Future(s) of Philosophy

The Marginal Thinking of Jacques Derrida

Series:

Gary John Percesepe

What does Jacques Derrida mean to philosophy? Is his marginalization in the philosophic community (on grounds of «lack of seriousness») itself a philosophic issue? How shall we understand Derrida's distancing of himself from the «deconstruction industry?» Does Derrida/deconstruction have a philosophical future? Asked against the background of such thinkers as de Saussure, Peirce, Nietzsche, Adorno, Mann, Habermas and Foucault, these are the insistent questions that Future(s) of Philosophy: The Marginal Thinking of Jacques Derrida raises.
Contents: Derrida and Naming - Nietzsche, Derrida, and the question of «the woman» - Derridean musings on the Mann-Adorno-Schoenberg correspondence - A new French Resistance?
