Feldman offers an elegant account of how philosophical language appears to produce the very thing it claims to describe.

She demonstrates that conscience can only be described and understood through tropes and figures of langugae. If description in literal terms is impossible, as Binding Words convincingly argues, perhaps there is no such thing. But if the word conscience has no tangible referent, then how can conscience be constructed as binding?

Does our conscience move us to do things, or is this yet another figure of speech?Hobbess Leviathan, Hegels Phenomenology of Spirit, and Heideggers Being and Time dramatize consciences relation to language and knowledge, morality and duty, and ontology. Feldman investigates how, within these works, conscience is described as binding upon us while at the same time asking how texts themselves may be read as binding.
