Memoires for Paul de Man by Jacques Derrida


Memoires for Paul de Man by Jacques Derrida

-- Journal of Aesthetics and Art


Derrida offers significant insights into de Man's understanding of Heidegger, Hoderlin, Hegel, Austin, and Rosseau. A warm, personal, and at times touching account of the de Man/Derrida intellectual friendship and the existential experience of a friend's death, this work shows a very human side to a thinker whose humanity has been questioned by the critics. A welcome addition to any library already containing some writings of Derrida. Choice
