(with Geoffrey Bennington) Jacques Derrida trans. Geoffrey Bennington (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1993).
Geoffrey Bennington sets out here to write a systematic account of the thought of Jacques Derrida. Responding to Bennington’s text at every turn are Derrida’s own excerpts from his life and thought that, appearing at the bottom of each page, resist circumscription. Together these texts, as a dialogue and a contest, constitute a remarkably in-depth, critical introduction to one of the leading philosophers of the twentieth century and, at the same time, demonstrate the illusions inherent in such a project.
