Prof. Brian Schroeder (Rochester Institute of Technology):

“The Singular With the Other: Metaphysics and the Political”

Abstract: Reading Lacoue-Labarthe, Nancy, and Levinas alongside one another opens the possibility for formulating an ethical conception of politics that both preserves the asymmetrical ethical signification of absolute alterity while widening the domain for the reciprocity of sociopolitical intersubjective exchange. For all three it is a matter of thinking beyond the traditional oppositions of self/other and immanence/transcendence to advance the ontological standpoint of being radically exposed, wherein the common ground of singularity is metaphysically revealed as the proper dimension of an ethical approach to political being.
