By Francis J. Ambrosio

Discusses Derrida as a non secular philosopher, examining Dante’s Commedia and Derrida’s spiritual writings together.

Reading Dante’s Commedia along Jacques Derrida’s later non secular writings, Francis J. Ambrosio explores what those works display approximately faith as a basic dynamic of human lifestyles, approximately freedom and accountability, and in regards to the value of writing itself. Ambrosio argues that either the various telling ameliorations among them and the robust bonds that unite them throughout centuries convey that Dante and Derrida proportion an id as non secular writers that arises from the human reports of religion, wish, and love in line with the divine secret of being human. For either Dante and Derrida, Ambrosio contends, “scriptural faith” finds that the paradoxical rigidity of freedom and absolute accountability needs to result in the secret of forgiveness, a mystery that those proportion and faithfully hold via surrendering to its necessity to die in order continually to start back anew.

“…a important e-book … Ambrosio achieves a section of his aim of reconciling modern ‘styles of piety’ with Dante’s.” — glossy Philology

“Ambrosio’s enterprise of taking Derrida as his Virgil in examining Dante succeeds relatively good … due to Derrida, Ambrosio confirms back what a profound highbrow, even philosophical, problem Christianity nonetheless bargains readers of this nice poet and thinker.” — Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

“Francis Ambrosio has performed a singular and incisive research that sheds very important gentle on Derrida’s research of the aporia of forgiveness by means of taking on the query of Derrida and Dante. the result's an strange mixture of ancient erudition and philosophical perception into some of the most provocative thinkers of our time and an exceptional contribution to continental philosophy of religion.” — John D. Caputo, writer of The weak point of God: A Theology of the Event

“I like a great deal the author’s inventive, audacious, writerly engagement with the texts he translates. there's a lot that's provocative in those readings, and the aptitude and elegance of the writer’s language—in some ways an extension of Derrida’s personal form of writing and interpretation—announce an considerable new talent.” — William Franke, writer of Dante’s Interpretive Journey

Francis J. Ambrosio is affiliate Professor of Philosophy at Georgetown collage and the editor of The query of Christian Philosophy Today.
