Contributions to Phenomenology
vol. 86

Heidegger, Levinas, Derrida

the question of difference

Edited by

Lisa Foran, Rozemund Uljée

This book explores the relation between Heidegger, Levinas and Derrida by means of a dialogue with experts on the work of these mutually influential thinkers. Each essay in this collection focuses on the relation between at least two of these three philosophers focusing on various themes, such as Alterity, Justice, Truth and Language. By contextualising these thinkers and tracing their mutually shared themes, the book establishes the question of difference and its ongoing radicalization as the problem to which phenomenologymust respond.

Heidegger's influence on Derrida and Levinas was quite substantial. Derrida once claimed that his work "would not have been possible without the opening of Heidegger's questions.' Equally, as peers, Derrida and Levinas commented on and critiqued each other's work. By examining the differences between these thinkers on a variety of themes, this book represents a philosophically enriching project and essential reading for understanding the respective projects of each of these philosophers.
