About this title

Synopsis:

A Companion to Derrida is the most comprehensive single volume reference work on the thought of Jacques Derrida. Leading scholars present a summary of his most important accomplishments across a broad range of subjects, and offer new assessments of these achievements.

  • The most comprehensive single volume reference work on the thought of Jacques Derrida, with contributions from highly prominent Derrida scholars
  • Unique focus on three major philosophical themes of metaphysics and epistemology; ethics, religion, and politics; and art and literature
  • Introduces the reader to the positions Derrida took in various areas of philosophy, as well as clarifying how derrideans interpret them in the present
  • Contributions present not only a summary of Derrida’s most important accomplishments in relation to a wide range of disciplines, but also a new assessment of these accomplishments
  • Offers a greater understanding of how Derrida’s work has fared since his death

From the Back Cover:

A Companion to Derrida is the most comprehensive single volume reference work on the thought of Jacques Derrida. Although rooted in Derrida’s contribution to the discipline in which he trained – philosophy – the volume is also of central interest to those whose primary engagement is with Derrida’s impact on literature, psychoanalysis, art, religion, history, legal studies, political science, history, and sociology. The essays, contributed by the most prominent scholars of Derrida, present not only a summary of his most important accomplishments in relation to these disciplines, but also new, cutting-edge assessments of these achievements.

Derridean deconstruction has forced many disciplines into a process of self-examination; the new essays gathered within this collection also raise the question of what comes after deconstruction. They evaluate the novel possibilities of what the deconstructive strategies reveal and examine what they amount to. As a result, A Companion to Derrida both clearly offers new insights into Derrida’s influence across a broad range of subjects, and a greater understanding of how Derrida’s work has fared after Derrida.
