From Adieu à Emmanuel Levinas in: Research in Phenomenology Volume 28 Issue 1 Year
This volume contains the speech given by Derrida at Emmanuel Levinas’s funeral on December 27,and his contribution to a colloquium organized to mark the first anniversary of Levinas’s death. For both thinkers, the word adieu names a fundamental characteristic of human being: In this book, Derrida extends his work on Levinas in previously unexplored directions via a radical rereading of Totality and Infinity and other texts, including the lesser-known talmudic readings.
He argues that Levinas, especially in Totality and Infinity, bequeaths to us an “immense treatise of hospitality,” a meditation on the welcome offered to the other. The conjunction of an ethics of pure prescription with the idea of an infinite and absolute hospitality confronts us with the most pressing political, juridical, and institutional concerns of our time.
What, then, is an ethics and what is a politics of hospitality? And what, if it ever eemmanuel, would be a hospitality surpassing any ethics and any politics we know?
From Adieu à Emmanuel Levinas
As always, Derrida raises these questions levinass the most explicit of terms, moving back and forth between philosophical argument and the political discussion of immigration laws, peace, the state of Israel, xenophobia—reminding us with every move that thinking is not a matter of neutralizing abstraction, but a gesture of hospitality for what happens and still may happen.

Indeed, Derrida’s fame nearly reached the status of a media star, with hundreds of people filling levias to hear him speak, with films and televisions programs devoted to him, with countless books and articles devoted to his thinking. Beside critique, Derridean deconstruction consists in an attempt to re-conceive the difference that divides self-reflection or self-consciousness. But even more than the re-conception of difference, and perhaps more importantly, deconstruction works towards preventing the worst violence.
It attempts to render justice. Indeed, deconstruction is relentless in this pursuit since justice is impossible to achieve. Books by Jacques Derrida. Trivia About Adieu to Emmanuel No trivia or quizzes yet. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
