Reviewing one of Derrida's books necessarily entails steering a path that avoids two sirens--the Scylla of oversimplifying or reducing, when confronted with a movement of thought which evolves deliberately in order to subvert categories, or the Charybdis of being merely mimetic and repetitive, fossilizing the strategies and gestures that have become identified with a signature that has achieved a peculiar singularity and currency. Such a path perhaps begins with the acknowledgement that Derrida is a philosopher who poses philosophical questions to texts, wherever they come from, and to textuality as such.
