E' il lavoro più recente di Derrida, dedicato a uno dei grandi temi della filosofia morale: l'amicizia. Tutto gira attorno all'interpretazione e allo smontaggio di una frase che Montaigne riprende da Aristotele: "Oh miei amici, non c'è nessun amico". Questa che appare una manifesta contraddizione si rivela invece come il motore paradossale delle nostre idee principali riguardo al conflitto, alla politica, al dialogo. Derrida ricava così da una frase un'intera tradizione di pensiero, da Aristotele, attraverso Nietzsche, fino a Blanchot e ne indica lo sfondo implicito e l'alone di interdetto che la accompagna e la lascia aperta per noi.

I know I'm supposed to find Derrida interesting and challenging and stimulating... etc.. Maybe I'm just not intelligent enough to follow his line of argument, certainly my background is not in philosophy. There is surely however an unnecessary level of obfuscation in the language Derrida uses in thi Leggi tutto
An amazing read, made even more vivid in the current Mediterranean context.
Intriguing and provocative. as always.
Probably the peak of post-war liberal miserabilism Ive read so far. I see this book more as an elaborate attempt to mourn and impose the ethical necessity of the impossibility of reconciling difference with a universalist humanist project.
Strong two stars - meaning 'it was OK'. I don't really know what I expected. Perhaps I'm not lettered enough to understand all the references and fully appreciate them. However, I think the description here on Goodreads is overstating a bit (as usual), and this work doesn't really provide any 'chall Leggi tutto
I read this book and I loved it. It will be a book that I will read each year. This book is a must read for the rebellious intellectual. To be different because you are. This book is a rite of passage, after you have read it. You will be open to so much more, French authors like Bataille, Foucault,

My introduction to Derrida (I know I'm late)(God help me...). Began my love-affair with a ghost; making me accutely aware of all the ghosts haunting my life.
