Views and Interviews: On 'Deconstruction' in America is a critical assessment of the reception of Jacques Derrida's thought in North American academia, and of its transformation into a method for reading texts. In the book, Gasché seeks to assess the legacy of Derrida, arguing that the singularity of Derrida's thought consists in the demand for relentless and uncompromising vigilance for any unquestioned presuppositions, including the use of 'deconstruction' as a name for a movement, or a method. The three interviews with Gasché represent the setting for a systematic reflection and expansion of his critique, begun in The Tain of the Mirror, of 'deconstruction' in America in the name of the primarily philosophical nature of Derridean thought.
