Jacques Derrida’s revolutionary approach to phenomenology, psychoanalysis, structuralism, linguistics, and indeed the entire European tradition of philosophy—called deconstruction—changed the face of criticism. It provoked a questioning of philosophy, literature, and the human sciences that these disciplines would have previously considered improper. Forty years after Of Grammatology first appeared in English, Derrida still ignites controversy, thanks in part to Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak’s careful translation, which attempted to capture the richness and complexity of the original. This fortieth anniversary edition, where a mature Spivak retranslates with greater awareness of Derrida’s legacy, also includes a new afterword by her which supplements her influential original preface. Judith Butler has added an introduction. All references in the work have been updated. One of contemporary criticism’s most indispensable works, Of Grammatology is made even more accessible and usable by this new release.

Mit gleich drei Büchern, die allesamt zu Gründungsdokumenten des postmodernen Denkens geworden sind, hat Jacques Derrida 1967 die philosophische Weltbühne betreten - De la grammatologie, L'écriture et la différance und La voix et le phénomène. Letzteres, das hier in der Neuübersetzung von Hans-Dieter Gondek vorgelegt wird, entwickelt anhand einer gleichermaßen skrupulösen wie erhellenden Lektüre von Edmund Husserls Logischen Untersuchungen Derridas Sicht auf zentrale zeichentheoretische Theoreme der abendländischen Metaphysik und phänomenologischen Sprachtheorie. Die Stimme und das Phänomen ist somit nicht nur eine luzide und kritische Einführung in das Denken der Différance sowie in den Zeichenbegriff Husserls, sondern geradezu das Paradebeispiel einer dekonstruktiven Lektüre.

Binets erster Roman «HHhH» gewann 2010 den Prix Goncourt du Premier Roman, und sein neuer Roman «Die siebte Sprachfunktion» gewann 2015 den Prix Interallié und den Prix du Roman Fnac. Es ist ein Krimi mit Poststrukturalisten. Paris, Frühjahr 1980: Roland Barthes wird von einem bulgarischen Wäschelieferanten überfahren. Barthes kommt von einem Essen mit dem Kandidaten für das Amt des Ministerpräsidenten, François Mitterrand, und trägt ein Manuskript unter dem Arm. Ein Passant, Michel Foucault, wird Zeuge des Unfalls und behauptet, es war Mord. Der Tod des Autors ist für Kommissar Bayard ein Rätsel. Er mischt sich unter die Poststrukturalisten, besucht Vorlesungen von Foucault und hört Vorträge von Julia Kristeva, Philippe Sollers, Jacques Derrida und anderen. Da er nichts versteht, macht er den jungen Sprachwissenschaftler Simon Herzog zu seinem Assistenten. Der Roman ist auch ein Gesellschaftsporträt des Frankreichs der achtziger Jahre. Bayard ermittelt unter den Nach-Achtundsechzigern, die er nicht ausstehen kann, diesen linken Nichtsnutzen, die mit Joints und langen Haaren vor der Uni herumlungern und mit lüsternen Professoren, die von sexueller Freiheit labern und sich unzüchtig benehmen, Frankreichs Kultur gefährden. Das Manuskript, das Barthes bei sich hatte, bleibt spurlos verschwunden. Auch der bulgarische Geheimdienst interessiert sich dafür. Ein bulgarischer Mörder greift Simon Herzog mit einer vergifteten Regenschirmspitze an. Aber im letzten Moment wird Herzog von zwei Japanern gerettet. Sie sind ebenfalls hinter dem Manuskript her. Eine heiße Spur führt zu dem italienischen Semiotiker Umberto Eco. Also bewegt sich der Tross – Kommissar und Assistent, Bulgaren und Japaner, nach Italien. Die Reise geht noch lange weiter, sie führt sogar auf einen amerikanischen Campus, wo Foucault über die Sexualität der Elefanten philosophiert. Das Manuskript, das alle haben wollen, beschreibt die siebte Sprachfunktion (in Anlehnung an Roman Jakobsons Standardwerk der Linguistik über die sechs Sprachfunktionen). Die siebte Funktion, die Binet Roland Barthes erfinden lässt, gibt Politikern die rhetorischen Mittel an die Hand, öffentliche Rededuelle und damit auch die Wahlen zu gewinnen. Könnte Mitterrand damit an die Macht gelangen?

Die dreibandige Schriftenreihe ist ein Kompendium des heutigen Forschungsstandes zu Sprache und Recht. Die wichtigsten Ansatze namhafter Protagonisten auf dem Gebiet der Rechtslinguistik sind hierin gesichtet, gesammelt und ausfuhrlich besprochen. Neben einer Verortung der einzelnen Beitrage im sprach- und rechtswissenschaftlichen Diskurs erfolgt die Darlegung und Erorterung der aktuellen Forschungssituation, welche die Grundprobleme und Tendenzen der Forschung erkennen lasst. Dies erscheint um so notwendiger, als fur die mit dem Gegenstand befassten Sprach-, Rechts- und Sozialwissenschaftler bislang ein umfassendes Nachschlagewerk fehlt, das sie unmittelbar an die Forschungs-probleme heranfuhrt. Die Schriftenreihe bietet Interessierten aller Fachrichtungen erstmals ein Arbeitsinstrument, das sie rasch und zuverlassig uber den gegenwartigen Stand der Kenntnisse zur Sprache des Rechts informiert. Es folgen die Bande Recht verhandeln. Argumentieren, Begrunden und Entscheiden im Diskurs des Rechts (Band 2) und Recht vermitteln. Strukturen, Formen und Medien der Kommunikation im Recht (Band 3).

Understanding Poststructuralism presents a lucid guide to some of the most exciting and controversial ideas in contemporary thought. This is the first introduction to poststructuralism through its major theorists - Derrida, Deleuze, Foucault, Lyotard, Kristeva - and their central texts. Each chapter takes the reader through a key text, providing detailed summaries of the main points of each and a critical and detailed analysis of their central arguments. Ideas are clearly explained in terms of their value to both critical thinking and to contemporary issues. Criticisms of poststructuralism are also assessed. The aim throughout is to illuminate the main methods of poststructuralism - deconstruction, libidinal economics, genealogy and transcendental empiricism - in context. A balanced and up-to-date assessment of poststructuralism, the book presents the ideal introduction to this most revolutionary of philosophies.

"Teletheory is the application of grammatology to television in the context of schooling, not as a way to interpret or criticize television, or rather, video, but to learn from it a new pedagogy. This application or consultation assumes first that the theories of Derrida and the other French poststructuralists (supported by certain art practices) offer the best hope for understanding an era in which the technology of culture is shifting from print to video; and second that this understanding includes not only a pedagogy, but a program for popularization capable of reuniting the advanced research in the humanities disciplines with the conduct of everyday life. Teletheory (the book) offers a rationale and guidelines for a specific genre--mystory--designed to do the work of schooling and popularization in a way that takes into account the new discursive and conceptual ecology interrelating orality, literacy, and videocy."--Preface.

When addressed in its full reactive potential, gender has a tendency to unfix the reassuring certainties of education and academia. Gender pedagogy unfolds as an account of teaching gender learning that is rooted in Derrida's concept of the 'trace', reflecting the unfixing properties of gender and even shaking up academic knowledge production.

Geoffrey Bennington sets out here to write a systematic account of the thought of Jacques Derrida. Responding to Bennington's text at every turn is Derrida's own excerpts from his life and thought that, appearing at the bottom of each page, resist circumscription. Together these texts, as a dialogue and a contest, constitute a remarkably in-depth, critical introduction to one of the leading philosophers of the twentieth century and, at the same time, demonstrate the illusions inherent in such a project. Bennington's account of Derrida, broader in scope than any previously done, leads the reader through the philosopher's familiar yet still widely misunderstood work on language and writing to the less familiar and altogether more mysterious themes of signature, sexual difference, law, and affirmation. Seeking to escape this systematic rendering - in fact, to prove it impossible - Derrida interweaves Bennington's text with surprising and disruptive "periphrases": reflections on his mother's death agony, commentaries on St. Augustine's Confessions, memories of childhood, remarks on Judaism, and references to his collaborator's efforts. This extraordinary book offers, on the one hand, a clear and compelling account of one of the most difficult and important contemporary thinkers and, on the other, one of that thinker's strangest and most unexpected texts. Far from putting an end to the need to discuss Derrida, Bennington's text might have originally intended or pretended, this dual text opens new dimensions in the philosopher's thought and work and extends its challenge.

Despite their conceptual allergy to vegetal life, philosophers have used germination, growth, blossoming, fruition, reproduction, and decay as illustrations of abstract concepts; mentioned plants in passing as the natural backdrops for dialogues, letters, and other compositions; spun elaborate allegories out of flowers, trees, and even grass; and recommended appropriate medicinal, dietary, and aesthetic approaches to select species of plants. In this book, Michael Marder illuminates the vegetal centerpieces and hidden kernels that have powered theoretical discourse for centuries. Choosing twelve botanical specimens that correspond to twelve significant philosophers, he recasts the development of philosophy through the evolution of human and plant relations. A philosophical history for the postmetaphysical age, The Philosopher's Plant reclaims the organic heritage of human thought. With the help of vegetal images, examples, and metaphors, the book clears a path through philosophy's tangled roots and dense undergrowth, opening up the discipline to all readers.
