Abstract

symplokeˉ 541 rich dialogue with the work of Butler, Said, and above all, Derrida. Zalloua draws from Butler to emphasize intersubjective forms of vulnerability as a precondition of grieveable life, grounding a formulation of bi-nationalism that holds “a certain faith in the other, a commitment to peaceful co-dwelling” (121). Threaded through this approach is Saidian contrapuntality, one that necessitates thinking the Jew and the Palestinian as indelibly bound one to the other, attuned to “both peoples’ historic-existential entanglement and shared traumas” (124). Such an ethics infuses a reading practice capable of entertaining a “parallax perspective” receptive to the “irreconcilable and intransigent” dimensions of this entanglement (101). Zalloua draws the philosophical lineaments of this practice from across the Derridean oeuvre. He marshals a sharp attunement to the Palestinian question as a persistently “dangerous supplement” that troubles Continental philosophy’s binary of universalism or alterity. Doing so reveals how political Zionism has encoded a fundamentally unethical orientation to the possibility of Palestinian fl ourishing. Such fl ourishing likewise demands subjecting the horizons of Palestinian futurity to an unyielding deconstructive attitude, one that challenges the limited political imagination of two states for two peoples to instead hold open bi-nationalism’s promise of co-existence.
