The thought of death and the memory of war by M Crépon( )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 878 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"War lays bare death and our relation to it. And in the wars--or more precisely the memories of war--of the twentieth century, images of the deaths of countless faceless or nameless others eclipse the singularity of each victim's death as well as the end of the world as such that each death signifies. Marc Crepon's The Thought of Death and the Memory of War is a call to resist such images in which death is no longer actual death since it happens to anonymous others, and to seek instead a world in which mourning the other whose mortality we always already share points us toward a cosmopolitics. Crepon pursues this path toward a cosmopolitics of mourning through readings of works by Freud, Heidegger, Sartre, Patocka, Levinas, Derrida, and Ric & oelig;ur, and others. The movement among these writers, Crepon shows, marks a way through--and against--twentieth-century interpretation to argue that no war, genocide, or neglect of people is possible without suspending how one relates to the death of another human being. A history of a critical strain in contemporary thought, this book is, as Rodolphe Gasche says in the Preface, "a profound meditation on what constitutes evil and a rigorous and illuminating reflection on death, community, and world." The translation of this work received financial support from the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs."

Murderous consent : on the accommodation of violent death by M Crépon( )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2020 in English and French and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Murderous Consent details our implication in violence we do not directly inflict but in which we are structurally complicit: famines, civil wars, political repression in far-away places, and war, as it's classically understood. Marc Crépon insists on a bond between ethics and politics and attributes violence to our treatment of the two as separate spheres. We repeatedly resist the call to responsibility, as expressed by the appeal--by peoples across the world--for the care and attention that their vulnerability enjoins. But Crépon argues that this resistance is not ineluctable, and the book searches for ways that enable us to mitigate it, through rebellion, kindness, irony, critique, and shame. In the process, he engages with a range of writers, from Camus, Sartre, and Freud, to Stefan Zweig and Karl Kraus, to Kenzaburo Oe, Emmanuel Levinas and Judith Butler. The resulting exchange between philosophy and literature enables Crépon to delineate the contours of a possible/impossible ethicosmopolitics--an ethicosmopolitics to come.Pushing against the limits of liberal rationalism, Crépon calls for a more radical understanding of interpersonal responsibility. Not just a work of philosophy but an engagement with life as it's lived, Murderous Consent works to redefine our global obligations, articulating anew what humanitarianism demands and what an ethically grounded political resistance might mean
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

The death penalty by Jacques Derrida( )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 91 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 Cortés. 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."--Unedited summary from book jacket

L'épreuve de la haine : essai sur le refus de la violence by M Crépon( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in French and English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

« La violence n'a pas subitement surgi dans nos vies avec les attentats de janvier et de novembre 2015. Aucune de nos relations, qu'elles soient familiales, scolaires, professionnelles, morales ou politiques, n'y échappe. Mais la terreur instaurée par les attaques terroristes est une épreuve sans précédent. D'abord parce qu'elle provoque la hantise de la répétition : nous savons qu'à la terrasse d'un café, dans une salle de spectacle ou dans les transports en commun, la violence peut à nouveau frapper. La peur, le désir de vengeance et de justice accompagnent notre volonté d'en finir avec ce que nous considérons comme le mal radical. Comment pourrait-il en aller autrement? Et qui nous le reprocherait? Mais le risque est alors d'autoriser les emportements, les jugements précipités, les décisions aveugles et, finalement, de répondre à la violence par la violence. Faire face à la haine est un défi pour nos sociétés. Dans ce livre courageux, à contre-courant de bien des discours actuels, et convoquant toutes les ressources de la philosophie, Marc Crépon défend le principe du refus de la violence, du refus de consentir à son oeuvre et à la culture de destruction qui l'accompagne. Les grandes figures de la non-violence que furent Jaurès, Romain Rolland, Martin Luther King et Mandela nous offrent des modèles et prouvent que la terreur n'est ni invincible ni fatale. »--
