This is the first full-length book in English on the noted French philosopher Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe. Martis introduces the range of Lacoue-Labarthe's thinking, demonstrating the systematic nature of his philosophical project. Focusing in particular on the dynamic of the loss of the subject and its possible post-deconstructive recovery, he places Lacoue-Labarthe's achievements in the context of related philosophers, most importantly Nancy, Derrida, and Blanchot.

Review quote

Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe is the most subtle philosopher of the human subject writing in any language, and John Martis is the clearest and most faithful interpreter of Lacoue-Labarthe on the crucial interaction of representation and the human subject. His book raises discussion of human selfhood to a new level of sophistication.----Kevin Hart, University of Notre Dame
