The mutual reflection of semiotic findings with basic elements of Kant's philosophy provides a change of perspective concerning the role of language in emancipatory processes. The impossibility of both ultimate justification and relativistic opportunism is turned towards the possibility of an ethos of communication which invigorates itself on the dominance's constitutive lack. This is connected with insights into the function of domination which orchestrates the exchange of equivalents as just order with regard to the obligation of symbolic recompense. The predictable momentum of this enactment bears on a mathem of power to which the ruling class however succumbs. In connection with a relecture of the notions of the Beautiful and the Sublime this argumentation delivers new perspectives on the critique of dominance.
