The God Who Deconstructs Himself

Sovereignty and Subjectivity Between Freud, Bataille, and Derrida

Nick Mansfield

A Fordham University Press Publication

This book outlines jacques derrida's thinking on sovereignty in relation to subjectivity through an investigation of the late work Rogues: Two Essays on Reason. The author detects in Derrida's thinking of sovereignty-a theme that increasingly attracted him toward the end of his life-the outline of Bataille's adaptationof Freud.The results of Mansfield's analysis will be crucial for understanding such key themes in late Derrida as hospitality, justice, otherness, and the gift.
