Focusing on the idea of universal suffrage, John Llewelyn accepts the challenge of Derrida's later thought to renew his focus on the ethical, political, and religious dimensions of what makes us uniquely human. Llewelyn builds this concern on issues of representation, language, meaning, and logic with reflections on the phenomenological figures who informed Derrida's concept of deconstruction. By entering into dialogue with these philosophical traditions, Llewelyn demonstrates the range and depth of his own original thinking. The Rigor of a Certain Inhumanity is a rich and passionate, playful and perceptive work of philosophical analysis.

John Llewelyn, former Reader in Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh, is author of several books, including Appositions of Jacques Derrida and Emmanuel Levinas (IUP, 2002), Seeing Through God (IUP, 2004), and Margins of Religion (IUP, 2009)
