Wild Card of Reading by Rodolphe Gasche
Book DescriptionThe text demonstrates the systematic coherence of Paul de Man's work, insisting that he continues to merit close attention depsite his notoriously difficult and obscure style. Rodolphe Gasche shows that de Man's "reading" centres on a dimension of the texts that is irreducible to any possible meaning, a dimension characterized by the "absolutely singular". Given that de Man and Derrida are both deconstructionalists, Gasche differentiates between the two by emphasizing Derrida's primary interest in "writing" and postulates that the best way to come to terms with de Man's works is to "read" them athwart the writings of Kant, Fichte, Hegel, Heidegger, and Derrida. He shows his respect for "immanent logic" of de Man's thought - which he lays out in detail - while revealing his uneasiness at the oddness of that thought and its consequences.

This text reveals the true philosophical nature of Jacques Derrida's thought, its debt to the tradition it engages, and its misuse by some of his most fervent admirers, dispels the current myth of Derrida's singularity and replaces it with a sense of the philosopher's genuine accomplishment.
