    Derrida’s Tense Bow.Camil Ungureanu - 2013 - The European Legacy 18 (6):727-739.
    This essay explores both the appeal and the difficulties of Derrida?s ?democratic Romanticism.? Derrida?s broader philosophical project seeks to make explicit the paradoxes or aporias that are embedded in practical experience. In unveiling these aporias, Derrida pleads, particularly in his later writings, for a transformation of democracy and religion so as to make them hospitable to difference. However, I will argue that Derrida?s reduction of the great variety of moral-political and religious situations to one aporetic logic runs into conceptual problems (...)

    The Contested Relation Between Democracy and Religion.Camil Ungureanu - 2008 - European Journal of Political Theory 7 (4):405-429.
    In recent years, various European and UN documents have been advancing the idea of `open, transparent and regular' dialogue between religion and democracy. Is this the naïve (or, at worst, hypocritical) rhetoric of the `Good European'? This article will discuss this issue starting from the debate between Habermas and Rawls on the role of religion in the public sphere. My approach presupposes a passage from deliberation to democratic rhetoric, the correlative abandonment of some of the tenets of Habermas's secularism, as (...)

    Bourdieu and Derrida on Gift: Beyond “Double Truth” and Paradox. [REVIEW]Camil Ungureanu - 2013 - Human Studies 36 (3):393-409.
    Bourdieu and Derrida share a focus on the ambiguity of the practice of gift relationships already pointed out by Mauss. From Bourdieu’s perspective, the question of gratuity is epistemically futile, as it veils the objective truth of gift-giving, yet ethically and politically relevant, as it refers to a hypocrisy which can be instrumental to enhancing civic virtue and solidarity. Bourdieu’s “scientific humanism,” however, implausibly reduces this ambiguity to interest maximization, and aims to build a solidaristic democracy by means of the (...)

    El gusto por lo extremado: un análisis crítico de Baudrillard y Derrida sobre el terror y el terrorismo.Camil Ungureanu - 2012 - Isegoría 46:193-213.
    Baudrillard interpreta el «nuevo terrorismo» como un intercambio simbólico de regalo y contra-regalo: la muerte del terrorista es un contra-regalo irrefutable que rompe el círculo coercitivo de las relaciones sociales «impuestas» por el sistema global. A su vez, la concepción de Derrida tiene dos dimensiones, explicativa y normativa: en primer lugar, Derrida considera el 11-S como un síntoma multifacético de una crisis autoinmune que tiene aspectos políticos, religiosos y tecno-capitalistas. En segundo lugar, Derrida arguye que existe un «momento» de terror, (...)

    Sacrifice, Violence and the Limits of Moral Representation in Haneke's Caché.Camil Ungureanu - 2014 - Angelaki 19 (4):51-63.
    :This article revisits Michael Haneke's Caché as a filmic transformation of the traditional bond between sacrificial violence, morality and community building. By drawing mainly on striking correspondences with Jacques Derrida's view of the “mystical” origin of authority and of the limits of moral representation, the article aims to probe into Haneke's strategies of concealment. In so doing, the article proposes a “postsecular” interpretation of the symbolic meaning of the enigmas of the “ghost director” within the film, and of Majid's theatrical (...)

    Michel Houellebecq’s Shifting Representation of Islam: From the Death of God to Counter-Enlightenment.Camil Ungureanu - 2017 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 43 (4-5):514-528.
    Michel Houellebecq has, I argue, changed significantly his portrayal of Islam: in earlier novels, he advances a hostile view of it premised on the secularist belief in the death of God and the inexorable decline of monotheism. Houellebecq sets capitalism against Islam, and advances a vision of a godless ‘religion positive’ better suited for capitalist modernity. In contrast, in his last novel and interventions, Houellebecq makes a post-secular turn largely driven by the radicalization of positivist ideas relying on evolutionary biology. (...)

  13. Cinema and Sacrifice.Costica Bradatan & Camil Constantin Ungureanu (eds.) - 2015 - Routledge.
    Cinema has a long history of engaging with the theme of sacrifice. Given its capacity to stimulate the imagination and resonate across a wide spectrum of human experiences, sacrifice has always attracted filmmakers. It is on screen that the new grand narratives are sketched, the new myths rehearsed, and the old ones recycled. Sacrifice can provide stories of loss and mourning, betrayal and redemption, death and renewal, destruction and re-creation, apocalypses and the birth of new worlds. The contributors to this (...)

    Contemporary Political Philosophy and Religion.Paolo Monti & Camil Ungureanu - 2018 - London and New York: Routledge.
    What is the place of religion in a pluralist democracy? The continuous presence of religion in the public sphere has raised anew normative and practical issues related to the role of religion in a democratic polity, generating spirited political debates in Western and non-Western contexts. Contemporary Political Philosophy and Religion provides an advanced introduction to, and a critical appraisal of, the major schools of political thought with a focus on the relationship between democracy and religion. Key features of this book (...)
