SamenvattingIngram argues that ethical questions about sex and race must be understood in light of ontological ones and that language plays a central role in the connection between ontology and ethics. She examines some twentieth-century film and literary texts, including Neil Jordan’s The Crying Game, J. M. Coetzee’s Foe, Toni Morrison’s Paradise and Don DeLillo’s The Body Artist, to argue that material signification is crucial to the experience of living authentically and achieving an ethical relation with the Other.
