Editorial Reviews

Review

'The Event of the Thing is an original and important work that demonstrates for the first time how Derrida radically rethinks the tradition of the thing in philosophy, psychoanalysis, and aesthetics.'--Sean Gaston, Department of English, Brunel University

'The Event of the Thing is an original and important work that demonstrates for the first time how Derrida radically rethinks the tradition of the thing in philosophy, psychoanalysis, and aesthetics.'--Sean Gaston, Department of English, Brunel University

'The Event of the Thing is a rigorous, innovative exposition of Derrida's concept of the thing, which permeates his work. Marder's excellent scholarship is of singular importance.'--John Leavey, Department of English, University of Florida

'Recommended!'--Choice Magazine

The Event of the Thing by Michael Marder is probably one of the most comprehensive and integrative readings of Derrida’s oeuvre to date ? Marder’s confident and elegant prose reveals an original style, distinctly different from Derrida’s and yet just as carefully performative and rhythmic.’ (Roy Ben-Shai Telos)

Review

The Event of the Thing is a rigorous, innovative exposition of Derrida’s concept of the thing, which permeates his work. With reference to Derrida’s published and unpublished writings, Michael Marder accomplishes a thoughtful and exciting consideration of what is a major thread in Derrida’s corpus. Marder’s excellent scholarship is of singular importance.’ (John Leavey, Department of English, University of Florida)|‘The Event of the Thing is an original and important work that demonstrates for the first time how Derrida radically rethinks the tradition of the thing in philosophy, psychoanalysis, and aesthetics.&rsquo (Sean Gaston, Department of English, Brunel University)|‘Michael Marder’s book is an example of what philosophy should be in the twenty-first century. Similar to Tugendhat’s analysis of the Heideggerian concept of truth, Rorty’s endorsement of Dewey’s politics, or Vattimo’s interpretation of the Nietzschean Overman, Marder has produced a singular reading of Derrida’s notion of the “thing” and paved the way towards a highly original post-deconstructive realism.’ (Santiago Zabala, ICREA Research Professor, University of Barcelona)

an amazingly insightful avenue into many of Derrida's complex and somewhat side-tracked themes.
