9780804722339: Aporias (Meridian: Crossing Aesthetics)

Derrida’s new book bears a special significance because it focuses on an issue that has informed the whole of his work up to the present. One of the aporetic experiences touched upon is that “my death” can never be subject to an experience that would be properly mine,

that I can have

and account

for, yet that there is, at the same time, nothing closer to me and more properly mine

than “my death.”

From the Back Cover:

"My death--is it possible?" That is the question asked, explored, and analyzed in Jacques Derrida's new book. Focusing on an issue that has informed his work for the last 30 years, Derrida stakes out a new frontier, at which the debate with his work must take place from now on.
