This book explores the relationship between the works of Agamben and Jacques Derrida. Arthur Willemse explains how Agamben's thought renders Derridean terminology inoperative--by suspending the suspense of signification. He argues that this is Agamben's way of undoing a theological structure of thought that philosophy has unknowingly appropriated.

About the Author

Arthur Willemse earned his PhD in philosophy at the University of Sussex.


In The Motif of the Messianic, Arthur Willemse stages a much-needed, original dialogue between Giorgio Agamben and Jacques Derrida on the question of the messianic. Willemse convincingly argues that the basic ingredients of such a dialogue are to be found in Agamben's and Derrida's reflections on law, life and writing. Thus, this important book shows how a reflection on the messianic goes to the heart of the philosophical commitments of present-day continental thought.--Gert-Jan van der Heiden, Radboud University
