Autorentext

John Llewelyn has been Reader in Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh, Visiting Professor of Philosophy at the University of Memphis, and the Arthur J. Schmitt Distinguished Visiting Professor of Philosophy at Loyola University of Chicago. Among his publications are Beyond
Metaphysics? The Hermeneutic Circle in Contemporary Continental Philosophy; Derrida on the Threshold of Sense; The Middle Voice of Ecological Conscience; Emmanuel Levinas: The Genealogy of Ethics; and The HypoCritical Imagination: Between Kant and Levinas.



Zusammenfassung
If not simple opposition or simple juxtaposition, what is the relation between the writings to which Derrida and Levinas appose their signatures? What would each endorse in the writings of the other? What is it to sign and endorse? How does one assume responsibility, and how does one avoid assuming it? This book addresses these questions.
