Between Heidegger, Levinas & Derrida
Feb 09, 2013 05:00 PM
The projects of each of these thinkers can be said to be both the same and yet fundamentally different. Together they share a radical re-reading of the history of metaphysics in order to lay bare its unthought; displacing a thinking of the logos in favour of a philosophy of difference, understood in a myriad of ways. While they share a common language and common themes such as logos, other, trace, event; the manner in which these themes are imagined is radically different in the work of each thinker.
These three philosophers were engaged in an ongoing conversation, which took the form not only of critique, but more importantly, of transformation. A conversation which, at its heart, asks: what are the limits and responsibilities of philosophy itself?
Between Heidegger, Levinas & Derrida seeks to open a space between their work in order to explore their complex relations, common themes and continued relevance.
