Derrida and the Political by Richard Beardsworth

Book Description

Jacques Derrida, one of the most influential, controversial and complex thinkers of our time, has come to be at the centre of many political debates. This is the first book to consider the political implications of Derrida's deconstruction. It is a timely response both to Derrida's own recent shift towards thinking about the political, and to the political focus of contemparary Continental philosophy. Richard Beardsworth's study, Derrida and the Political, locates a way of thinking about deconstruction using the tools of political philosophy. Richard Beardsworth has provided students of philosophy, politics and critical theory with a thought-provoking, upper level introduction to Derrida'a work as a political theorist.

Cosmopolitanism and International Relations Theory by Richard Beardsworth Cosmopolitanism and International Relations Theory, Hardback (May 2011)

Globalization has been contested in recent times. Among the critical perspectives is cosmopolitanism. Yet, with the exception of normative theory, international relations as a field has ignored cosmopolitan thinking. This book redresses this gap and develops a dialogue between cosmopolitanism and international relations.

Technics and Time by Richard Beardsworth Technics and Time, Paperback (April 1998)

Aristotle contrasted beings formed by nature with man-made objects, which did not have the source of production within themselves. This book, the first of three volumes, develops an innovative assessment whereby the technical object can be seen as having an essential, distinct temporality and dynamics of its own.

Derrida and the Political by Richard Beardsworth Derrida and the Political, Paperback (October 1996)

This reasessment of the political implications of deconstruction also provides a reading of Derrida's philosophy through political philosophy. It responds to Derrida's own recent shift towards political theory, particularly the evaluation of the "new world order" in his "Spectres of Marx".
