Fielding Derrida : Philosophy, Literary Criticism, History, and the Work of Deconstruction
Kates extends his earlier contextualizing of Derrida's work in relation to Husserl by arguing that we must begin from a frame different from that provided by Derrida himself. His work must be inserted into already
existing fields, thus "fielding Derrida."
By placing Derrida's texts in the context of broader fields (such as interpretations of modernity and analytic philosophy of language), Kates captures Derrida's stances with a new concreteness and an unprecedented
scope, forging links to vital debates across the humanities today.
