Jacques Derrida

French philosopher and literary theorist, the founder of deconstruction.
These years of the Ecole Normale were an ordeal. Nothing was handed to me on the first try.More Jacques Derrida quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The boarding-school experience in Paris was very hard, I didn't put up with it very well. I was sick all the time, or in any case frail, on the edge of a nervous breakdown.More Jacques Derrida quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A text is not a text unless it hides from the first comer, from the first glance, the law of its composition and the rules of its game. A text remains, moreover, forever imperceptible. Its laws and rules are not, however, harbored in the inaccessibility of a secret; it is simply that they can never be booked, in the present, into anything that could rigorously be called a perception.More Jacques Derrida quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Circumcision , that's all I've ever talked about.More Jacques Derrida quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Within the university... you can study without waiting for any efficient or immediate result. You may search, just for the sake of searching, and try for the sake of trying. So there is a possibility of what I would call playing. It's perhaps the only place within society where play is possible to such an extent.More Jacques Derrida quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
