Of grammatology by Jacques Derrida ( Book )
47 editions published between 1974 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,915 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jacques Derrida's revolutionary theories about deconstruction, phenomenology, psychoanalysis, and structuralism, first voiced in the 1960s, forever changed the face of European and American criticism. The ideas in De la grammatologie sparked lively debates in intellectual circles that included students of literature, philosophy, and the humanities, inspiring these students to ask questions of their disciplines that had previously been considered improper. Thirty years later, the immense influence of Derrida's work is still igniting controversy, thanks in part to Gayatri Spivak's translation, which captures the richness and complexity of the original. This corrected edition adds a new index of the critics and philosophers cited in the text and makes one of contemporary criticism's most indispensable works even more accessible and usable
Dissemination by Jacques Derrida ( Book )
73 editions published between 1972 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The notorious French philosopher, literary critic and film star(!) First translated in 1983, Dissemination contains three of Derrida's most central and seminal works: 'Plato's Pharmacy', 'The Double Session' and 'Dissemination'. The essays provide original readings of philosophy and literature, and present a re-evaluation of the logic of meaning and the function of writing in Western discourse. This is a groundbreaking work on the relationship and interplay between language, literature and philosophy
Writing and difference by Jacques Derrida ( Book )
61 editions published between 1978 and 2010 in English and held by 1,699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the 1960s a radical concept emerged from the great French thinker Jacques Derrida. He called the new process 'deconstruction'. Rewriting the ways in which we use language and literature, deconstruction affected every form of intellectual thought, from literary criticism to popular culture. It also criticized the entire tradition of western philosophy, from Plato to Bataille. The academic community was rocked on a scale hitherto unknown, with Writing and Difference attracting both accolades and derision. Whatever the response, deconstruction is here to stay. Read the book that changed the way we think; read Writing and Difference, the classic introduction."--BOOK JACKET
The gift of death by Jacques Derrida ( Book )
21 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Derrida's main concern is with the meaning of moral and ethical responsibility in Western religion and philosophy. He questions the limits of the rational and the responsible that one reaches in granting or accepting death, whether by sacrifice, murder, execution, or suicide. Beginning with a discussion of Patocka's Heretical Essays on the History of Philosophy, Derrida develops Patocka's ideas concerning the sacred and responsibility through comparisons with the works of Heidegger, Levinas, and, finally, Kierkegaard. Derrida's treatment of Kierkegaard makes clear that the two philosophers share some of the same concerns. He then undertakes a careful reading of Kierkegaard's Fear and Trembling, comparing and contrasting his own conception of responsibility with that of Kierkegaard, and extending and deepening his recent accounts of the gift and sacrifice
The secret art of Antonin Artaud by Jacques Derrida ( )
7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Margins of philosophy by Jacques Derrida ( Book )
31 editions published between 1972 and 2009 in English and held by 1,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this densely imbricated volume Derrida pursues his devoted, relentless dismantling of the philosophical tradition, the tradition of Plato, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, Husserl, Heidegger -- each dealt with in one or more of the essays. There are essays too on linguistics (Saussure, Benveniste, Austin) and on the nature of metaphor ("White Mythology"), the latter with important implications for literary theory. Derrida is fully in control of a dazzling stylistic register in this book -- a source of true illumination for those prepared to follow his arduous path. Bass is a superb translator and annotator. His notes on the multilingual allusions and puns are a great service." -- Alexander Gelley -- Description from http://www.barnesandnoble.com (April 11, 2012)
The problem of Genesis in Husserl's philosophy by Jacques Derrida ( )
10 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 1,106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Derrida's first book-length work, The Problem of Genesis in Husserl's Philosophy, was originally written as a dissertation for his diplôme d'études supérieures in 1953 and 1954. Surveying Husserl's major works on phenomenology, Derrida reveals what he sees as an internal tension in Husserl's central notion of genesis, and gives us our first glimpse into the concerns and frustrations that would later lead Derrida to abandon phenomenology and develop his now famous method of deconstruction. For Derrida, the problem of genesis in Husserl's philosophy is that both temporality an
The truth in painting by Jacques Derrida ( Book )
10 editions published between 1987 and 1997 in English and held by 1,051 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The four essays in this volume constitute Derrida's most explicit and sustained reflection on the art work as pictorial artifact, a reflection partly by way of philosophical aesthetics (Kant, Heidegger), partly by way of a commentary on art works and art scholarship (Van Gogh, Adami, Titus-Carmel). The illustrations are excellent, and the translators, who clearly see their work as both a rendering and a transformation, add yet another dimension to this richly layered composition. Indispensable to collections emphasizing art criticism and aesthetics."--A. Gelley, Library J. (pub. desc
The Derrida reader writing performances by Jacques Derrida ( )
8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,049 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jacques Derrida by Geoffrey Bennington ( Book )
31 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 1,045 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Geoffrey Bennington sets out here to write a systematic account of the thought of Jacques Derrida. Responding to Bennington's text at every turn is Derrida's own excerpts from his life and thought that, appearing at the bottom of each page, resist circumscription. Together these texts, as a dialogue and a contest, constitute a remarkably in-depth, critical introduction to one of the leading philosophers of the twentieth century and, at the same time, demonstrate the illusions inherent in such a project. Bennington's account of Derrida, broader in scope than any previously done, leads the reader through the philosopher's familiar yet still widely misunderstood work on language and writing to the less familiar and altogether more mysterious themes of signature, sexual difference, law, and affirmation. Seeking to escape this systematic rendering - in fact, to prove it impossible - Derrida interweaves Bennington's text with surprising and disruptive "periphrases": reflections on his mother's death agony, commentaries on St. Augustine's Confessions, memories of childhood, remarks on Judaism, and references to his collaborator's efforts. This extraordinary book offers, on the one hand, a clear and compelling account of one of the most difficult and important contemporary thinkers and, on the other, one of that thinker's strangest and most unexpected texts. Far from putting an end to the need to discuss Derrida, Bennington's text might have originally intended or pretended, this dual text opens new dimensions in the philosopher's thought and work and extends its challenge
Speech and phenomena: and other essays on Husserl's theory of signs by Jacques Derrida ( Book )
16 editions published between 1973 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An advocate of the rhetorical approach to the study of language criticizes Husserl's theories based on the logical approach
Specters of Marx : the state of the debt, the work of mourning, and the New international by Jacques Derrida ( Book )
32 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and held by 925 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Prodigiously influential, Jacques Derrida gave rise to a comprehensive rethinking of the basic concepts and categories of Western philosophy in the latter part of the twentieth century, with writings central to our understanding of language, meaning, identity, ethics and values. In 1993, a conference was organized around the question, 'Whither Marxism?', and Derrida was invited to open the proceedings. His plenary address, 'Specters of Marx', delivered in two parts, forms the basis of this book. Hotly debated when it was first published, a rapidly changing world and world politics have scarcely dented the relevance of this book." -- Publisher's description
The post card : from Socrates to Freud and beyond by Jacques Derrida ( Book )
12 editions published between 1987 and 2009 in English and held by 921 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'Écriture et la différence by Jacques Derrida ( Book )
56 editions published between 1967 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ce qui s'écrit ici différance marque l'étrange mouvement, l'unité irréductiblement impure d'un différer (détour, délai, délégation, division, inégalité, espacement) dont l'économie excède les ressources déclarées du logos classique.C'est ce mouvement qui donne unité aux essais ici enchaînés. Qu'ils questionnent l'écriture littéraire ou le motif structuraliste (dans les champs de la critique, des <<sciences de l'homme>> ou de la philosophie), que par une lecture configurante ils en appellent à Nietzsche ou à Freud, à Husserl ou à Heidegger, à Artaud, Bataille, Blanchot, Foucault, Jabès, Levinas, ils n'ont qu'un lieu d'insistance : le point d'articulation dérobée entre l'écriture et la différence. A peser sur cette articulation, ils tentent de déplacer les deux termes

11 editions published between 1987 and 2007 in English and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Philosophy in a time of terror : dialogues with Jürgen Habermas and Jacques Derrida by Jürgen Habermas ( Book )
17 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The idea for Philosophy in a Time of Terror was born hours after the terrorist attacks on 9/11 and came to realization just weeks later when Giovanna Borradori sat down with Jurgen Habermas and Jacques Derrida, in separate interviews, in New York City. Habermas and Derrida, guided by Borradori, evaluate the significance of the most destructive terrorist attack ever perpetrated. The book marks an unprecedented encounter between two of the most influential thinkers of our age: here for the first time Habermas and Derrida overcome their historical antagonism and agree to appear side by side." "In her introduction, Borradori contends that philosophy has an invaluable contribution to make to the understanding of terrorism. Just as the traumas produced by colonialism, totalitarianism, and the Holocaust wrote the history of the twentieth century, the history of the twenty-first century is already signed by global terrorism. Each dialogue here, accompanied by a critical essay, recognizes the magnitude of this upcoming challenge. Characteristically, Habermas's dialogue is dense, compact, and elegantly traditional. Derrida's, on the other hand, takes the reader on a long, winding, and unpredictable road. Yet unexpected agreements emerge between them: both have a deep suspicion of the concept of "terrorism" and both see the need for a transition from classical international law, premised on the model of nation-states, to a new cosmopolitan order based on continental alliances." "As Derrida and Habermas disassemble and reassemble what we think we know about terrorism, they break from the familiar social and political rhetoric increasingly polarized between good and evil. In this process, we watch two of the greatest philosophical minds at work."--BOOK JACKET
Spurs : Nietzsche's styles = Eperons : les styles de Nietzsche by Jacques Derrida ( Book )
19 editions published between 1978 and 1996 in 4 languages and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Derrida's controversial "deconstructions" of Nietzsche's meaning
Religion by Jacques Derrida ( Book )
22 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What should we make of the return to the sacred evidenced by the new vitality of churches, sects, and religious beliefs in many parts of the world today? What are the boundaries between the essential traits of religion and those of ethics and justice? Is there a 'truth' to religion? This remarkable volume includes reflections on such questions by three of the most important philosophers of our time -- Jacques Derrida, Gianni Vattimo, and Hans-Georg Gadamer. Together with other distinguished thinkers, they address a wide range of questions about the meaning, status, and future prospects of religion. In his meditation on the "return of religion,' entitled 'Faith and Knowledge: The Two Sources of 'Religion' at the Limits of Mere Reason," Derrida addresses the ways in which this return is intrinsically linked to transformations of which the new media are both the carriers and the symptom. Derrida coins this process one of globalatinization. This neologism signals, among other things, the process of a certain universalization of the Roman word or concept of religion, which tends to become hegemonic, as well as a certain performativity discernible in the new media and in contemporary structures of testimony and confession. Examples of this include, Derrida reminds us, not only the phenomenon of televangelism and televisual stagings of the pope's journeys, and not only the portrayal and self-presentation of Islam, but also the fetishization and becoming virtually absolute of the televisual and the multimedial as such. Using Being and Time as a point of reference, Vattimo suggests that religious experience is both an individual experience and a manifestation of a historical rhythm within which religion regularly appears and disappears. A commentary by Gadamer summarizes and enriches the contributions by Derrida and Vattimo
