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.

Fred Moten

Moten’s prophecy bespeaks aesthetic registers in ordinary (Black) life, but he denies that the aesthetic is redemptive.
