    Exploring ‘Gift’ Theories for New Immigrants' Literacy Education in Taiwan.Ho‐Chia Chueh - 2012 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 44 (10):1110-1120.
    This paper addresses ‘the gift’ as the central concept in a discussion about the literacy education for new immigrants that has been developing in Taiwan since the early 1990s. The point of departure for this discussion is the advent of international marriages that are the consequence of new arrivals from Southeast Asia and China, and their effect guest/host relationship. In the first half of the article, I apply Marcel Mauss' idea of gift in order to examine the interactions within this (...)

    The Limits of Marion’s and Derrida’s Philosophy of the Gift.Antonio Malo - 2012 - International Philosophical Quarterly 52 (2):149-168.
    Is it possible to think of the gift philosophically? How should we think of the gift in a world that seems to be regulated only with economic rules? These are two of the main questions that are treated in this essay. In order to deal with them, the author analyzes Jacques Derrida’s deconstruction of the gift and Jean-Luc Marion’s notion of givenness. Derrida and Marion are in agreement in refusing intentionality as an essential element of the logic of gift because (...)

    Einander zu erkennen geben. Das Selbst zwischen Erkenntnis und Gabe.Katharina Bauer - 2012 - Freiburg / München: Karl Alber Verlag.
    This book deals with theories of the gift, in particular in contemporary French philosophy. The gift can be regarded as a preliminary stage of complex economical procedures. But it can also be understood as a phenomenon that transgresses the structures of economy. In the act of exchanging gifts, the agents symbolize their interpersonal relationship and mutual recognition. It is pointed out that the praxis of the gift can be considered as an essential form of any socio-cultural interaction, as an essential (...)

    The Politics of Relationality: From the Postmodern to Post-Ontology.D. M. Steiner & K. L. Helminski - 1998 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 24 (4):1-21.
    Recent attempts by American theorists to produce a radical politics, characterized by the effort to translate the insights of Continental philosophy into a political register, remain trapped in that which they purport to transcend: the metaphysics of subjectivity. In their essential determinations, the works of William Connolly, Stephen White, Richard Ashley, etc. remain firmly anchored in a traditional liberal schema. The reason for this is that while these efforts have sought to de-center political identity by exposing its relational character they (...)

    Encountering Unwanted Togetherness: Deconstructing an Ethic of Forgiveness.Grace Hunt - 2006 - Dissertation, University of Alberta
    My thesis offers a philosophical and psychological examination of our ability to forgive strangers post-atrocity. Forgiveness is often considered impossible because atrocities involve unforgivable violations of moral values. Viewed through the lens of deconstruction, however, it is precisely where forgiveness seems impossible that it becomes possible, and more importantly, necessary in order to curb the desire for vengeance. Granting this radical understanding of the value of forgiveness---the ability to forgive the unforgivable---what hinders our ability to forgive? My work focuses on (...)

    Rethinking Justice with Kierkegaard, Levinas, and Derrida.Sarah Elizabeth Roberts - 2000 - Dissertation, Purdue University
    For a long time the call for justice has been heard as a call to settle accounts---to give people what they deserve, to pay what is owed. It is widely accepted that the fair treatment of persons involves a certain economy of desert, a certain tracking of moral credits and debts. As such, justice seems to be wholly distinct from gift-giving. As Derrida has argued, to have a gift, there must be no exchange, no debt incurred or paid. Historically, philosophers (...)

    Being Given. Toward a Phenomenology of Givenness.Jean-Luc Marion - 2002 - Stanford University Press.
    Along with Husserl's Ideas and Heidegger's Being and Time, Being Given is one of the classic works of phenomenology in the twentieth century. Through readings of Kant, Husserl, Heidegger, Derrida, and twentieth-century French phenomenology (e.g., Merleau-Ponty, Levinas, and Henry), it ventures a bold and decisive reappraisal of phenomenology and its possibilities. Its author's most original work to date, the book pushes phenomenology to its limits in an attempt to redefine and recover the phenomenological ideal, which the author argues has never (...)

    Economy of "Invisible Debt" and Ethics of "Radical Hospitality": Toward a Paradigm Change of Hospitality From "Gift" to "Forgiveness".Ilsup Ahn - 2010 - Journal of Religious Ethics 38 (2):243-267.
    The purpose of this paper is to reconstruct a Christian theology of “hospitality” through a critical reading of Jacques Derrida and Friedrich Nietzsche as well as through an in-depth biblical and theological reflection on the ethics of hospitality. Out of this reconstructive investigation, I propose a new Christian ethics of hospitality as a radical kind. As a new paradigm, this radical hospitality is distinguished from other types in that it is no longer conceived on the model of “gift”. The new (...)

    Towards a Phenomenology of Gratitude.Peter R. Costello - 2005 - Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association 79:261-277.
    In this paper, I examine Plato’s Euthyphro phenomenologically, reading the dialogue as manifesting the posture and activity of gratitude as an essential moment of piety. This phenomenon of gratitude appears directly through Euthyphro’s own remarks and indirectly through Socrates’s interaction with Euthyphro. Other recent commentators, notably Mark McPherran, David Parry, James Brouwer, and William Mann, have noted the importance of the Euthyphro as a dialogue that offers a great deal to the discussion of piety through the shape of the relationship (...)

    (Dis)Figures of Death: Taking the Side of Derrida, Taking the Side of Death.Saitya Brata Das - 2010 - Derrida Today 3 (1):1-20.
    If the dominant ethico-philosophical thinking of responsibility in the West is founded upon, or tied to a certain figure of death, it is because this ethical notion of responsibility is also a certain econo-onto-thanatology. Here the notion of the gift to the other is always already inscribed within a certain economic equivalence of value, or an economic determination of temporality as the geometric figure of the circle, or a certain economy of the experiences of abandonment and mourning, through which the (...)

    The Gift and the Return: Deconstructing Mary Shelley's Lodore.Graham Allen - 2011 - Derrida Today 4 (1):44-58.
    This paper begins with Barbara Johnson's examination of the erasure of sexual difference within the Yale school, and in particular her comments upon the work of Mary Shelley. Taking up hints in her statements about the relation between Mary Shelley's work and deconstruction, I suggest a reading of Mary Shelley's penultimate novel, Lodore, in relation to Derrida's Given Time. Lodore, which traditionally appeared a rather conservative novel to Mary Shelley's critics, has a number of parallels in its plot to the (...)
