PHL 338 - Derrida (3 Cr.)


An in-depth study of Jacques Derrida’s early work, which begins with his critique of logocentrism, tracing its trajectory from his work on language and semiotics to the deconstruction of the metaphysics of presence. The class concludes with the readings of his later work, exploring the relevance of deconstruction for contemporary democratic theory, globalization, and education. Prerequisite: two courses in philosophy (one at the 200- level), or permission of the instructor. Spring semester. Offered 2010-11 and alternate years. Grebowicz.
