The philosophy of Derrida by Mark Dooley( )

32 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 2,553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than forty years Jacques Derrida has attempted to unsettle and disturb the presumptions underlying many of our most fundamental philosophical, political, and ethical conventions. In The Philosophy of Derrida, Mark Dooley examines Derrida's large body of work to provide an overview of his core philosophical ideas and a balanced appraisal of their lasting impact. One of the author's primary aims is to make accessible Derrida's writings by discussing them in a vernacular that renders them less opaque and nebulous. Derrida's unusual writing style, which mixes literary and philosophical vocabularies, is shown to have hindered their interpretation and translation. Dooley situates Derrida squarely in the tradition of historicist, hermeneutic and linguistic thought, and Derrida's objectives and those of "deconstruction" are rendered considerably more convincing. While Derrida's works are ostensibly diverse, Dooley reveals an underlying cohesion to his writings
Questioning God( )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2,048 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jacques Derrida and an international group of scholars of religion explore postmodern thinking about God and consider the nature of forgiveness in relation to the paradoxes of the gift. Among the themes addressed by contributors are the possibilities of imagining God as unthinkable, imagining God as non-patriarchal, imagining a return to Augustine, and imagining an age in which praise is far more important than narrative. Questioning God moves readers beyond the parameters of metaphysical reason and modernist rationality as it attempts to think the questions of God and forgiveness in a postmodernist context"--Pub. info

23 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 1,914 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Counter Questioning Ethics is a major discussion by some of world's leading thinkers of some of the most important ethical issues confronting us today.

The contributors organize their discussions along the topics of hermeneutics, deconstruction, critical theory, psychoanalysi and the applications of ethics. Also included in this collection is an interview with Jacques Derrida which provides the most accessible insight into his thinking
A passion for the impossible : John D. Caputo in focus( )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,897 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Presenting the first systematic appraisal of the thought of John D. Caputo, one of America's most respected and controversial continental thinkers, this book brings together internationally renowned philosophers, theologians, and cultural critics. One highlight of the work is an interview with Jacques Derrida in which Derrida talks candidly about his reaction to Caputo's writings and spells out the implications for religion and the question of God after deconstruction. Caputo responds to the concerns expressed by his interlocutors in the same humorous, erudite, and challenging spirit for which he is known. The result is a lively and stimulating debate, covering themes in the philosophy of religion, deconstruction, political philosophy, feminism, and hermeneutics, as well as issues surrounding the work of Aquinas, Nietzsche, Kierkegaard, Heidegger, Foucault, Derrida, and Rorty."--Jacket

Moral matters : a philosophy of homecoming by Mark Dooley( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Moral Matters: A Philosophy of Homecoming is Mark Dooley's attempt to offer an alternative to 'Cyberia'. It is a book about home, memory and identity. At a time when people are rapidly disengaging from those forms of life which once bound them together, it can be argued that our happiness depends on saving and conserving them. We cannot flourish in isolation or by detaching from the social sphere which surrounds us. We cannot truly prosper or progress if we choose to forget where we came from or if we dismiss our inherited moral wisdom. And yet, in opting for loss, separation and homelessness, it seems we have done just that. We have opted for a rootless existence where alienation and amnesia are the norm. This powerful and passionate book shows how the alienated, 'postmodern' self can become re-rooted to time and place and restored to full humanity and happiness whilst moving in a virtual, hyperconnected world. In caring for creation, conserving culture and saving the sacred we can once again make our home in the world and experience the consolation of moving from loss to love."--Publisher's description
Conversations with Roger Scruton by Roger Scruton( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roger Scruton is arguably the greatest living English philosopher. A prolific author of fifty books, composer of two operas, controversial columnist and academic dissident, he has stood at the heart of the intellectual life of Britain (and to some extent in the USA) for more than forty years. Mark Dooley is Scruton's intellectual biographer. In these conversations Dooley coaxes Scruton to speak candidly about those whom he has loved and loathed, about his early philosophical influences and about those who have shaped him personally and intellectually. Going deeper than any previous autobiographical statements by Scruton, this book reveals what motivated the philosopher to embrace Kant and Wagner, how he came to know and admire thinkers like Iris Murdoch, Elizabeth Anscombe and Mary Midgely, and what he said to the underground seminars in Communist Czechoslovakia and the precise circumstances surrounding his arrest and expulsion from that country. It examines what Scruton really thinks of his intellectual and political adversaries and why he believes their message remains a recipe for social collapse. He provides answers as to why he left Birkbeck University College and why he eventually abandoned academia altogether. It also includes insights into daily life on Scruton's farm, his writing routines and his astonishing capacity to produce so prodigiously. Conversations with Roger Scruton asks questions which Roger Scruton has never answered before
Why Be a Catholic? by Mark Dooley( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Catholic Church has never been so deeply immersed in crisis - crisis of authority, priestly scandal, celibacy, hierarchy - stretching right up to the Vatican itself. Most people in authority are keeping quiet or squabbling among themselves. Mark Dooley has written a book of hope for those who have none. It is, he argues, only when the sacramental life of the local parishes is revitalised that renewal in the Church can be achieved
On cosmopolitanism and forgiveness by Jacques Derrida( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the world's most famous philosophers, Jacques Derrida, explores difficult questions in this book. Is it still possible to uphold international hospitality and justice in the face of increasing nationalism and civil strife in so many countries? Drawing on examples of treatment of minority groups in Europe, he probes the thinking that underlies much of the practice, and rhetoric, that informs cosmopolitanism. What have duties and rights to do with hospitality? Should hospitality be grounded in a private or public ethic, or even a religious one?"--Jacket

Questioning God. Indiana Series in the Philosophy of Religion by John D Caputo( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This volume, based on the second of Villanova's "Religion and Postmodernism" lecture series, brings Jacques Derrida together with an international group of philosophers and theologians, including John Milbank, Graham Ward, Richard Kearney, Kevin Hart, Jean Greisch and others, to discuss questions of forgiveness and God in a post-modern time. In addition to containing the first appearance in print of Derrida's recent work on the topic of "forgiveness," this volume also presents the first confrontation of deconstruction with Radical Orthodoxy. What are the connections between phenomenology and religion? What does it mean to forgive in a post-modern age? Is forgiveness a paradox today?In 15 lively essays, Jacques Derrida and an international group of scholars of religion explore thinking about God within the context and the economy of exchange that seems to govern repentance. If forgiveness is, as implied in the word, a giving and a gift, then is it only to be given to those who earn it, to those who repent and make amends? What does it mean to reduce forgiveness to a simple economic exchange? Can we only really forgive the unrepentant, those who have not earned it? Can we only properly forgive the unforgivable? Can the sense of debt and reciprocity that comes with forgiveness ever be avoided?Specific topics such as imagining God as unthinkable, imagining God as non-patriarchal, imagining a return to Augustine, and imagining an age where praise is far more important than narrative, amplify the religious and philosophical dialogues taking place in this timely volume. "Questioning God" moves readers beyond the parameters of metaphysical reason and modernist rationality as it unites post-modern attempts to conceive of God. The contributors include John D. Caputo, Jacques Derrida, Mark Dooley, Francis Schussler Fiorenza, Robert Gibbs, Jean Greisch, Kevin Hart, Richard Kearney, Cleo McNelly Kearns, John Milbank, Regina M. Schwartz, Michael J. Scanlon, and Graham Ward
