Phenomenologies of the Stranger

Between Hostility and Hospitality

Edited by Richard Kearney and Kascha Semonovitch

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • Most philosophical attempts to understand the role of the Stranger--human or transcendent--have been limited to standard epistemological problems of other minds, metaphysical substances, body/soul dualism and related issues of consciousness and cognition. This volume endeavors to take the question of hosting the stranger to the deeper level of embodied imagination and the senses (in the Greek sense of aisthesis).
  • A timely book on the question of the stranger and its implication in the ongoing debates on United States immigration policies.
  • A stellar list of contributors including John D. Caputo, Jeffrey Bloechl, and Richard Kearney.
