Jacques Derrida (1930-2004) was unquestionably one of the most celebrated and reviled French thinkers of the last thirty years. Outside France, his influence in comparative literature circles, through deconstruction and other ideas, has been so profound that his personal role as a leader of contemporary French philosophy has been almost overlooked. Perhaps because there is Jacques Derrida (1930-2004) was unquestionably one of the most celebrated and reviled French thinkers of the last thirty years.

Orchard's contribution to this emerging and highly active field concentrates on an aspect of Derrida's work previously dealt with only glancingly, yet central not only to his own work but also to the understanding of recent French thought more generally

Orchard's contribution to this emerging and highly active field concentrates on an aspect of Derrida's work previously dealt with only glancingly, yet central not only to his own work but also to the understanding of recent French thought more generally. This is his work on philosophy in France as an institution, its material, cultural and intellectual determinations and their philosophical relevance

Jacques Derrida (/ˈdɛrɪdə/; French: ; born Jackie Élie Derrida; July 15, 1930 – October 9, 2004) was an Algerian-born French philosopher best known for developing a form of semiotic analysis known as deconstruction, which he discussed i. .

Jacques Derrida (/ˈdɛrɪdə/; French: ; born Jackie Élie Derrida; July 15, 1930 – October 9, 2004) was an Algerian-born French philosopher best known for developing a form of semiotic analysis known as deconstruction, which he discussed in numerous texts, and developed in the context of phenomenology. He is one of the major figures associated with post-structuralism and postmodern philosophy.

This book explores the importance of Jacques Derrida in French philosophy and France's idea of what studying 'philosophy' might mean after the student uprisings of 1968.

Jacques Derrida was one of the most well known twentieth century philosophers. He was also one of the most prolific. Distancing himself from the various philosophical movements and traditions that preceded him on the French intellectual scene (phenomenology, existentialism, and structuralism), he developed a strategy called "deconstruction" in the mid 1960s. Although not purely negative, deconstruction is primarily concerned with something tantamount to a critique of the Western philosophical tradition.

The book combines a comprehensively informed sensitivity for the context with a masterly knowledge of Derrida's thought and the broader . A clear and thorough overview of the main debates in post-war French philosophy.

The book combines a comprehensively informed sensitivity for the context with a masterly knowledge of Derrida's thought and the broader intellectual field in which he worked. Baring's work succeeds not only in enriching enormously our knowledge of Derrida's environment in those formative years of his philosophical development. It is particularly interesting because it highlights the role of many adversaries of Sartre's thought, not usually analysed in books that focus only in figures like Camus ou Merleau-Ponty.

Jacques Derrida (1930-2004) was unquestionably one of the most celebrated and reviled French thinkers of the last thirty years. Outside France, his influence in comparative literature circles, through deconstruction and other ideas, has been so profound that his personal role as a leader of contemporary French philosophy has been almost overlooked. Perhaps because there is no equivalent in English-speaking countries to the timetabling of philosophy in the French education system, writers on Derrida outside France have not fully appreciated the importance of this political and cultural struggle. In this ground-breaking book, Orchard examines a hard-fought debate of great importance not only to Derrida himself, but also to France's idea of what studying 'philosophy' might mean after the student uprisings of 1968.
