Item Description...

"Caputo's book is riveting.... A singular achievement of stylistic brio and impeccable scholarship, it breaks new ground in making a powerful case for treating Derrida as homo religiosis.... There can be no mistaking the importance of Caputo's work." --Edith Wyschogrod

"No one interested in Derrida, in Caputo, or in the larger question of postmodernism and religion can afford to ignore this pathbreaking study. Taking full advantage of the most recent and least discussed writings of Derrida, it offers a careful and comprehensive account of the religious dimension of Derrida's thought." --Merold Westphal

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Vague....  Sep 25, 2004
I have only read the first 50 pages, but the narrative of this book lacks traction, spends more time reiterating its preferred motifs than substantively tackling the issues it raises. The presentation of Derrida's critique of Levinas is positively superficial and resorts, as if returning to the surface for lack of air, to reiterating the 'impossible' as advent, etc. These are wonderful themes but simply chanting them doesn't explicate or reveal the contrasting issues and styles between the greek, jewish and christian faiths and/or styles of thought. Faith stakes a claim, usually a very specific claim, and 'difference' as some kind of 'generality' that undoes the specificity of religious faith for the awaiting of some unknown form of it: this runs the risk of promoting blather, and Derrida may have more to contribute than Caputo is able to demonstrate.
A faithful reading is a risky reading . . .  Jul 24, 1998
In this exposition of Derrida's recent writings, Caputo continues his work of making the trouble-making tools of deconstruction generally available. The clarity of his presentation is matched by his playfulness. Theme by theme, he teases out the revolutionary possibilities of Derrida's "religion," freeing words and phrases from jargon and obscurity. This book offers the gift of the relevance of Derrida for "faith." Caputo's own "Edifying Divertissments" are michieviously beautiful.
