Jacques Derrida’s revolutionary theories about deconstruction, phenomenology, psychoanalysis, and structuralism, first voiced in the s, forever changed the face of European and American criticism.

The ideas in De la grammatologie sparked lively debates in intellectual circles that included students of literature, philosophy, and the humanities, inspiring these students to ask questions of their disciplines that had previously been considered improper. Thirty years later, the immense influence of Derrida’s work is still igniting controversy, thanks in part to Gayatri Spivak’s translation, which captures the richness and complexity of the original.

This corrected edition adds a new index of the critics and philosophers cited in the text and makes one of contemporary criticism’s most indispensable works even more accessible and usable. The translation is a noble job, and we should be grateful to have this distinguished book in our hands The tool-kit for anyone who wants to empty the ‘presence’ out of any text he has taken a dislike to.

A handy arsenal of deconstructive tools are to be found in its pages, and the technique, once learnt, is as simple, and as destructive, as leaving a bomb in a brown paper bag outside or inside a pub. There is cause for rejoicing in the translation of De la grammatologie Just as Derrida discloses in Rousseau a writer who distrusts writing and longs for the proximity of the self to its voice, so Spivak approaches Derrida through the structure of his diction; no ideas but in the words themselves.

Reading Derrida was the shock of a decentering, the critical shift into a world of the interminable movement of difference, the crisis of any closure.

Detalles del producto Tapa blanda: Corrected ed 8 de enero de Idioma: Derrida’s “Of Eia is perhaps his most famous, as well as his best, work. It is a masterpiece of postmodern philosophy and also, incidentally, Derrida’s most readable writing. The book is also a kind of showpiece of the deconstructive method: In the case of Saussure, for instance, he shows how Saussure sets up an “interior” in which linguistics privileges the oral tradition and in which writing is seen as a kind of exterior that poses a threat to it, the threat, for instance, of the corruption of speech by written traditions.

But Derrida demonstrates how there is a common ancestor to both speech and writing, a type of writing which Derrida terms “arche-writing,” which enables the formation of semiological differences in an originary sense, thus undermining the opposition between them. Linguistics can no longer be said to have grammatoloyg inside that is protected from writing as an outside if both are descendants of a kind of primordial matrix of signification that Derrida calls “differance. Derrida recounts how Levi-Strauss, in his book “Triste-Tropiques,” describes how he introduced “writing” to a tribe known as the Nambikwara, who did not previously have writing.

Levi-Strauss simply distributed amongst them paper and pencils and watched what happened: Derrida, however, cites examples from Levi-Strauss’s own texts showing that violence clearly existed amongst the Nambikwara before writing was introduced to them, thus undermining Levi-Strauss’s metaphysical opposition between a “natural” society of oral purity and an “artificial” one degraded by writing.

The metaphysical tradition, for Derrida, has privileged speech over writing, since speech has immediate access to the logos. Speech is a representation of thought, which grammattology direct access to Being, whereas writing is at third remove from being, since it is a representation of a representation; that is to say, it represents speech, which already represents thought.

The logocentrism of the west, furthermore, has been a phonocentric tradition in which grammatoology is seen as something secondary, a supplement to speech, a supplement that is prosthetic, artificial and deadening.

But for Derrida, the supplement is identical with differance, that is to say, the play of signification in which chains of signifiers constantly defer to other signifiers ad infinitum. There is nothing outside the text, as he famously says, since for Derrida, the text really IS the cosmos, a cosmos in which the absence of a transcendental signified such as God or logos or Being no longer anchors the binding of signifiers to their signifieds.

As a result, all the traditional conceptual metaphysical signifieds are gone, allowing an endless deferral of meaning from signifier to signifier.

Texts are embedded in other texts, endlessly. Meaning is always deferred from signifier to signifier, unleashing the play of the trace which is a kind of supplemental remainder of meaning that cuts across the traditional metaphysical pairs of opposites. The great metaphysical systems have created meaning precisely by restricting it. They have trapped signifiers into grand systems patterned in binary pairs of opposites that ggammatology the traces of multiple meanings by subordinating them to the logos and locking them into place, as it were, within these systems.

For Derrida, the Western metaphysical tradition is a linear tradition that has captured all the signifiers and locked them into place by repressing non-linear forms of writing.

By deconstructing these systems, Derrida is rescuing, as it were, all the traces that have been swallowed up by these systems so that they can now run free in a play of endless reference, meaning and signification that is no longer bound by traditional signifieds.

The fate of meaning in the postmodern age, then, is that it is polysemic, multiple and disseminated in ways that allow meaning to become brammatology through the play of the traces that surround words like halos of meaning that are irreducible to conceptual oppositions.


This manuscript shares a place in history with Hegel’s “Phenomenology”, as one of the most despised manuscripts of philosophy. And they are both despised for similar reasons; their inaccessibility. Hegel assumed his readers were already familiar with his entire system, prior to even approaching his “Phenomenology”. Derrida does the same. They both wrote for their colleagues. In Derrida’s case; he assumes the reader has passed through the following presuppositions: They have an understanding of Hegel through the eyes of Heidegger.

They already have an understanding of his mentor Paul Ricoeur and even Grammayology Luc Nancy, who also offered him the “singular-plural”. He assumes too much. Therefore, I strongly recommend reading a prefatory commentary on Derrida first; but then, of course, attacking this original work.

My current recommendation is to offer Dr. Christina Howells’ book on Derrida. It is extremely well done. Having said his; I can tell you that the reviews of this manuscript of “Grammatology” will probably reflect “5-stars” or “1-star”; with very few in the middle. This is the writer who gathers the love-hate relationships unto himself.

He does gather in 5-star ratings because, as Ricoeur once said, “This is a seminal work” of great importance. No individual can go around Hegel today in the field of philosophy even if only to disagree ; and the same will hold true for “Grammatology” in a few years.

This a review and not a commentary, but I will give you the “10” moments of Derrida’s deconstruction process. But please consider Howells’ book. The “10” moments are: Dokounta threshold of “refinery”. Hinge pivot-point of true subjectivity. Composition threshold and return to mystic body-state. It took “9 “years for this manuscript to make to America. It will be a few years before Derrida becomes essential reading for American philosophy; but it will happen.

I am one of those who “loved” the work done by Derrida, and I give it 5-stars, with a recommendation to enjoin the reading with the help of Howells. Good luck on your research.

One of the famous three books of that put Derrida on the map. Please ignore her introduction until you’ve spent some time with the text: Derrida’s version of philosophy is performative, not descriptive, and as such cannot easily be encapsulated, if indeed it can be summarized at all.

The book is of course great. The new translation, not so much.
