Aporias: Dying--Awaiting (One Another at) the "Limits of Truth" (Mourir--S'attendre aux "Limites De La Vérité")
Stanford University Press (1993)
|Abstract||'My death - is it possible?' - That is the question asked, explored, and analysed in Jacques Derrida's new book. How is this question to be understood? How and by whom can it be asked, can it be quoted, can it be an appropriate question, and can it be asked in the appropriate moment, the moment of 'my death'? This book bears a special significance because in it Derrida focuses on an issue that has informed the whole of his work. How the figure of death has been treated in the analytic of death in Heidegger's Being and Time is explored by Derrida in an analytical tour de force that will not fail to set new standards for the discussion of Heidegger and for dealing with philosophical texts, with their limits and their aporias. The detailed discussion of the theoretical presuppositions of recent cultural histories of death broaden the scope of Derrida's investigation and indicate the impact of the aporia of 'my death' for any possible theory.|
