Between the Blinds
Jacques Derrida is one of the most prolific and influential contemporary French intellectuals. Twenty-two essays and excerpts from Derrida's writings over the last twenty-five years are gathered in this accessible introduction, A Derrida Reader. The book's five sections are carefully introduced by the editor, and each selection of Derrida's work is presented succinctly in context. A general introduction to the volume by Peggy Kamuf provides an original interpretation and overview of Derrida's work and philosophy.
An extraordinary, subtle and informative anthology....The work is presented scrupulously, generously, with consummate art and skill, and will stand as a benchmark for Derrida studies for some time to come.
