Abstract

This paper, delivered at the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Ethics, at the University of Kyoto in July 2019, starts from Jacques Derrida's considerations on Plato's Phaedo, in Learning to Live Finally, in order to consider the possibility of an existential ethics in light of the Kierkegaardian notion of the self and of Judith Butler's theory of grievability, vulnerability and the relationship to the other.
