W. J. T. Mitchell, Arnold I. Davidson, The Late Derrida: 1994-2004 (2007)
The scholars included here write of their understandings of Derrida’s newest work and how it impacts their earlier understandings of such classic texts as Of Grammatology. Some have been closely associated with Derrida since the beginning—both in France and in the United States—but none are Derrideans. That is, this volume is a work of critique and a deep and continued engagement with the thought of one of the most significant philosophers of our time. It represents a recognition that Derrida’s work has yet to be addressed—and perhaps can never be addressed—in its totality, and includes, in particular, a marvelous essay written by Hélène Cixous titled “Jacques Derrida as a Proteus Unbound” sure to impress those close with the late philosopher.
