    About “Jacques Derrida Richard Rand John P. Leavey Jr. John P. Leavey

    1. Jacques Derrida Richard Rand John P. Leavey Jr. John P. Leavey says:

      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, architectural theory, and in political theory Indeed, Derrida s fame nearly reached the status of a media star, with hundreds of people filling auditoriums to hear him speak, with films and televisions programs devoted to him, with countless books and articles devoted to his thinking Beside critique, Derridean deconstruction consists in an attempt to re conceive the difference that divides self reflection or self consciousness But even than the re conception of difference, and perhaps importantly, deconstruction works towards preventing the worst violence It attempts to render justice Indeed, deconstruction is relentless in this pursuit since justice is impossible to achieve.

    1. Well, some of the sponge/Ponge riffing is pretty cool, but I can't help feeling that reading Derrida here (as in many other texts) is the equivalent of being forced to watch him masturbate while he's watching porn--a video of himself masturbating. Sorry Good People of Theory Town.

    2. Thus book shatters your concepts of book, text and reading when you open it and begin. For there is no beginning as there is no end. Its margins roll on and off beyond the pages and sew/cut into the fabric of our very lives.I cannot begin commenting on Glas. I would never end. In a sense all I ever write is a reflection, a resonance of the knell, the bell, the ringing that shatters so softly, that is Glas.

    3. While some may consider this book a little abstract, Derrida's glosses of Genet and Hegel are filled with poetry. My advice in reading this book is to enjoy the way that Derrida deconstructs the notion of a book and not to worry too much about making sense of everything.

    4. This seems challenging, but I'd like to attempt it at one point.---4/5/12 - "Glas"sary lol. Will refer to it if I need to.

    5. Takes you some interesting places in your head. And if you allow it, this way of seeing and expressing and re-seeing can spread into other areas of your creative life.

    6. all I read is difficult literature and critical theory - and this was still incomprehensible to me
