Johan de Jong is assistant professor in Continental Philosophy at Leiden University.
He also holds a research fellowship in the project “Nietzsche – Experiment en Nihilisme” at the Radboud University in Nijmegen.
The Movement of Showing: Indirect Method, Critique and Responsibility in Derrida, Hegel, and Heidegger. Albany: SUNY Press, 2020.
In this book, I explore why Derrida, Hegel, and Heidegger - each in their own way - conceive of their thought as a “movement” rather than as a presentation of results or conclusions. I investigate how such forms of thought can be meaningfully criticized, and I develop an account of Derrida's ethics as an “ethics of complicity.” See the SUNY site for more info.
In the research project “Nietzsche – Experiment en nihilisme” at the Radboud Universiteit in Nijmegen, I am further developing work on what it means to think, and how Nietzsche's unique and diverse methods and styles relate to his conception of the task of philosophy in a nihilistic culture.
