Deconstruction is the desire for thought. Derrida says here - there is no deconstruction without democracy and there is no democracy without deconstruction. For all of his attempts to avoid defining, labelling and reducing deconstruction, this book is actually quite readable and in several places it is very clear as well.

An amazing read, made even more vivid in the current Mediterranean context.
The paradoxical gift of Derrida's obscurantist prose just keeps giving.

Intriguing and provocative. as always.
Derrida’s The Politics of Friendship (1994) is as fine an act of deconstructive tightrope traipse as any of his other works; combing through quotations from known philosophers, through tendentious citations severally removed from the original locutions, in unknown light, and situating in them the inscrutable intentionality embedded in language [langue] as such. As ever, his reading of almost trite, or Canonical, texts bringing about a moment of alterity native to them, and so surprisingly impugn...more

My introduction to Derrida (I know I'm late)(God help me...).
Began my love-affair with a ghost; making me accutely aware of all the ghosts haunting my life.

A study of piercing eloquence. Kant's black swan--as a figure of repudiation of essential homophilia of friendship--was especially amusing.
William Durden
This is one of Derrida's more challenging works, I've found, and although I have technically "read" it, I have yet to follow that much of what is happening. It's one I plan to return to sometime.
Not my favorite of Derrida's, but interesting, as ever.

Jacques Derrida (1930-2004) was the founder of “deconstruction,” a way of criticizing not only both literary and philosophical texts but also political institutions. Although Derrida at times expressed regret concerning the fate of the word “deconstruction,” its popularity indicates the wide-ranging influence of his thought, in philosophy, in literary criticism and theory, in art and, in particula...more
