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.

    Since time immemorial, due to its metaphysically grounded perspective, western philosophy has not been able to detach itself from the egoistic outlook, and thus, the interaction with the "other” had no role in this philosophy. The world has always been interpreted from the perspective of "self" ignoring the "other". Reviewing this mode of thought from Ancient Greece to Modern Age, one can reveal a kind of repression and forgetfulness of "alterity" and difference which Levinas has well highlighted in his philosophy.

  2. Broken Latin, Secret Europe: Benjamin, Celan, Derrida.Adam Lipszyc - 2021 - Eidos. A Journal for Philosophy of Culture 5 (3):82-91.
    The author begins by analyzing Walter Benjamin’s quarrel with George Kreis and the respective visions of culture advocated by both sides of the debate. Then, he offers a reading of a poem by Paul Celan in which the poet sides with Benjamin, but also makes his position more complex, ultimately offering a paradoxical figure of “the secret openness” or “open/public secrecy” as a remedy against the “mystery” of the Georgians. This idea can be seen as developed in Jacques Derrida’s understanding (...)

The theme of book is central at least in the three texts by Jacques Derrida: “The End of the Book and the Beginning of Writing”, “Outside the Book”, and “The Book to Come”. However, in the process of analysis, the author goes beyond the boundaries of these three works of the philosopher, placing the problem of the (...)

  4. The Religion (Without Religion) of the Living (Without Life): Re-Reading Derrida’s “Faith and Knowledge”.King-Ho Leung - 2021 - Eidos. A Journal for Philosophy of Culture 5 (3):35-49.
    This article offers a reading of Jacques Derrida’s account of “religion” and “life” in his seminal essay “Faith and Knowledge.” Applying Derrida’s aporetic structure of “X without X” to his remarks on religion and life in “Faith and Knowledge,” this article suggests that underlying Derrida’s endeavor to “think religion abstractly” is a radical re-conception not only of religion as “religion without religion” but moreover a re-imagination of life as “life without life” that breaks away from the traditional metaphysical understandings of (...)

    In this essay, I argue that a comparison of Derrida’s “Faith and Knowledge” to the texts and thought of classical rabbinic Judaism can illuminate new conceptual connections among the different elements of Derrida’s thought. Both Derrida and the rabbinic texts can be viewed as affirming a type of “holding back” and “allowing the other to be,” stances which Derrida links to “religiosity” and to “messianicity beyond all messianism.” Moreover, the rabbinic texts appear to avoid the “autoimmune” reaction that Derrida sees (...)

    Toward the beginning of one of her notebooks, Simone Weil interrupts a dense series of reflections on war, force and prestige to write, in parentheses: “(To think on God, to love God, is nothing else than a certain way of thinking on the world.)” In some respects, this one sentence is a crystallization of everything Weil wrote about God. The thought of God is somehow inseparable from a new mode of attention to and valuation of things “here below”; that is, (...)

    The text juxtaposes two different understandings of religion, the first: Hegelian, where it functions as an imaginary representation of the concept, and the second: Derridean, which confronts and radicalizes the idea of the death of God. At the center of their juxtaposition is the process of abstraction and the religious figure of the “desert” which both authors use to illustrate it. Central to Derrida’s thinking of religion, understood as a figure of relentless negativity in search of difference, a “desert” can (...)

  13. The Hidden Law of Selfhood: Reading Heidegger's Ipseity After Derrida's Hospitality.Benjamin Brewer & Ronald Mendoza-de Jesús - 2021 - Oxford Literary Review 43 (2):268-289.
    Despite his wide-ranging and incisive engagement with Heidegger's thought across his career, Derrida seems to have written very little about Heidegger's Ereignis manuscripts, which, according to many commentators, constitute the place where Heidegger's thinking comes closest to Derridean deconstruction. Taking up Derrida's comments in Hospitality 1 on the figure of ‘selfhood’ in Heidegger's Contributions to Philosophy, this essay argues that this dense but important moment of engagement with the Ereignis manuscripts reveals the extent to which Heidegger's thinking of selfhood, in (...)

What interests Derrida is not only the discovery that will indeed soon follow but the temporal structure of presentiment itself. Seeking to give such a vague intimation a more rigorous sense, he theorizes presentiment as a way of ‘precognizing’ something that will never otherwise have (...)

What has largely been overlooked is that Derrida also compared the two: in 1997, in an address given at the third Cerisy conference devoted his work. This apparent repetition will be understood within the broader framework of his reading of Heidegger and, in particular, with what the latter says concerning technology. It will be argued that (...)

However, in order not to succumb to parochialism, the failure of the deontological model should not prompt us to give up on the search for a universalistic drive behind secularism. To this end, (...)

With these shifts we desire (...)

Much maligned, both when he was alive and after his death, Derrida’s relation to philosophy proper has always been an uneasy one, not least because of his relentless questioning of the notion of "philosophy proper" itself. It is this relentless interrogation of the history and presuppositions of Western philosophy that has made him an attractive figure to comparative philosophy. Many of the authors in this (...)

    This paper presents social and political dimensions of forgiveness within Jacques Derrida’s philosophy. Derrida’s philosophy of forgiveness is an example of how philosophy can help us understand and resolve contemporary social and political issues. Derrida believes that traditional concept of forgiveness should be broadened beyond the bounds of the rational and the imaginable. According to Derrida, traditional concept of forgiveness needs rethinking because of the phenomenon of proliferation of scenes of forgiveness after the Second World War that produced globalization of (...)
