Derrida and Our Animal Others: Derrida's Final Seminar, the Beast and the Sovereign (Studies in Continental Thought) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jacques Derrida's final seminars were devoted to animal life and political sovereignty--the connection being that animals slavishly adhere to the law while kings and gods tower above it and that this relationship reveals much about humanity in the West. David Farrell Krell offers a detailed account of these seminars, placing them in the context of Derrida's late work and his critique of Heidegger. Krell focuses his discussion on questions such as death, language, and animality. He concludes that Heidegger and Derrida share a commitment to finding new ways of speaking and thinking about human and animal life.
