Abstract

This title shows how ethical subjectivity is not based on individual morals but contemporary culture. Taking his lead from the philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas, and engaging with a number of ethical thinkers, Dave Boothroyd addresses a number of key contemporary ethical subjects. In doing so, he reveals how responsibility is grounded in the everyday encounters and situations we are all familiar with. It pays particular attention to the philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas. It engages with a number of important theorists of ethics and culture: Nietzsche, Heidegger, Lacan, Foucault, Derrida, Deleuze, Irigaray, Nancy and Badiou. It focuses on ethical concerns from hospitality and obligation, through friendship and love, to torture, death and justice.
