6 It's a novel of waiting, then, and waiting without any clear sense of what would constitute the longed-for arrival. A Beckettian situation, but not lightened by any Beckettian humour. Thanks to Derrida, we can propose a name for what Dostoevsky is waiting for: the arrivant, which we might translate into English as both 'arrival' and 'one who arrives' (it is also worth bearing in mind that the word arriver can mean 'happen'). Let me remind you of what Derrida has written about the arrivant in Aporias (as with all my citations, I unfortunately do not have the space to reconstitute its context or to discuss it in detail): The new arrivant: this word can, indeed, mean the neutrality of that which arrives, but also the singularity of who arrives, he or she who comes, coming to be where he or she was not expected, where one was awaiting him or her without waiting for him or her, without expecting it, without knowing what or whom to expect, what or whom I am waiting for - and such is hospitality itself, hospitality toward the event.

It is important to be as clear as possible here, because a certain general understanding of Kant talks quickly about things in themselves and noumena without giving enough attention to the X.

Experience is thus the X which lies outside the concept A, and on which rests the possibility of the synthesis of the predicate 'weight' (B) with the c~ncept (A). (AS) As the passage substituted for this one in the second edition of the Critique makes clearer, A and B here are connected contingently as parts of a whole which Kant calls experience. e. a posteriori, empirical judgements), X just is X-perience which always provides the missing term on which the understanding relies for the extension of knowledge.
