Derrida and the Inheritance of Democracy (Studies in Continental Thought) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Derrida and the Inheritance of Democracy provides a theoretically rich and accessible account of Derrida's political philosophy. Demonstrating the key role inheritance plays in Derrida's thinking, Samir Haddad develops a general theory of inheritance and shows how it is essential to democratic action. He transforms Derrida's well-known idea of "democracy to come" into active engagement with democratic traditions. Haddad focuses on issues such as hospitality, justice, normativity, violence, friendship, birth, and the nature of democracy as he reads these deeply political writings.

About the Author

Samir Haddad is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Fordham University.
