Writing and difference by Jacques Derrida( Book )

141 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 2,713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the 1960s a radical concept emerged from the great French thinker Jacques Derrida. He called the new process 'deconstruction'. Rewriting the ways in which we use language and literature, deconstruction affected every form of intellectual thought, from literary criticism to popular culture. It also criticized the entire tradition of western philosophy, from Plato to Bataille. The academic community was rocked on a scale hitherto unknown, with Writing and Difference attracting both accolades and derision. Whatever the response, deconstruction is here to stay. Read the book that changed the way we think; read Writing and Difference, the classic introduction."--Jacket
Dissemination by Jacques Derrida( Book )

69 editions published between 1972 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,851 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The notorious French philosopher, literary critic and film star(!) First translated in 1983, Dissemination contains three of Derrida's most central and seminal works: 'Plato's Pharmacy', 'The Double Session' and 'Dissemination'. The essays provide original readings of philosophy and literature, and present a re-evaluation of the logic of meaning and the function of writing in Western discourse. This is a groundbreaking work on the relationship and interplay between language, literature and philosophy
Margins of philosophy by Jacques Derrida( Book )

75 editions published between 1972 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this densely imbricated volume Derrida pursues his devoted, relentless dismantling of the philosophical tradition, the tradition of Plato, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, Husserl, Heidegger -- each dealt with in one or more of the essays. There are essays too on linguistics (Saussure, Benveniste, Austin) and on the nature of metaphor ("White Mythology"), the latter with important implications for literary theory. Derrida is fully in control of a dazzling stylistic register in this book -- a source of true illumination for those prepared to follow his arduous path. Bass is a superb translator and annotator. His notes on the multilingual allusions and puns are a great service."--Alexander Gelley -- Description from (April 11, 2012)
Speech and phenomena: and other essays on Husserl's theory of signs by Jacques Derrida( Book )

102 editions published between 1967 and 2012 in 8 languages and held by 1,672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The truth in painting by Jacques Derrida( Book )

61 editions published between 1978 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The four essays in this volume constitute Derrida's most explicit and sustained reflection on the art work as pictorial artifact, a reflection partly by way of philosophical aesthetics (Kant, Heidegger), partly by way of a commentary on art works and art scholarship (Van Gogh, Adami, Titus-Carmel). The illustrations are excellent, and the translators, who clearly see their work as both a rendering and a transformation, add yet another dimension to this richly layered composition. Indispensable to collections emphasizing art criticism and aesthetics."--A. Gelley, Library J. (pub. desc
Religion by Jacques Derrida( Book )

47 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in 7 languages and held by 1,028 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What should we make of the return to the sacred evidenced by the new vitality of churches, sects, and religious beliefs in many parts of the world today? What are the boundaries between the essential traits of religion and those of ethics and justice? Is there a 'truth' to religion? This remarkable volume includes reflections on such questions by three of the most important philosophers of our time -- Jacques Derrida, Gianni Vattimo, and Hans-Georg Gadamer. Together with other distinguished thinkers, they address a wide range of questions about the meaning, status, and future prospects of religion. In his meditation on the "return of religion, ' entitled 'Faith and Knowledge: The Two Sources of 'Religion' at the Limits of Mere Reason," Derrida addresses the ways in which this return is intrinsically linked to transformations of which the new media are both the carriers and the symptom. Derrida coins this process one of globalatinization. This neologism signals, among other things, the process of a certain universalization of the Roman word or concept of religion, which tends to become hegemonic, as well as a certain performativity discernible in the new media and in contemporary structures of testimony and confession. Examples of this include, Derrida reminds us, not only the phenomenon of televangelism and televisual stagings of the pope's journeys, and not only the portrayal and self-presentation of Islam, but also the fetishization and becoming virtually absolute of the televisual and the multimedial as such. Using Being and Time as a point of reference, Vattimo suggests that religious experience is both an individual experience and a manifestation of a historical rhythm within which religion regularly appears and disappears. A commentary by Gadamer summarizes and enriches the contributions by Derrida and Vattimo
Limited Inc by Jacques Derrida( Book )

46 editions published between 1977 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 1,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Limited Inc. is a major work in the philosophy of language by the celebrated French thinker Jacques Derrida.

Specters of Marx : the state of the debt, the work of mourning, and the New international by Jacques Derrida( Book )

39 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and held by 927 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Prodigiously influential, Jacques Derrida gave rise to a comprehensive rethinking of the basic concepts and categories of Western philosophy in the latter part of the twentieth century, with writings central to our understanding of language, meaning, identity, ethics and values. In 1993, a conference was organized around the question, 'Whither Marxism?', and Derrida was invited to open the proceedings. His plenary address, 'Specters of Marx', delivered in two parts, forms the basis of this book. Hotly debated when it was first published, a rapidly changing world and world politics have scarcely dented the relevance of this book."--Publisher's description

Adieu to Emmanuel Levinas by Jacques Derrida( Book )

25 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Derrida extends his work on Levinas in previously unexplored directions via a radical rereading of Totality and Infinity and other texts, including the lesser known talmudic readings. He argues that Levinas, especially in Totality and Infinity, bequeaths to us an "immense treatise of hospitality," a meditation on the welcome offered to the other. The conjunction of au ethics of pure prescription with the idea of an infinite and absolute hospitality confronts us with the most pressing political, juridical, and institutional concerns of our time. What, then, is an ethics and what is a politics of hospitality? And what, if it ever is, would be a hospitality surpassing any ethics and any politics we know?"--Jacket

On cosmopolitanism and forgiveness by Jacques Derrida( Book )

35 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the world's most famous philosophers, Jacques Derrida, explores difficult questions in this book. Is it still possible to uphold international hospitality and justice in the face of increasing nationalism and civil strife in so many countries? Drawing on examples of treatment of minority groups in Europe, he probes the thinking that underlies much of the practice, and rhetoric, that informs cosmopolitanism. What have duties and rights to do with hospitality? Should hospitality be grounded in a private or public ethic, or even a religious one?"--Jacket
Monolingualism of the other, or, The prosthesis of origin by Jacques Derrida( Book )

28 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book intertwines theoretical reflection with historical and cultural particularity to enunciate, then analyse, this conundrum in terms of Derrida's own relationship to French. The book operates on three levels. At the first level, a theoretical inquiry investigates the relation between individuals and their 'own' language. At the second, Derrida testifies to aspects of his acculturation as an Algerian Jew with respect to language acquisition, schooling, citizenship, and the dynamics of cultural-political exclusion and inclusion. At the third level, the book is comparative, drawing on statements from a wide range of figures, including Khatibi, Rosenzweig, Scholem, Arendt, and Levinas. The book's argument touches on several issues relevant to the current debates on multiculturalism, including colonialism in schools, the exclusion of languages from serious critical consideration, the investment in an ideal of linguistic purity, and the problematics of translation. -- Publisher description

The problem of Genesis in Husserl's philosophy by Jacques Derrida( Book )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Surveying Husserl's major works on phenomenology, Derrida reveals what he sees as an internal tension in Husserl's central notion of genesis, and gives us our first glimpse into the concerns and frustrations that would later lead Derrida to abandon phenomenology and develop his now famous method of deconstruction
