This extraordinary book offers a clear and compelling biography of Jacques Derrida along with one of Derrida’s strangest and most unexpected texts. Geoffrey Bennington’s account of Derrida leads the reader through the philosopher’s familiar yet widely misunderstood work on language and writing to the less familiar themes of signature, sexual difference, law, and affirmation. In an unusual and unprecedented "dialogue," Derrida responds to Bennington’s text by interweaving Bennington’s text with surprising and disruptive "periphrases." Truly original, this dual and dueling text opens new dimensions in Derrida’s thought and work.
