    The book reveals how social theory can illuminate many contemporary issues in theology, whilst the examination of theological methods can shed light on problematic issues in sociology. The discussion of issues in Radical Otherness moves from the personal to the political, to the hermeneutic, to the ultimate otherness of metaphysics. This book explores how one measures and analyzes human alterity and difference in an interconnected and ever-globalizing world. This book critically assesses the impact of what has often been dubbed ‘the ontological turn’ within anthropology in order to provide some answers to these questions.

    This chapter focuses on the ethics of alterity in postmodern narrative. It first traces the development of narratives and theory of character and characterization since the 18th century. It also examines the ‘economy of identity’ and the ‘ethics of reading’. Reading a book to become new life style in this yr; every people loves to learn a book.

This important book brings together critical analyses of alterity from across the social sciences and humanities, refining and advancing what alternative economies and polities are, how they are formed, what difficulties and problems they face, and how they might be sustained.

Alterity examines a key notion in phenomenology, viz. that of otherness or alterity, and distinguishes between a broad and a narrow definition of alterity. Broadly understood, “alterity” refers to anything that eludes or transcends a subject’s grasp.

Narrowly understood, it refers exclusively to another agent, subjectivity or mind, or what is experienced as such.
