Alterity is a philosophical term meaning "otherness", strictly being in the sense of the other of two (Latin alter). In the phenomenological tradition it is usually understood as the entity in contrast to which an identity is constructed, and it implies the ability to distinguish between self and not-self, and consequently to assume the existence of an alternative viewpoint. The concept was established by Emmanuel Lévinas in a series of essays, collected under the title Alterity and Transcendence (1999[1970]).

The term is also deployed outside of philosophy, notably in anthropology by scholars such as Nicholas Dirks, Johannes Fabian, Michael Taussig and Pauline Turner Strong to refer to the construction of "cultural others". The term has gained further use in seemingly somewhat remote disciplines, e.g. historical musicology where it is effectively employed by John Michael Cooper in a study of Goethe and Mendelssohn.[ Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Here is my example with WFTD.

I have a distinct sense of alterity in today's culture.

A+++ Good to see you, dirtboy. Yes, imagine the shrieks and wails from the left, were it a republican, yet they are so complacent under Obams.

Sounds like a “squish” of “alternate reality” - you know, like Satan offered up in Genesis 3, beginning the religion of Humanism that the left adheres to to this day.

Free enterprise enabled prosperity
But the libs want a Commie alterity
Take the fruits of the makers
To assuage all the takers
It helps if you can lie with sincerity

Alterity

Alterity is a condition suffered by alter natives wherein choice is endless but once the alter native population was reduced decision making became easier

There were sudden little rainstorms that came suddenly out of almost-nowhere all weekend-

The scandal-storm continues-
The bedfellows it has made
Have almost put some basic
Disagreements in the shade

The alterity that exists
Between our rights and spying
Unites some on left and right-
Of that there is no denying

It seems in spite of party line
Not all the ‘rats are sheep-
And Lindsey Graham thinks
Some rights aren’t ours to keep...

I’m almost optimistic that even some democrats have a sense of what liberty really means-maybe some have awakened, but peeling the leeches off their legs is another matter...

As Rush has noted, Obama presents a sense of alterity in which he appears detached from (and even actively against) the very actions which he himself advocates or tolerates within his Administration...

Joke I just saw on Twitter: What does Dan Bylsma have in common with a hockey puck? They’re both solidly behind Marc-Andre Fleury.

I just read in the paper that Bylsma was talking up Fleury and downplaying Vokoun. He’s either trying to increase Fleury’s trade value or completely off his rocker.

And you can’t root for Boston because of the sweep. You are between a rock and a hard place, my friend. If I can ignore Hossa, you can too.

Thank you! I know you are just so proud of her-which university has she chosen?

I was totally shocked yesterday when I saw Rand Paul and Dennis Kucinisch (sp)-whom I normally consider a bit of a loon-actually saying almost the same thing about govt spying...

Au contraire. I can root for Boston to win if they play just as effectively on defense.

Then we don’t look stupid.

Hossa played for the Penguins in 08 when they lost to the Red Wings. That summer he jumped ship to Detroit because he thought he had a better chance to win the Cup there.

So, having become a traitor, it was sweet, sweet justice to have the Pens beat the Wings that next year.

I don’t think so. You posted one about the Caps fans opinions and one about how no decision had been made on Bylsma yet. Nothing about him praising Fleury and calling him our #1 goalie.
