Theorising 'spectrality': ontology and ethics in Derrida and Bhaskar
Alan Norrie pages -


Norrie suggests the ontological commitment required to maintain an ethics of ambivalence and incompleteness. He explores the links between deconstruction and critical realism, particularly by examining Derrida’s attitude to ontology and spectrality in modern life. He also suggests Roy Bhaskar’s work, in which critical realism and its dialects act in places of Derrida’s spectrality, particularly in Bhaskar’s discussions of ontological monovolence.
