Negative Knowledge in Twentieth Century Philosophy. An Example of Philosophy as Transformative Practice

How can we describe the transformative potential when we realize that we somehow, as Kant and Lyotard put it, find ourselves on an island of knowledge in the middle of no-knowledge? This is the issue raised by several contemporary philosophers, such as Wittgenstein, Adorno, or Merleau-Ponty.
