Derrida on the Secret, Sacrifice, and the Singularity of Death Acid Horizon

    • Philosophy

What does it mean to tremble before something? In this episode, we cover “Whom to Give to” from Jacques Derrida’s The Gift of Death. Why do we commit to one other instead of all others? Our discussion centers around the notions of the ethical, the universal, and the choices we make. This is a unique work of Derrida’s – one informed by a very focused reading of Kierkegaard’s Fear and Trembling. This conversation cuts through Derrida’s reading of the non-communicative, secret-withholding 'knight of faith'. Derrida’s interpretation of the paradox’s presented by Kierkegaard reveals a very unique position on the nature of commitment to another.
