Jacques Derrida is the most famous philosopher of the late 20th century. Yet Derrida has undermined the rules of philosophy, rejected its methods, broken its procedures and contaminated it with literary styles of writing. Derrida's philosophy is a puzzling array of oblique, deviant and yet rigorous tactics for destabilizing texts, meanings and identities.'Deconstructio', as these strategies have been called, is reviled and celebrated in equal measure.
Derrida: A Graphic Guide introduces and explains his work, taking us on an intellectual adventure that disturbs some of our most comfortable habits of thought.
This series of graphic guides covers every key thinker and topic in philosophy, psychology, science, politics, religion, cultural studies, linguistics and more. Written by experts and illustrated by leading graphic artists, there is no better way to acquaint yourself with the biggest and best ideas humanity has ever come up with.
