Trouble with Strangers: A Study of Ethics
In this major new book, Terry Eagleton, one of the world'sgreatest cultural theorists, writes with wit, eloquence and clarityon the question of ethics. Providing rare insights into tragedy, politics, literature, morality and religion, Eagleton examines keyethical theories through the framework of Jacques Lacan'scategories of the Imaginary, the Symbolic and the Real, measuringthem against the 'richer' ethical resources ofsocialism and the Judaeo-Christian tradition.
