On the name by Jacques Derrida( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 2019 in English and Italian and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Passions: "An Oblique Offering" is a reflection on the question of the response, on the duty and obligation to respond, and on the possibility of not responding - which is to say, on the ethics and politics of responsibility. Sauf le nom (Post Scriptum) considers the problematics of naming and alterity, or transcendence, raised inevitably by a rigorous negative theology. Much of the text is organized around close readings of the poetry of Angelus Silesius. The final essay, Khora, explores the problem of space or spacing, of the word khora in Plato's Timaeus. Even as it places and makes possible nothing less than the whole world, khora opens and dislocates, displaces, all the categories that govern the production of that world, from naming to gender. In addition to readers in philosophy and literature, Khora will be of special interest to those in the burgeoning field of "space studies" (architecture, urbanism, design)
Heidegger : the question of being and history by Jacques Derrida( Book )

12 editions published between 2016 and 2019 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few philosophers held greater fascination for Jacques Derrida than Martin Heidegger, and in this book we get an extended look at Derrida's first real encounters with him. Delivered over nine sessions in 1964 and 1965 at the École Normale Supérieure, these lectures offer a glimpse of the young Derrida first coming to terms with the German philosopher and his magnum opus, Being and Time. They provide not only crucial insight into the gestation of some of Derrida's primary conceptual concerns--indeed, it is here that he first uses, with some hesitation, the word "deconstruction"--But an analysis of Being and Time that is of extraordinary value to readers of Heidegger or anyone interested in modern philosophy. Derrida performs an almost surgical reading of the notoriously difficult text, marrying pedagogical clarity with patient rigor and acting as a lucid guide through the thickets of Heidegger's prose. At this time in intellectual history, Heidegger was still somewhat unfamiliar to French readers, and Being and Time had only been partially translated into French. Here Derrida mostly uses his own translations, giving his own reading of Heidegger that directly challenges the French existential reception initiated earlier by Sartre. He focuses especially on Heidegger's Destruktion (which Derrida would translate both into "solicitation" and "deconstruction") of the history of ontology, and indeed of ontology as such, concentrating on passages that call for a rethinking of the place of history in the question of being, and developing a radical account of the place of metaphoricity in Heidegger's thinking. This is a rare window onto Derrida's formative years, and in it we can already see the philosopher we've come to recognize--one characterized by a bravura of exegesis and an inventiveness of thought that are particularly and singularly his."--Publisher's description
The death penalty by Jacques Derrida( Book )

in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this newest installment in Chicagos series of Jacques Derridas seminars, the renowned philosopher attempts one of his most ambitious goals: the first truly philosophical argument against the death penalty. While much has been written against the death penalty, Derrida contends that Western philosophy is massively, if not always overtly, complicit with a logic in which a sovereign state has the right to take a life. Haunted by this notion, he turns to the key places where such logic has been established - and to the place it has been most effectively challenged: literature. With his signature genius and patient yet dazzling readings of an impressive breadth of texts, Derrida examines everything from the Bible to Plato to Camus to Jean Genet, with special attention to Kant and postWorld War II juridical texts, to draw the landscape of death penalty discourses. Keeping clearly in view the death rows and execution chambers of the United States, he shows how arguments surrounding cruel and unusual punishment depend on what he calls an 'anesthesial logic, ' which has also driven the development of death penalty technology from the French guillotine to lethal injection. Confronting a demand for philosophical rigor, he pursues provocative analyses of the shortcomings of abolitionist discourse. Above all, he argues that the death penalty and its attendant technologies are products of a desire to put an end to one of the most fundamental qualities of our finite existence: the radical uncertainty of when we will die. Arriving at a critical juncture in history - especially in the United States, one of the last Christian-inspired democracies to resist abolition - The Death Penalty is both a timely response to an important ethical debate and a timeless addition to Derridas esteemed body of work"--Unedited summary from book jacket
Sovereignties in question : the poetics of Paul Celan by Jacques Derrida( Book )

15 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together five encounters. They include the date or signature and its singularity; the notion of the trace; structures of futurity and the "to come"; language and questions of translation; such speech acts as testimony and promising; the possibility of the impossible; and the poem as addressed and destined beyond knowledge
Ré-inventer le réel by Thomas Dutoit( )

1 edition published in 1999 in French and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Au mieux, une définition nous apprend que le réel est ce qui précède le langage. Celui-ci invente le réel. Depuis le structuralisme, au moins, les sciences humaines, face à cette situation, s'y résignent de manière implicite ou explicite. Le réel n'est plus : il est définitivement enfoui sous la triple détermination de la culture, de l'histoire, de l'idéologie. Pourtant, certains contemporains - artistes, écrivains, penseurs - tentent de ressusciter le réel. L'entreprise est nécessairement te
Heidegger, la question de l'Être et l'Histoire cours de l'ENS-Ulm, 1964-1965 by Jacques Derrida( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Soumettre d'abord l'analyse du philosophique à la rigueur de la preuve, aux chaînes de la conséquence, aux contraintes internes du système : articuler, premier signe de pertinence, en effet. Ne plus méconnaître ce que la philosophie voulait laisser tomber ou réduire, sous le nom d'effets, à son dehors ou à son dessous (effets "formels" - "vêtements" ou "voiles" du discours - "institutionnels", "politiques", "pulsionnels", etc) : en opérant autrement, sans elle ou contre elle, interpréter la philosophie en effet. Déterminer la spécificité de l'après-coup philosophique -le retard, la répétition, la représentation, la réaction, la réflexion qui rapportent la philosophie à ce qu'elle entend néanmoins nommer, constituer, s'approprier comme ses propres objets (autres "discours", "savoirs", "pratiques", "histoires", etc) assignés à résidence régionale : délimiter la philosophie en effet. Ne plus prétendre à la neutralité transparente et arbitrale, tenir compte de l'efficace philosophique, et de ses armes, instruments et stratagèmes, intervenir de façon pratique et critique : faire travailler la philosophie en effet. L'effet en question ne se laisse donc plus dominer ici par ce que la philosophie arraisonne sous ce nom : produit simplement second d'une cause première ou dernière, apparence dérivée ou inconsistante d'une essence. Il n'y a plus, soumis d'avance à la décision philosophique, un sens, voire une polysémie de l'effet

The death penalty by Jacques Derrida( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first volume of his extraordinary analysis of the death penalty, Jacques Derrida began a journey toward an ambitious end: the first truly philosophical argument against the death penalty. Exploring an impressive breadth of thought, he traced a deeply entrenched logic throughout the whole of Western philosophy that has justified the state's right to take a life. He also marked literature as a crucial place where this logic has been most effectively challenged. In this second and final volume, Derrida builds on these analyses toward a definitive argument against capital punishment. Of central importance in this second volume is Kant's explicit justification of the death penalty in the Metaphysics of Morals. Thoroughly deconstructing Kant's position which holds the death penalty as exemplary of the eye-for-an-eye Talionic law Derrida exposes numerous damning contradictions and exceptions. Keeping the current death penalty in the United States in view, he further explores the "anesthesial logic" he analyzed in volume one, addressing the themes of cruelty and pain through texts by Robespierre and Freud, reading Heidegger, and in a fascinating, improvised final session the nineteenth-century Spanish Catholic thinker Donoso Cortes. Ultimately, Derrida shows that the rationality of the death penalty as represented by Kant involves an imposition of knowledge and calculability on a fundamental condition of non-knowledge that we don't otherwise know what or when our deaths will be. In this way, the death penalty acts out a phantasm of mastery over one's own death. Derrida's thoughts arrive at a particular moment in history: when the death penalty in the United States is the closest it has ever been to abolition, and yet when the arguments on all sides are as confused as ever. His powerful analysis will prove to be a paramount contribution to this debate as well as a lasting entry in his celebrated oeuvre

La peine de mort : séminaire by Jacques Derrida( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in French and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "Le présent volume édite la première des deux années du séminaire que Jacques Derrida consacra au sujet de la peine de mort (en 1999-2000 et 2000-2001). Présenté intégralement dans le cadre du programme "Philosophie et épistémologie" à l'Ecole des hautes études en sciences sociales, à Paris, ce séminaire a aussi fait l'objet d'un enseignement aux Etats-Unis. Il précède immédiatement celui consacré à "La bête et le souverain" (2001-2003), déjà publié. Il relève de l'ensemble commencé en 1997-1998 sous le titre "Le parjure et le pardon", qui appartient lui-même à un ensemble plus long, "Questions de responsabilité", initié en 1989 et finalisé en 2003 avec la dernière année d'enseignement de Jacques Derrida. Voici le résumé qu'en donnait Jacques Derrida dans l'Annuaire de l'EHESS 1999-2000 : "La problématique engagée sous ce titre "Le parjure et le pardon" au cours des deux années passées nous a conduits à privilégier cette fois la grande question de la peine de mort. C'était nécessaire au moins dans la mesure où la peine dite capitale met en jeu, dans l'imminence d'une sanction irréversible, avec ce qui paraît tenu pour l'impardonnable, les concepts de souveraineté (de l'Etat ou du chef d'Etat - droit de vie et de mort sur le citoyen), de droit de grâce, etc. Nous avons étudié la peine de mort, de façon au moins préliminaire, aussi bien à partir de grands exemples paradigmatiques (Socrate, Jésus, Hallâj, Jeanne d'Arc) que de textes canoniques, de la Bible à Camus ou à Badinter, en passant par Beccaria, Locke, Kant, Hugo - à qui nous avons consacré de nombreuses séances -, Genet, etc., et surtout de textes juridiques d'après la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Un grand nombre de conventions internationales recommandent en effet la fin des châtiments cruels et des tortures, dont la peine de mort, sans jamais en faire obligation aux Etats dont la souveraineté devait être respectée. Nous nous sommes intéressés aux mouvements abolitionnistes, à leur logique et à leur rhétorique, et surtout aux Etats-Unis dont l'histoire récente, voire très actuelle, a requis de nombreuses analyses - notamment depuis la décision de la Cour suprême qui, en 1972, jugea inconstitutionnelle l'application de la peine de mort ("cruel and unusual punishment"), jusqu'à la reprise amplifiée et spectaculaire des exécutions depuis 1977, etc. Nous avons accordé beaucoup d'attention à l'exception des Etats-Unis. Trois concepts problématiques ont dominé notre questionnement à travers les textes et les exemples étudiés : la souveraineté, l'exception et la cruauté. Autre question conductrice : pourquoi l'abolitionnisme ou la condamnation de la peine de mort, dans son principe même, n'ont-ils (presque) jamais, à ce jour, trouvé une place proprement philosophique dans l'architectonique d'un grand discours philosophique en tant que tel ? Comment interpréter ce fait hautement signifiant ?"

Au mieux, une définition nous apprend que le réel est ce qui précède le langage. Celui-ci invente le réel. Depuis le structuralisme, au moins, les sciences humaines, face à cette situation, s'y résignent de manière implicite ou explicite. Le réel n'est plus : il est définitivement enfoui sous la triple détermination de la culture, de l'histoire, de l'idéologie. Pourtant, certains contemporains -- artistes, écrivains, penseurs -- tentent de ressusciter le réel. L'entreprise est nécessairement teintée de pathos et souligne la persistance d'une nostalgie pour le réel. On est préoccupé par la primauté du banal, l'attrait de la quiddité... Le colloque a tenté de cerner ces différentes ré-inventions du réel. Dans quel sens et dans quelle mesure sont-elles gouvernées par le pathos, la douleur, par le sentiment qu'il est urgent de regagner un tenant-lieu du réel ?

Aporias : dying--awaiting (one another at) the "limits of truth" (mourir--s'attendre aux "limites de la vérité") by Jacques Derrida( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The foreign or the foreigner has always been considered a figure of death, and death a figure of the foreign. How this figure has been treated in the analytic of death in Heidegger's Being and Time is explored by Derrida in an analytical tour de force that will not fail to set new standards for the discussion of Heidegger and for dealing with philosophical texts, with their limits and their aporias. The detailed discussion of the theoretical presuppositions of recent cultural histories of death (Aries, for example) and of psychological theorizations of death (including Freud's) broaden the scope of Derrida's investigation and indicate the impact of the aporia of "my death" for any possible theory."--Jacket
