An impossible demand: Deconstructive ethics and Zen Buddhist discourseHowe, David Stephen
ISBN: 0542228343 ISBN13: 9780542228346
Summary:The aim of this thesis is to situate Derridian deconstruction along
side Zen Buddhism in order to accomplish two things. The first is to
illuminate a sense of the ethical in Derridian discourse. The sense
of the ethical found in Derrida marks a radical departure from the
conventional conception of normative ethics found in Kant and others.
Understood in light of Levinas' work on ethics, Derrida's
deconstructive ethics offers a new way of engaging in relations with
the other. Second, by situating the "methodology" of Derridian
deconstruction, now understood as a deconstructive ethics, with Zen
encounter dialogues, Derrida's notion of "democracy to come" is
relocated in a more global context, freeing his "promise of
democracy" from its Eurocentric place in Derrida's work.
