Emmanuel Levinas, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Edmund Husserl, Didier Franck, Martin Heidegger, Francoise Dastur, and Jean-Louis Chrétien are discussed, as are René Descartes, Diderot, Maine de Biran, Félix Ravaisson, Immanuel Kant, Sigmund Freud, and others. The scope of Derridas deliberations makes this book a virtual encyclopedia of the philosophy of touch (and the body).Derrida gives special consideration to the thinking of touch in Christianity and, in discussing Jean-Luc Nancys essay Deconstruction of Christianity, devotes a section of the book to the sense of touch in the Gospels.

Another section concentrates on the flesh, as treated by Merleau-Ponty and others in his wake. Derridas critique of intuitionism, notably in the phenomenological tradition, is one of the guiding threads of the book.On Touching includes a wealth of notes that provide an extremely useful bibliographical resource. Personal and detached all at once, this book, one of the first published in English translation after Jacques Derridas death, serves as a useful and poignant retrospective on the work of the philosopher.

A tribute by Jean-Luc Nancy, written a day after Jacques Derridas death, is an added feature.
