Publisher's Description

Jacques Derrida's prolific output has been the delight (and sometimes the despair) of philosophers and literary theorists for over twenty years. His influence on the way we read theoretical texts continues to be profound. No serious contemporary thinker can fail to come to terms with deconstruction and there have been a number of monographs devoted to his work. Very few, however, have combined a critical edge with a detailed knowledge of his writing. The contributors to this volume were each asked - in the most positive sense - to take just such a critical approach. There are substantive papers by Jean-Luc Nancy, Manfred Frank, John Sallis, Robert Bernasconi, Irene Harvey, Michel Haar, Christopher Norris, Geoff Bennington, John Llewelyn and an introduction by David Wood.

Author Bio

David Wood has published and lectured extensively on Derrida, including Derrida and Difference edited with Robert Bernasconi (1988). He is the author of Philosophy at the Limit (1990), and has edited a series of books in philosophy and literature, including Exceedingly Nietzsche (1988), The Provocation of Levinas (1988), Writing the Future (1990) and Philosophers' Poets (1990). His Apocalyptic Thought: Derrida, Kant and the Limits of Reason will be published by Blackwell Publishers in 1992.

Editorial Reviews

"most readers, on completion of the book, will have a sense of satisfaction in the coherent view of the child's development and thinking. They will appreciate historical changes in the landscape they traversed and be satisfied with the comfort and length of the trip. It should whet their appetites for further explorations in psychology and education, a sure sign of an enjoyable experience" Scott G. Paris, APA Review of Books
