How does Derrida write of and on the other? Apparitions examines exemplary instances of the relation to the otherGthe relation of Moses to God, DerridaGs friendship with Jean-Luc Nancy, DerridaGs relation to a recently departed actress caught on videoGto demonstrate how Derrida forces us to reconceive who or what the other may be.
