As has become a pattern in Derrida s recent work the form of this presentation is a self conscious enactment of its content The book consists of two texts on facing pages Invitation by Anne Dufourmantelle appears on the left an invitation that of course originates in a response clarifying and inflecting Derrida s response on the right The interaction between them not only enacts the hospitality under discussion but preserves something of the rhythms of teaching .

The volume also characteristically combines careful readings of canonical texts and philosophical topics with attention to the most salient events in the contemporary world using hospitality as a means of rethinking a range of political and ethical situations Hospitality is viewed as a question of what arrives at the borders in the initial surprise of contact with an other a stranger a foreigner For example Antigone is revisited in light of the question of impossible mourning i Oedipus at Colonus i is read via concerns that also apply to teletechnology the trial of Socrates is brought into conjunction with the televised funeral of Fran ois Mitterrand .
