Drawing specifically on Continental social idea, together with Wittgenstein, Merleau-Ponty, Levinas, Dumont, Bourdieu and others, and on pre-modern resources reminiscent of the Hebrew bible, the Nuer, the Dinka, and the Azande, the booklet mounts a thorough research of the ontology of self and different in terms of dualism and nondualism. It demonstrates how the self-other dichotomy disguises basic ambiguity or nondualism, therefore obscuring the basically moral, dilemmatic, and sacrificial nature of all social lifestyles. It additionally proposes a cause except dualist, nihilist, and instrumental, one within which good judgment is noticeable as either inimical to and non-stop with price. with out embracing absolutism, the booklet makes ambiguity and paradox the basis of a moral reaction to the pervasive anti-foundationalism of a lot postmodern thought.
