Raises the central issues of the book by using Derrida’s speech at the 1998 Colloque des intellectuels juifs de langue française as a means to lay out Derrida’s relation to Levinas, focusing particularly on the role or irony for each and how it intervenes in their respective relations to philosophy, religion and literature.

Keywords:   Levinas, Derrida, Irony, Jewish Identity, Friendship
