Jacques Derrida is one of the most influential and controversial philosophers of the last fifty years. Derrida on Deconstruction introduces and assesses:

  • Derrida's life and the background to his philosophy
  • the key themes of the critique of metaphysics, language and ethics that characterize his most widely read works
  • the continuing importance of Derrida's work to philosophy.

This is a much-needed introduction for philosophy or humanities students undertaking courses on Derrida.
