Encountering Derrida explores the points of engagement between Jacques Derrida and other European thinkers who have argued that the era of deconstruction is finally drawing to a close. This book asks whether Derrida has been superseded by a more modern group of thinkers who seek to challenge deconstruction's various conceptions of language, philosophy, metaphysics, ethics, difference and the future.
