Description - Edmund Husserl's "Origin of Geometry" by Jacques Derrida
"One of Derrida's best."--Radical Philosophy. "Derrida's introduction is a detailed and illuminating study of Husserl and a model of excellence in the practice of phenomenology. Essential for the spe-cialist in phenomenology and for everyone interested in science, philosophy, and their interface...Highly recommended."--Choice "Derrida's 'deconstructive' critique of phenomenology relates writing to the key concept of 'consciousness of difference.' Following Husserl, he explores the philosophical and traditional roots of geometry and the sciences as a kind of history...[This book] shows original thinking, and [is] accurate but demanding."-Library Journal Edmund Husserl's Origin of Geometry": An Introduction (1962) is Jacques Derrida's earliest published work. In this commentary-interpretation of the fa-mous appendix to Husserl's The Crisis of European Sciences and Transcendental Phenomenology, Derrida relates writing to such key concepts as differing, consciousness, presence, and historicity.Starting from Husserl's method of historical investigation, Derrida gradually unravels a deconstructive critique of phenomenology itself, which forms the foundation for his later criticism of Western metaphysics as a metaphysics of presence.
