About the Authors
  • The work of Jacques Derrida has transformed our understanding of a range of disciplines in the humanities through its questioning of some of the basic tenets of western metaphysics. This volume is a trans-disciplinary collection dedicated to his work. The assembled contributions--on law, literature, ethics, gender, politics and psychoanalysis--constitute an investigation of the role of Derrida's work in the humanities, present and future. The volume is distinguished by work on some of his most recent writings, and contains Derrida's own address on "the future of the humanities".

    • A trans-disciplinary address of Derrida's work in one volume, with contributions by leading scholars in their fields
    • Examines the place of Derrida's work in the humanities, present and future
    • Includes Derrida's own contribution on 'the future of the humanities'
