Derrida and the End of History

3.58  ·  Rating Details  ·  43 Ratings  ·  6 Reviews
In the POSTMODERN ENCOUNTER series, the author places Derrida's rejection of Fukuyama's claim within a wider tradition of endist thought. The Frenchman's critique of endism is highlighted as one of his most valuable contributions to the post-modern cultural debate as well as the most accessible entry to deconstruction.

An easy to read look at Derrida, who is a notoriously difficult theorist. Discusses 'endism', and also reviews The Inhuman which sounds an interesting text, since it predicts that technoscience wishes to preserve life past the end of the universe without humans, which is what Baudrillard discusses in Art and Artifact. Interesting snapshot of various theorists.

A refreshingly simple take for Derrida's works, which have been described charitably as 'purposely obscure'. Don't miss this book if you are trying to wrap your head around Derrida.
