About the Author:

Edith Wyschogrod is J. Newton Rayzor Professor of Philosophy and Religious Thought emerita at Rice University. The most recent of her books are An Ethics of Remembering: History, Heterology, and the Nameless Others; Saints and Postmodernism: Revisioning Moral Philosophy; and a second edition of Emmanuel Levinas: The Problem of Ethical Metaphysics (Fordham).

Jean-Joseph Goux is Laurence Favrot Professor of French Studies at Rice University (emeritus). He was associated with the Tel Quel group in the late 1960s.
Between philosophy, economy, psychoanalysis, and aesthetics, his work engages the field of “symbolic economy.” He taught at the University of California (San
Diego, Berkeley) and at Brown University. He was program director at the College International de Philosophie in Paris and associate director at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales. His books include Symbolic Economies (Cornell University Press, 1990), The Coiners of Languages (University of Oklahoma Press, 1994), and Oedipus Philosopher (Stanford University Press, 1993). He also has published Frivolite de la valeur (Blusson, 2000) and most recently Accrochages,
confl its du visuel (Des femmes, 2007); L’art et l’argent (Blusson, 2011); and Le tresor
perdu de la fi nance folle (Blusson, 2013).



Eric Boynton is Professor and Chair of Philosophy and Religious Studies at Allegheny College, where he also serves as the Director of Interdisciplinary Studies. With Edith Wyschogrod and Jean-Joseph Goux he edited The Enigma of Gift and Sacrifice (Fordham), and with Martin Kavka Saintly Influence (Fordham). In addition to writings in these volumes, he has published articles and chapters on continental philosophy, the problem of evil and suffering, and aesthetics and film with venues in the philosophy of religion and contemporary theory.
