"This book is an event in Derrida scholarship, as it marks the publication of a long-lost Derrida text simply as "Geschlecht III," which the French philosopher never completed. Part of a series of reflections that represent his most sustained engagement with the writings of Martin Heidegger, this third part was thought by Derrida himself to be the heart of his Geschlecht series. The enigmatic word itself has several meanings in German, and Derrida teases out its implications for topics as diverse and provocative as sexual difference, nationalism, race, and humanity, engaging with Heidegger's controversial oeuvre throughout, as well as a host of other philosophical thinkers and even poetic ones, in the case of Georg Trakl. Thanks to the meticulous editorial work of Geoffrey Bennington, Katie Chenoweth, and Rodrigo Therezo, and vividly rendered by Chenoweth and Therezo's translation, Derrida's most mysterious text, awaited for decades, is finally available for new generations to ponder"-- Provided by publisher
