In this book, W. Dow Edgerton reviews narratives from the Bible, the Talmud, Greek mythology, and modern fiction in order to provide a better understanding of the nature and work of interpretation. Disclosed are rich, complex, and compelling possibilities for imagining the work of interpretation and what it means to do that work in a time when so much is needed and so much is possible. The Literary Currents in Biblical Interpretation series explores current trends within the discipline of biblical interpretation by dealing with the literary qualities of the Bible: the play of its language, the coherence of its final form, and the relationships between text and readers. Biblical interpreters are being challenged to take responsibility for the theological, social, and ethical implications of their readings. This series encourages original readings that breach the confines of traditional biblical criticism.

The founding premise of this book is that the nimbus of prestige, which once surrounded the idea of justice, has now been dimmed to such a degree that it is no longer sufficient to secure the possibility of a good conscience for those who undertake, in good faith, to make the world a better place in the spheres of politics and law. The many decent human beings who have noticed and experienced this diminishment of justice’s prestige find themselves in a thoroughly disenchanted existential situation. For them, the attempt to do justice without the illusion of being grounded in something beyond the sheer facticity of their own performances is a distinctly ethical theme, which cries out to be investigated in its own right. Heeding the cry, this book asks and attempts to answer the following fundamental ethical question: is a life in the law – even one spent in the pursuit of justice – worth living, and if so, how can a disenchanted person come to bear the living of it without constantly having to engage in self-deception? If Nietzsche is right that living without illusions is impossible for human beings, then the most important ethical implication of this essentially anthropological fact goes far beyond the question of what illusions we ought to choose. It must also include the question of whether we should succumb to that most seductive and pernicious of all illusions: namely, the belief that exercising great care and responsibility in choosing our illusions – which we might then call our ‘principles of justice’ – excuses us ethically for what we do to others in their name. The culmination of a 10 year legal-philosophical project, this book will appeal to graduate students, scholars and curious non-academic intellectuals interested in continental philosophy, critical legal theory, postmodern theology, the philosophy of human rights and the study of individual ethics in the context of law.

Keine Macht, kein Recht Spektakulärer hätte Seth Hubbard seinen Tod nicht inszenieren können. Als sein Mitarbeiter ihn eines Morgens aufgehängt an einem Baum findet, ist die Bestürzung im beschaulichen Clanton groß. Niemand hätte mit einem Freitod gerechnet. Hubbards Familie sieht das pragmatischer und ist in erster Linie an der Testamentseröffnung interessiert. Was sie nicht weiß: Kurz vor seinem Tod hat Hubbard sein Testament geändert. Alleinige Erbin ist seine schwarze Haushälterin Lettie Lang. Ein erbitterter Erbstreit beginnt . . . Als der schwer kranke Seth Hubbard seinem Leben ein Ende setzt, ahnt niemand, welche Folgen diese Tat haben wird. Hubbard, ein grimmiger Einzelgänger, blieb im Wesentlichen für sich. Versorgt von einer Haushälterin, hatte er kaum mehr Kontakt zu seiner Familie. Hubbards erwachsene Kinder absolvieren die Trauerfeier für ihren Vater denn auch wie einen Pflichtbesuch, um sich danach möglichst schnell der Testamentseröffnung zu widmen. Die Überraschung könnte kaum größer sein, als sich herausstellt, dass Hubbards Vermögen 24 Millionen Dollar umfasst. Den Löwenanteil spricht Hubbard seiner Haushälterin Lettie Lang zu. Seine Familie indes geht leer aus. In Windeseile fechten Hubbards Kinder das Testament an. Mit allen Mitteln versuchen sie Hubbards Unzurechnungsfähigkeit zu beweisen. Die Rechnung scheint aufzugehen. Bis Jack Brigance, der Anwalt an Lettie Langs Seite, Hubbards verschwundenen Bruder Ancil ausfindig macht, der eine Geschichte zu berichten hat, die einem das Blut in den Adern gefrieren lässt. Plötzlich ergibt Seth Hubbards Testament auf tragische Weise Sinn.

This volume in the Political Theory and Contemporary Philosophy series provides a political and philosophical critique of Zionism. While other nationalisms seem to have adapted to twenty-first century realities and shifting notions of state and nation, Zionism has largely remained tethered to a nineteenth century mentality, including the glorification of the state as the only means of expressing the spirit of the people. These essays, contributed by eminent international thinkers including Slavoj Zizek, Luce Irigaray, Judith Butler, Gianni Vattimo, Walter Mignolo, Marc Ellis, and others, deconstruct the political-metaphysical myths that are the framework for the existence of Israel.Collectively, they offer a multifaceted critique of the metaphysical, theological, and onto-political grounds of the Zionist project and the economic, geopolitical, and cultural outcomes of these foundations. A significant contribution to the debates surrounding the state of Israel today, this groundbreaking work will appeal to anyone interested in political theory, philosophy, Jewish thought, and the Middle East conflict.
