The Trespass of the Sign offers a clear and thorough account of the relations between deconstruction and theology. Kevin Hart argues that, contrary to popular thought on the topic, deconstruction does not have an antitheological agenda. Rather, deconstruction seeks to question the metaphysics of any theology. Hart pays particular attention to mystical theology as nonmetaphysical theology.

Review quote

"In this remarkable and often brilliant study, Hart presents an original and compelling case for a structural link between deconstruction and mystical theology, especially between Derrida and medieval theologians such as Pseudo-Dionysius Areopagite, Meister Eckhart and Theresa of Avila."
