Elinore Darzi

Elinore Darzi is a PhD student in the Department of French and Italian at Emory University. Her research interests focus primarily on ethics, aesthetics, psychoanalysis and contemporary French thought, particularly that of Jean-François Lyotard, Simone Weil, Emmanuel Levinas and Jacques Derrida.


Jean-François Lyotard

Lyotard’s thought as it appears in Le Différend describes a linguistic state that evades speech, and the ways in which justice could be done to it, or not. Bearing witness to unpronounceable utterances brings about the idea of faith.
