Rather than give a review, which I am not inclined or qualified to provide, I think it would be more beneficial for myself and others, should they read this, that I give a sort of collection of useful pedagogic assistances: an introduction to Derrida's.

saya belum paham benar buku ini, tapi penulisnya sudah kepalang pergi...

Jacques Derrida 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 particular, architect ...more
