Beyond Deconstruction: From Hermeneutics to Reconstruction
Walter de Gruyter, Aug 31, 2012 - Philosophy - 308 pages
By now Jacques Derrida’s legacy has taken the form of a veritable (post-)deconstructive Babel. Its lasting presence is marked by a crucial oscillation between the echoes of its earlier success and the claims of a radically different sensibility. This volume takes stock of the controversy in three main fields: philosophy, literary studies, and law. For all those who are confronted with the variety of Derrida’s legacy this book serves as an invaluable map and takes a reconstructive approach to move beyond deconstruction.
