(p.255) 7 Concluding around hospitality
Derrida and Hospitality Theory and Practice

Judith Still

Edinburgh University Press

This book has focused on the writing of Derrida, and also on his dialogues, explicit and implicit, with other thinkers, including Levinas, Kant, Heidegger, Aristotle, Plato, Cicero, Montaigne, Cixous, Irigaray, Camus, Ben Jelloun, Khatibi, and to some extent the thinkers and thinking of the French Revolution, and Enlightenment, which he calls the ‘Age of Rousseau’ in Of Grammatology. Derrida oscillates between the Enlightenment Kant and (a more mystical or absolute) Levinas. The book has focused on cultural difference and hospitality, largely via the relationship between France and Algeria, France and ‘Arabs’. This concluding chapter returns to ethics, violence and sexual difference, but starts with, once again, our relationship to texts.

Keywords:   Derrida, French Revolution, Enlightenment, Kant, Levias, cultural difference, France, Algeria, ethics, violence
