Citing "Whatever" Authority: The Ethics of Quotation in the Work of Giorgio Agamben
Dickinson, Colby
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v46 n4 p406-420 2014
This article seeks to lay out an analysis of Giorgio Agamben's central claims with regard to the formation of a theory of citationality. By juxtaposing Walter Benjamin's theory of citations alongside his more recent, critical engagements with the Western theological tradition, Agamben sets himself the goal of redefining ethics along Levinasian lines in order to arrive at a respect for the face of "whatever" being before us, the true source towards which all citations point.
