Writing and Difference

Writing and Difference, trans. Alan Bass (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1978).

First published in 1967, Writing and Difference, a collection of Jacques Derrida’s essays written between 1959 and 1966, has become a landmark of contemporary French thought. In it we find Derrida at work on his systematic deconstruction of Western metaphysics… Scholars and students from all disciplines will find Writing and Difference an excellent introduction to perhaps the most challenging of contemporary French thinkers — challenging because Derrida questions thought as we know it.
