Please answer Derrida questions in one paragraph , and answer theapplication in another paragraph. Please use only the assigned reading.You dont have to cite.
For Derrida, from the point of view of traditionalethics “forgiveness can only be considered on the condition that it beasked, in the course of a scene of repentance attesting at once to theconsciousness of the fault, the transformation of the guilty, and the atleast implicit obligation to do everything to avoid the return ofevil.”
Yet, he himself would like to re-theorize a type of forgivenessthat can instead “give place to another peace, without forgetting,without amnesty, fusion, or confusion”.
First, explain Derrrida’s critique of the traditional ethics of forgivenss as a “logic of exchange.”
Second, explain one (1) element or implication that Derrida sees in this re-theorization of forgiveness.
Third, argue either for or against Derrida’s re-theorization of the traditional ethics of forgiveness.
- First, identify acontemporary social or political event that you will apply Derrida to– please choose a different event than the one you applied Fanon orSartre to, although you may reuse an event from earlier in the course ifyou would like.
- Second, hypothesizewhat asking for forgiveness in the context of that event might looklike from the point of view of the “traditional” ethics of forgiveness.
- Third, hypothesize how Derrida’s “re-theorization” of forgiveness might transform your answer to the second part of this question.
- Fourth, arguefor the version of forgiveness you presented in either section two orsection three of this question — would the “traditional” or”re-theorized” instantiation of forgiveness be “better” in this context,and why or why not?
