The Deconstruction of Time

David Wood

The Deconstruction of Time is the first book to examine what has become the fundamental, even defining, project in Continental philosophy: double rethinking. Begun by Edmund Husserl, this area of inquiry in part seeks to rethink time in terms of our experience of it; a second aspect, begun by Martin Heidegger, is an attempt to rethink ourselves (and philosophy itself) in terms of the results of that initial rethinking.

About the Author

David Wood (born 1946, Oxford, England) is a professor of philosophy at Vanderbilt University.

"This is an important book, the most important philosophical treatment of Derrida since Gasché's The Tain of the Mirror. . . . Wood's many essays on Derrida, written over the course of several years, have been contemporaneous with . . . Derrida's reception into a wider philosophical readership." --Paul Davies, DePaul University
