"Of Hospitality provides us with a glimpse of Jacques Derrida as not only the brilliant thinker and writer readers have long admired but as the masterful lecturer and pedagogue his students have long known... Of Hospitality should find a welcome audience not only among faithful readers of Derrida but among all those who are open enough to hear the knock at their borders or their doors." - L'Esprit Createur "Both lectures [in the book] deserve credit not only for representing a significant step in Derrida's reflection on ethics and politics but also for prompting us to begin our own deconstructive work and rethink our identity." - Symploke


These two lectures by Jacques Derrida, Foreigner Question and Step of Hospitality/No Hospitality, derive from a series of seminars on hospitality conducted by Derrida in Paris, January 1996. His seminars, in France and in America, have become something of an institution over the years, the place where he presents the ongoing evolution of his thought in a remarkable combination of thoroughly mapped-out positions, sketches of new material, and exchanges with students and interlocutors. As has become a pattern in Derrida's recent work, the form of this presentation is a self-conscious enactment of its content. The book consists of two texts on facing pages. Invitation by Anne Dufourmantelle appears on the left (an invitation that of course originates in a response), clarifying and inflecting Derrida s response on the right. The interaction between them not only enacts the hospitality under discussion, but preserves something of the rhythms of teaching.

Close Reading without all the New Criticism Baggage 17. August 2008
Von Nathan P. Gilmour - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
If you're looking for nihilism, denials of metaphysics, or other such silliness, this book has none of them. If you're looking for insightful close-readings of some Platonic dialogues and their ethical implications, this book does that quite well.

Derrida's two essays deal with the foreigner in Plato, and he does quite a nice job of articulating the tensions inherent in hospitality--the home into which the stranger enters is my home, but I have to yield place to the stranger while remaining solidly the proprietor of the home. That tension extends to national identities, theological questions, and all sorts of other fun stuff by the end of the book.

I still have not read the commentary in the facing columns of the book, so read some other reviews if you'd like to know about them.
