Margins of Philosophy by Jacques Derrida

By Jacques Derrida

''In this densely imbricated quantity Derrida pursues his dedicated, relentless dismantling of the philosophical culture, the culture of Plato, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, Husserl, Heidegger—each handled in a single or extra of the essays. There are essays too on linguistics (Saussure, Benveniste, Austin) and at the nature of metaphor (''White Mythology''), the latter with very important implications for literary thought. Derrida is absolutely accountable for a blinding stylistic sign in during this book—a resource of real illumination for these ready to stick to his laborious direction. Bass is an excellent translator and annotator. His notes at the multilingual allusions and puns are a good service.''—Alexander Gelley, Library magazine
