Introducing Derrida: A Graphic Guide

Jeff Collins & Bill Mayblin

Introducing Graphic Guides  

Jacques Derrida, who died in 2004, was one of the most famous philosophers of the late 20th century. Yet his work undermined the rules of philosophy, rejected its methods, broke its procedures and contaminated it with ‘literary’ styles of writing.

Derrida’s philosophy was a puzzling array of oblique, deviant and yet rigorous tactics for destabilizing texts, meanings and identities. ‘Deconstruction’, as these strategies have been called, has been reviled and celebrated in equal measure.

Taking the reader on an intellectual adventure likely to disturb some of the most comfortable habits of thought, Introducing Derrida is a witty, concise and intelligent confrontation with this colossus of modern philosophy.
