Barry Stocker

is lecturer in philosophy at Yeditepe University in Istanbul and at University College London. He is author of a new Derrida reader published by Routledge in 2006.


“Ethics in Derrida requires an affirmation of friendship and hospitality on the basis that I always have something outside myself inside myself, so affirmation of self requires affirmation of others. Ethics cannot be absolutist.” Barry Stocker, author of a new reader on Derrida, discusses Derrida’s ethical philosophy and its indebtedness to Kierkegaard, Levinas, and J. L. Austin.
