Derrida is quick to point to the presents others bestow: for example Levinas, whose first gift to his host country is to introduce phenomenology (Husserl) and ontology (Heidegger) to France in the 1930s, and whose second gift, causing a second philosophical tremor, is to displace that same axis (Adieu, 10 ff; 22 ff). This pedagogical sharing or nourishing is a critical form of hospitality for Derrida (as he explains in ‘“Eating Well”, or the Calculation of the Subject’, analysed in Chapter 6). Chapter 3 will be devoted to sexual difference and friendship, friendship traditionally being conceived as a relationship between men, just as hospitality has traditionally been conceived as a relationship between men, although supported by women’s labour.

Revolution is to be universalised, and the right to equality and freedom should be universal; deserters from the armies of those who attack France can become citizens after three years. The tone of this appeal is notably different from the one taken by politicians in 1950s France or England, who encouraged immigration for economic reasons – because foreigners’ labour power was needed.
