    Critique of Violence is a highly original and lucid investigation of the heated controversy between poststructuralism and critical theory.

Where critiques of universal man and the autonomous human subject had, in recent years, produced a resistance to ethics in many fields of scholarship, today these critiques have generated a crossover among disciplines and led to theories and practices that see and do ethics otherwise.
