In this concentrated and detailed look at questions surrounding the act of sacrifice, Dennis King Keenan discusses both the role and the meaning of sacrifice in our lives. Building on recent philosophical discussions on the gift and transcendence, Keenan covers new ground with this exploration of the religious, psychological, and ethical issues that sacrifice entails. According to Keenan, sacrifice is paradoxically called to sacrifice itself. But what does this necessary, yet impossible condition mean for living an ethical life? Along the way to an answer, Keenan considers the views of Hegel, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Bataille, Lacan, Levinas, Blanchot, Irigaray, Derrida, Kristeva, Nancy, and Zizek. This thoughtful and provocative work affords a sophisticated philosophical treatment of the question of sacrifice.

If you can get past the god-awful first chapter (which reads like a powerpoint presentation of Keenan's reading list on the anthropology of sacrifice), The Question of Sacrifice is actually a pretty good book. Keenan's project is to uncover a specific logic of sacrifice - which he thematizes under the rubric of 'the sacrifice of sacrifice' - which is operative in an array of 'continental' thinkers that runs the gamut from Kristeva to Zizek.

Keenan largely takes his cue from Jacques Derrida's attempt to think beyond an 'economic' conception of sacrifice (in which one scarifies something for the sake of a calculated return) and chart the ambiguous territory of 'aneconomical sacrifice' where sacrifice 'scarifies itself' for the sake of its own undoing. In chapter after chapter, philosopher after philosopher, Keenan attempts to demonstrate how this logic of redoubled sacrifice plays itself out across the works of the authors he examines.

It's a largely successful attempt, even though I couldn't help but feel that Keenan equivocates between the various senses of sacrifice, all of which he hammers into the one-size-fits-all peg of his reading apparatus. This is not necessarily a bad thing insofar as it allows Keenan to really refine and develop his reading of sacrifice, but it does blur out many of the massive differences between many of the authors he reads. I was left a little bewildered, for example, when Keenan employed Jean Luc-Nancy's reading of Georges Bataille against Julia Kristeva, only to then use Derrida's reading of Bataille against that very same reading of Nancy's. If this seems like alot of Proper Names, it's because it is: Keenan's analysis of sacrifice only really takes place by way of Proper Names (a strange omission is the work of Giorgio Agamben, but then again, perhaps I'm expecting too much...).

Which leaves to me end with a warning: I would not suggest this book to anyone not well versed in the history of continental thought. Keenan moves at a brisk pace, and his prose retains the idiosyncrasies of his masters, although without the payoff of their poetics. So in one chapter, Keenan goes about elucidating the phrase 'sacrificing sacrificing sacrificing' with an entirely straight face. If you're crazy about this sort of stuff to begin with - as I am - The Question of Sacrifice really is a fine read. Otherwise, you might find yourself dry heaving on the journey.

This is a great book. It presents in an exhaustive way the question of sacrifice as it develops in 20th century French thought. The chapters on Bataille and Derrida are especially illuminating. Keenan shows how sacrifice fits into an economical (means-ends) relation and how French thinkers try to reconceive sacrifice (or death) so that it exceeds any sort of use of it that will lead to a payoff. You'll learn a lot if you read this book.
