  3. Hey there, So, I'm having trouble understanding Nevada Union's Levinas affirmative, or Levinas in general. I can't seem to grasp what exactly Levinas argues, and how that functions in the context of the 1AC. What does Levinas say (un)intelligibility is? What is the absolute other/otherness in the context of his work? What is his view on ontology? It's cites are under "1AC - Unintelligibility -- La Costa" http://hspolicy.debatecoaches.org/Nevada+Union/Fenner-HillWeld+Aff Explanations contextualized towards this particular affirmative and surveillance would be appreciated. Thanks ahead of time
  4. So I do LD, and I'm prepping for my camp topic, Immigration ought to be recognized as a human right. I found a few interesting cards for an NC which says how lifting immigration restrictions is an act of un-genuine(?) hospitality (the sovereign state is letting in immigrants, yet they are still preserving their power over them and using them for their own self-interest), and I was thinking I could develop a framework something along the lines of an ethic of hospitality. Does anyone know of any resources I could use to cut cards from (or some cards) to philosophically justifying that ethics demand genuine hospitality to the other? I know that Levinas and Derrida have done extensive writing on ethics and the Other, and I also know that Derrida has done a decent amount of work with the concept of hospitality. However, I skimmed about 50 pages of Derrida's "Adieu to Emmanuel Levinas" and, probably due to the density of Derrida's writing, couldn't really find too much about the link between ethics and hospitality.
