Questions of Phenomenology

Language, Alterity, Temporality, Finitude

Françoise Dastur and Translated by Robert Vallier

A Fordham University Press Publication

Perspectives in Continental Philosophy (FUP)

  • This book will be the first affordable translation of a major French philosopher who teaches and lectures in the United States but has heretofore been published mainly in exceedingly expensive editions.
  • Taking phenomenology to be a matter of central, shared questions, the author spells out where the major phenomenological thinkers stand on each. This should prove a particularly strong pedagogical approach.
  • Dastur was a student of Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe; his students are known for the incisive clarity of their thinking and presentations.
  • The book is a more compact and cheaper introduction to philosophy than the larger introductions currently on the market.
  • Dastur is a major French philosopher who teaches and lectures in the United States, and whose previous book in English, "How Are We to Confront Death," has met with considerable success.
