Abstract: This chapter explores the limits of the sayable in the context of Zen stories, arguing that the very fact that Zen addresses our mode of prereflective engagement with the world-a mode of engagement that is in important ways precognitive-means that much of what Zen has to teach us must be shown, and not said. This language, of course, is redolent of the Tractatus.
