Editorial Reviews


"One of Derrida’s best."—Radical Philosophy
(Radical Philosophy)

"Derrida's 'deconstructive' critique of phenomenology relates writing to the key concept of 'consciousness of difference.' Following Husserl, he explores the philosophical and traditional roots of geometry and the sciences as a kind of history. . . . [This book] shows original thinking, and [is] accurate but demanding."—Library Journal

Format: Paperback
What this unusual book has to offer include the following.

1. A detailed, occasionally critical, close reading of Husserl's essay.

2. A look at the logic, in its nascent state, that Derrida will continue to develop and deploy throughout his career.

3. A view of Derrida's Husserlian roots, and at his disagreement with certain aspects of these roots.

The book also contains (as it should) an English translation of Husserl's essay.

It should be of interest to those who take an interest in Derrida's work, in Husserl's work (especially his late work), and perhaps to other folks as well, for example those interested in the philosophy or phenomenology of mathematical objects and their history, in the relations between ideality and materiality, or in history or historicity.
