: In EthicsâPoliticsâSubjectivity
, Simon Critchley takes up three questions at the centre of contemporary theoretical debate: What is ethical experience? What can be said of the subject who has this experience? What, if any, is the relation of ethical experience to politics? Through spirited confrontations with major thinkers, such as Lacan, Nancy, Rorty, and, in particular, Levinas and Derrida, Critchley finds answers in a nuanced âethics of finitudeâ and defends the political possibilities of deconstruction. Democracy, economics, friendship, and technology are all considered anew in Critchleyâs bold excursions on the meaning and value of recent French philosophy.
