Review quote

"This book gathers the current thinking and perspectives on the work of Jacques Derrida and his treatments on a variety of contemporary issues, including animals, justice and death. Original and rigorous, and yet accessible, these essays also reveal the continued relevance of Derrida's work in helping us think our present intellectual, cultural and political situations in our day-to-day lives." Nicole Anderson, Macquarie University, Sydney "This volume brings together some of the most knowledgeable, sensitive and attentive readers of Derrida to address a range of issues spanning the apparent divide between "early" and "late" Derrida. Bennington, for instance, is quasi-exemplary in his approach to Derrida's dignity. Royle re-opens and re-illuminates the challenging as well as loving relationship between literature and philosophy. Other questions addressed include the pressing matter of "the animal" throughout Derrida's work." Judith Still, University of Nottingham "This volume brings together some of the leading lights in what can now be called the field of Derrida studies. Phillips does a fine job editing and introducing this volume." Choiceshow more
