Summary

Jacques Derrida (1930-2004) was born in Algeria, and held positions at the École Normale Supériere (1964-1983) and the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (1983-2004) in France, and, among other visiting appointments, at Yale University (1975-1986) and the University of California at Irvine (1986-2004) in the United States. Derrida published on an enormous range of thinkers and topics across his career. After an initial focus on Husserl's phenomenology, in the 1960s he engaged work in the human sciences, avant-garde literature, and the history of philosophy to challenge fundamental philosophical conceptions of time, presence, language, identity, and difference. In the 1970s he deepened his engagement with psychoanalysis, literature, and aesthetics, and from the mid-1980s on focused more explicitly on ethical, political, and religious issues. There is an large quantity of Anglophone scholarship on Derrida's work, covering almost all aspects of his work, and from disciplinary perspectives that include but extend far beyond philosophy as it is institutionally defined.

Key works

Derrida's most influential work was published early in his career: Of Grammatology, Voice and Phenomenon, and Writing and Difference, all appearing in 1967, and 1972's Margins of Philosophy  and Dissemination. After this time Derrida continued to publish at a steady rate on an ever-expanding number of thinkers and themes, making it hard to single out texts as particularly prominent. But the most widely read of his later works include "Force of Law", The Gift of Death, and Specters of Marx.

Introductions Gasché's The Tain of the Mirror and Bennington's "Derridabase" provide comprehensive introductions to Derrida's work prior to 1990, and have been very influential in the secondary literature. For an accessible introduction to Derrida's later engagements with ethical, social and political issues, see his book length conversation with Elizabeth Roudinesco, For What Tomorrow.

  1. The omnitemporality of idealities.James Sares - 2024 - Continental Philosophy Review.
    This article develops an interpretation and defense of Husserl’s account of the omnitemporality of idealities. I first examine why Husserl rejects the atemporality and temporal individuation of idealities on phenomenological grounds, specifically that these attributions prove countersensical in how they relate idealities to consciousness. As an alternative to these conceptions, I develop a two-sided interpretation of omnitemporality expressed in modal terms of actuality and possibility, the actual referring to appearances in time and the possible, to reactivation at any time. In (...)

    La lectura de Derrida de Der Streit de Fakultäten, de Kant, que aborda la relación de saber (Universidad) y poder (Estado), tiene dos fases. Primero Derrida apostará por “dos Kant”, que comparten una visión de la facultad de filosofía cuya fortaleza crítica sólo podrá asegurarse a cuenta de sus distanciamiento del poder, para luego leer en el texto kantiano una propuesta de intervención de la filosofía a través de una vía subjetiva, similar a la deconstrucción. Por último, nosotros leeremos la (...)

  3. Democracy, community and the supplemental plus un: Derrida’s reading of Blanchot’s The Unavowable Community.Cillian Ó Fathaigh - 2024 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 50 (3):491-506.
    This article argues that Jacques Derrida’s Politics of Friendship presents an implicit but significant critique of Maurice Blanchot’s The Unavowable Community. In Blanchot’s text, the Other disrupts any sense of fusional or essentialist community. But Derrida criticises Blanchot for neglecting the need to negotiate my responsibility to infinite others. Derrida proposes a logic of the plus un, playing on this double meaning in French, where a need to count singularities (‘plus one’) disrupts the unity of community (‘no longer one’). For (...)

    The notion of survivance is central to Derrida’s later thinking. Much of that thinking, for example in addressing the non–human in The Animal That Therefore I Am and The Beast and the Sovereign, is more precisely a thinking of the human in relation to the animal. Taking inspiration from the recent turn towards biodeconstruction, this essay works through the implications of survivance beyond the human-animal by considering the synergy between biological and textual survivance. And in so doing, this essay outlines (...)

  7. (Re)Situating Geschlecht 3: The Political Stakes of Jacques Derrida’s Reading of Martin Heidegger’s Reading of Georg Trakl.Amir Jaima - 2024 - Derrida Today 17 (1):40-59.
    In his 1985 lecture, Geschlecht III, Derrida sought to ‘situate Geschlecht within Heidegger’s path of thought’. Having identified a political disclosure of sorts in Heidegger’s discussion of the significance of Trakl’s poetic invocation of the polysemic, German word ‘Geschlecht’, Derrida intimates that Heidegger betrays ideas and presumptions concerning the ‘problematic of philosophical nationalism’. Given the contentious political context of Heideggerian thought, some scholars might hope that Derrida’s intervention here would bear upon the divisive scholarly concern referred to as the ‘Heidegger (...)

  8. The Derridean Event: History, Including the Life and Work of Derrida, as Rain.Christopher Morris - 2024 - Derrida Today 17 (1):60-81.
    Commentators agree that Derrida's criteria for an event were stringent: it had to be unique, unpredictable and unanticipatable; it must come as a surprise that defies all conceptualization, comprehension, appropriation. Can any historical occurrence pass such rigorous tests and be considered an event? The question now extends to whether Derrida's writings or life should constitute an event. This article traces Derrida's use of the word ‘event’ or ‘événement’ from ‘Signature Event Context’ and early readings of Nietzsche, Blanchot, and Benjamin through (...)

    Khora, as it figures in Plato’s Timaeus, as read by Jacques Derrida, poses a singular translation problem, not only for having more than one meaning, but also for having less than one. This might be thought of in terms of Derrida’s distinction between ‘polysemy’ and ‘dissemination’, in so far as any concept of translation will ‘re-mark’ a translation or reception of something like khora, the ‘all-receiving’. This means both that khora is untranslatable and that its translation into every language is (...)

  10. Law, Violence and Justice in Derrida’s ‘Force of Law’.Eftichis Pirovolakis - 2024 - Derrida Today 17 (1):97-112.
    In ‘Force of Law’, Derrida’s discussion of the ‘unstable’ distinction between law and justice exemplifies the deconstructive double bind and makes this a very significant text in virtue of its juridical, political and ethical import. The first section focuses on Derrida’s deployment of the polysemous term ‘force’. ‘Force’ refers to the enforceability of the law but also to the performative and interpretative foundational violence at the moment when a new order of legality is instituted. In the second section, I argue (...)

  12. Impossible histories: Derrida, the (re)turn of religion in cultural criticism, and messianic historical theory.Mark Roger Mason - unknown
    This thesis thinks through the messianic motif in the work of Jacques Derrida (1930- 2004) in terms of what it yields for historical theorisation. It is a development and defence of a ‘messianic historical theory’ that attempts to de-stabilize/disturb all historicization(s). I argue that all historical (re)presentation is messianic in structure in the Derridean sense. While faithful to the ‘postmodern’ critique of history (and contesting any claim that such critiques are passé) this theorisation goes beyond the secularist vocabulary that it (...)

    This article explains how Derrida’s notion of an originary or generalised metaphoricity can be understood in terms of the analyses presented in Voice and Phenomenon (1967) in response to Eugen Fink’s question of a ‘transcendental logos’ and of the paradoxical ontological status of phenomenological language. Tracing Fink’s impact on Derrida, as well as the key differences between them, the article shows that underlying Derrida’s reappropriation of the phenomenological concept of ‘life’ is an expansion of indicative relations—which in Husserl typify the (...)

The author contends that the notion of ‘Western metaphysics’ relies on an implicit comparison between the West and its others, shaped not only by philosophical factors but also by historical, sociological and strategic considerations, as exemplified in Aristotle’s exclusion and subjection of metaphor.

    First, this article summarizes the way Jan Patocˇka thinks and updates the classic theme of philosophy as care for the soul. Then goes on to show Jacques Derrida’s significant and unexpected interest in the Czech thinker, and the manner as sharp and respectful as he reads it. Derrida argues that the core of Patocˇka’s approach, under the term “responsibility”, coincides in some sense with that of Emmanuel Levinas; nucleus that has to do, in both authors, with the essence of “religion”.

    This paper adopts a transnational approach to a global issue. I bring together two different traditions—Derridean deconstruction and Buddhism--to address world conflicts as well as intra- and inter-national calls for apology in the global age. Derrida and Buddhism are brought together for good reasons. The “cosmos” underpins both kinds of praxis. The kosmos-polis is the context which prompts Derrida to interrogate forgiveness anew; Buddhism has telling insights to offer on the cosmic effects of karma which could help move us beyond (...)

  20. Rethinking freedom from the perspective of refugees: Lived experiences of (un)freedom in Europe’s border zones.Nasiri Shahin - 2023 - Dissertation, University of Amsterdam
    In mainstream political discourse, refugeehood is increasingly being associated with victimhood, powerlessness, abnormality, and political crises. On the one hand, refugees are, often, viewed as voiceless victims who should be offered protection and assistance on humanitarian grounds under exceptional circumstances. On the other hand, they are, increasingly, being portrayed as enemy-like strangers who pose a threat to the borders, stability of receiving states, and the well-being of their citizens. This prevailing framework fundamentally disregards refugees’ political subjectivity and ignores emancipatory phenomena (...)

Perdonar lo perdonable sería tan solo un modo de excusar o de saldar una deuda.

Esta manera de aproximarse al perdón cuestiona la lógica de las condiciones que determinan cuándo algo es perdonable, pero también toda certeza en cuanto a (...)

Subsumed into this second mode, Derrida casts Leibniz as a progenitor of structuralism and the new sciences and technologies of information in order to expose their logocentric foundations. However, in doing so, he ends up (...)

  41. A Theory of Democratic Social Change and the Role of Disempowerment: Reconceptualization of the American Founding Documents.Angelina Inesia-Forde - 2023 - Asian Journal of Basic Science and Research 5 (3):50-72. Translated by Angelina Inesia-Forde.
    Existing social disparities in the United States are inconsistent with Lincoln’s promise of democracy; therefore, there is a need for a critical conceptualization of the first principles that undergird American democracy and the genesis of democratic social change in America. This study aimed to construct a grounded theory that provides an understanding of the process of American democratic social change. The result was the construction of two frameworks: the demoralization process that triggers social change, and a formal grounded theory that (...)

  42. L’esprit de la phénoménologie. Derrida lecteur de Heidegger.Vincent Blanchet - 2022 - Alter: revue de phénoménologie 30:279-297.
    Jacques Derrida prononça au Collège International de Philosophie, le 14 mars 1987, une conférence consacrée à l’esprit, et plus précisé- ment encore au Geist, dont il s’efforce de montrer qu’il habite de part en part la pensée de Heidegger, qu’il en abrite la méditation philoso- phique à tel point que celle-ci, pour finir, paraît totalement située en ce foyer spirituel. Le titre de l’ouvrage reproduisant le texte de cette conférence – en lui intégrant d’assez longues notes – indique immédiate...

  43. A desconstrução como desconstrução dos humanismos em Derrida.Martha Luiza Macedo Costa Bernardo - 2023 - Revista Filosófica de Coimbra 32 (64):279-302.
    O artigo propõe apresentar o movimento de desconstrução do humanismo em Derrida em A escritura e a diferença. Parto de um trabalho exegético, na trilha das ocorrências do termo “humanismo” na mencionada obra, com o intuito de determinar seus usos diferentes e em que sentidos a desconstrução derridiana deve ser compreendida já, em seus primeiros escritos, como uma desconstrução do humanismo. Para tal, minha análise se dedicou a três textos centrais no referido livro: Violence et métaphysique, essai sur la pensée (...)

  44. A excepção Derrida – O “eleito secreto” dos animais A veia onto-antropo-teo-lógica em questão.Fernanda Bernardo - 2023 - Revista Filosófica de Coimbra 32 (64):303-344.
    «A excepção Derrida – o “eleito secreto” dos animais» pretende sobretudo evidenciar três questões fundamentais de todo interligadas: 1.) Sem a reificar numa filosofia teórico-sistemática, destacar a Desconstrução de Derrida como um “idioma filosófico” – o da différance ou da alteridade absoluta – dotada de pressupostos “teóricos” específicos (khôra, messiânico); 2.) Destacar e esclarecer o significado da “excepção derridiana” no tocante à questão do animal e da animalidade no contexto da sacrificialista ocidentalidade filosófico-cultural; 3.) Destacar a relevância da questão do (...)

  45. La representación y lo monstruoso: Nancy, Derrida y una lectura (in)imaginable.Javier Agüero Águila - 2023 - Enrahonar: Quaderns de Filosofía 71:65-80.
    El presente artículo busca tensionar la idea de representación, fundamentalmente a partir de la obra del filósofo francés Jean-Luc Nancy y del argelino-francés Jacques Derrida. En esta línea, se verá cómo en Nancy la representación no será un tema de presencia, sino más bien de «invisibilidad», del acontecimiento invisible que, no obstante, abre a un espacio metafísico expansivo en el que habitaría el misterio de la representación misma. Una segunda parte del trabajo persigue indagar en la noción de lo monstruoso (...)

  46. «Preferiría pintarme los labios»: notas sobre la resistencia (irrepresentable) en Foucault y Derrida.Verónica González & Tuillang Yuing-Alfaro - 2023 - Enrahonar: Quaderns de Filosofía 71:97-114.
    El siguiente artículo examina la noción de resistencia elaborando un análisis que problematiza el lugar de la representación en política y en democracia. En un primer momento, se plantea el problema a partir de un relato que narra un episodio y un gesto especiales de algunos prisioneros liberados de un campo de concentración. Desde esta cuestión, se revisan las aportaciones de Michel Foucault relativas a la resistencia que dan como resultado, en definitiva, un desacople de las relaciones entre poder y (...)

  49. Schizogonies: Deconstruction of Derrida’s Deconstruction of Reproduction.Francesco Vitale - 2023 - Derrida Today 16 (2):143-157.
    While working on the Italian translation of Life Death, I became aware of some inaccuracies on Derrida’s part that might weaken the effectiveness of his deconstruction of the notion of ‘reproduction’. Not only, such inaccuracies seem to lead Derrida’s interpretation of reproduction toward a conception of ‘life’ that might even hint at an undeconstructed metaphysical background. I have already dealt with such inaccuracies in detail in two articles published in French, here I will recall their outcomes in order to try (...)

  50. Artificial Life, Feeling Machines, and the Text of Deconstruction.Adam R. Rosenthal - 2023 - Derrida Today 16 (2):129-142.
    Recent efforts in soft robotics and Artificial Life are attempting to construct homeostatically functioning machines with ‘feeling’ analogues. Such robots are designed to be ‘vulnerable’ and, thus, depart from traditional approaches to machine design and construction. In this paper, I explore a representative proposal by Antonio Damasio and Kingson Man, and ask how we can understand the deconstruction of ‘life’ in Derrida, Stiegler, Malabou and Wills to relate to such efforts. I argue that the adoption of biological and phenomenological principles (...)
