Deconstruction by Martin McQuillan
Book DescriptionThis is not a Derrida Reader. It is the first volume to offer a selection of texts from the field of deconstruction in all its radical diversity. The collection examines the fortunes of the term deconstruction, and the ideas associated with it, in the work of the leading commentators on Derrida's texts. It includes previously untranslated, newly translated and uncollected work by Derrida and others. Deconstruction: A Reader begins with examples of pre-Derridean deconstruction, then divides into sections covering philosophy, literature, culture, sexual difference, psychoanalysis, politics, ethics, and memorial texts and interviews by Derrida. It covers a broad range of topics including: AIDS, architecture, art, feminism, ghosts, law, Marxism, postmodernism, race, revolution, Shakespeare, technology, telepathy and theology. This is an indispensable anthology and a guide both to the history of deconstruction and to its current scene. It provides a significant introduction to the challenge of deconstruction. Features * The first anthology devoted to deconstruction * Broad thematic and interdisciplinary coverage * The introductory essay provides a cogent and sustained set of definitions of deconstruction * Includes previously untranslated, newly translated and uncollected work by Derrida and others * Provides a comprehensive introduction to the field
