We learn 
       the notion of the "linguistic turn" is inadequate to the 
       movement of what I call "the question of language" in 
       Heidegger. We can also begin to understand Deleuze as 
       primarily a philosopher of language. Both Blanchot and 
       Irigaray excavate the exigency to imagine a new relation 
       to language and a new kind of speaking. All of the texts 
       read in this thesis make possible the emergence of an 
       ethico-political inflection of the voice untied to 
       metaphysical subjectivity
