Description - A Derrida Dictionary by Niall Lucy
Derrida's terminology is notoriously difficult for readers to understand, and indeed defining Derridean terms runs counter (in a sense) to the spirit of his intellectual project. However, A Derrida Dictionary can offer points of entry into Derrida's complex and extensive works. From 'aporia' to 'yes', this Dictionary suggests ways into Derrida that show what is at stake in his work in the areas of justice, ethics, democracy, literature, philosophy, religion and how to live. It is a book not just about philosophy, but also about politics and pop music; a book which explains why deconstruction matters, and how Derrida can change the way you think.
