"War lays bare death and our relation to it. And in the wars--or more precisely the memories of war--of the twentieth century, images of the deaths of countless faceless or nameless others eclipse the singularity of each victim's death as well as the end of the world as such that each death signifies. Marc Crepon's The Thought of Death and the Memory of War is a call to resist such images in which death is no longer actual death since it happens to anonymous others, and to seek instead a world in which mourning the other whose mortality we always already share points us toward a cosmopolitics. Crepon pursues this path toward a cosmopolitics of mourning through readings of works by Freud, Heidegger, Sartre, Patocka, Levinas, Derrida, and Ric & oelig;ur, and others. The movement among these writers, Crepon shows, marks a way through--and against--twentieth-century interpretation to argue that no war, genocide, or neglect of people is possible without suspending how one relates to the death of another human being. A history of a critical strain in contemporary thought, this book is, as Rodolphe Gasche says in the Preface, "a profound meditation on what constitutes evil and a rigorous and illuminating reflection on death, community, and world." The translation of this work received financial support from the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs."--(4e de couv.)

La peine de mort : séminaire by Jacques Derrida( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "Le présent volume édite la première des deux années du séminaire que Jacques Derrida consacra au sujet de la peine de mort (en 1999-2000 et 2000-2001). Présenté intégralement dans le cadre du programme "Philosophie et épistémologie" à l'Ecole des hautes études en sciences sociales, à Paris, ce séminaire a aussi fait l'objet d'un enseignement aux Etats-Unis. Il précède immédiatement celui consacré à "La bête et le souverain" (2001-2003), déjà publié. Il relève de l'ensemble commencé en 1997-1998 sous le titre "Le parjure et le pardon", qui appartient lui-même à un ensemble plus long, "Questions de responsabilité", initié en 1989 et finalisé en 2003 avec la dernière année d'enseignement de Jacques Derrida. Voici le résumé qu'en donnait Jacques Derrida dans l'Annuaire de l'EHESS 1999-2000 : "La problématique engagée sous ce titre "Le parjure et le pardon" au cours des deux années passées nous a conduits à privilégier cette fois la grande question de la peine de mort. C'était nécessaire au moins dans la mesure où la peine dite capitale met en jeu, dans l'imminence d'une sanction irréversible, avec ce qui paraît tenu pour l'impardonnable, les concepts de souveraineté (de l'Etat ou du chef d'Etat - droit de vie et de mort sur le citoyen), de droit de grâce, etc. Nous avons étudié la peine de mort, de façon au moins préliminaire, aussi bien à partir de grands exemples paradigmatiques (Socrate, Jésus, Hallâj, Jeanne d'Arc) que de textes canoniques, de la Bible à Camus ou à Badinter, en passant par Beccaria, Locke, Kant, Hugo - à qui nous avons consacré de nombreuses séances -, Genet, etc., et surtout de textes juridiques d'après la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Un grand nombre de conventions internationales recommandent en effet la fin des châtiments cruels et des tortures, dont la peine de mort, sans jamais en faire obligation aux Etats dont la souveraineté devait être respectée. Nous nous sommes intéressés aux mouvements abolitionnistes, à leur logique et à leur rhétorique, et surtout aux Etats-Unis dont l'histoire récente, voire très actuelle, a requis de nombreuses analyses - notamment depuis la décision de la Cour suprême qui, en 1972, jugea inconstitutionnelle l'application de la peine de mort ("cruel and unusual punishment"), jusqu'à la reprise amplifiée et spectaculaire des exécutions depuis 1977, etc. Nous avons accordé beaucoup d'attention à l'exception des Etats-Unis. Trois concepts problématiques ont dominé notre questionnement à travers les textes et les exemples étudiés : la souveraineté, l'exception et la cruauté. Autre question conductrice : pourquoi l'abolitionnisme ou la condamnation de la peine de mort, dans son principe même, n'ont-ils (presque) jamais, à ce jour, trouvé une place proprement philosophique dans l'architectonique d'un grand discours philosophique en tant que tel ? Comment interpréter ce fait hautement signifiant ?"

The death penalty by Jacques Derrida( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this newest installment in Chicagos series of Jacques Derridas seminars, the renowned philosopher attempts one of his most ambitious goals: the first truly philosophical argument against the death penalty. While much has been written against the death penalty, Derrida contends that Western philosophy is massively, if not always overtly, complicit with a logic in which a sovereign state has the right to take a life. Haunted by this notion, he turns to the key places where such logic has been established - and to the place it has been most effectively challenged: literature. With his signature genius and patient yet dazzling readings of an impressive breadth of texts, Derrida examines everything from the Bible to Plato to Camus to Jean Genet, with special attention to Kant and postWorld War II juridical texts, to draw the landscape of death penalty discourses. Keeping clearly in view the death rows and execution chambers of the United States, he shows how arguments surrounding cruel and unusual punishment depend on what he calls an 'anesthesial logic, ' which has also driven the development of death penalty technology from the French guillotine to lethal injection. Confronting a demand for philosophical rigor, he pursues provocative analyses of the shortcomings of abolitionist discourse. Above all, he argues that the death penalty and its attendant technologies are products of a desire to put an end to one of the most fundamental qualities of our finite existence: the radical uncertainty of when we will die. Arriving at a critical juncture in history - especially in the United States, one of the last Christian-inspired democracies to resist abolition - The Death Penalty is both a timely response to an important ethical debate and a timeless addition to Derridas esteemed body of work"--Unedited summary from book jacket
