Jacques Derrida's Aporetic Ethics offers a new approach to the study of Derrida's philosophy. Challenging many scholarly articles and books, Marko Zlomislic argues against the popular conception of Derrida as a philosophical relativist. By evaluating objective evidence and through logical arguments, Zlomislic argues that Derrida has been concerned with ethics since his first published works. Indeed, Derrida's arguments have presented a new understanding of ethics and the concept of decision. Zlomislic provides a substantive in-depth argument for reading Derrida's ethics and, due to the central ethical concerns, Derrida's entire philosophy.Jacques Derrida's Aporetic Ethics is essential reading for anyone with an interest in this essential thinker of the twentieth century.
