Derrida and Differance

David Wood and Robert Bernasconi

A collection of six essays by British and American philosophers, Derrida and Différance represents recent appropriations of Derrida's thought at the Warwick Workshops on Continental Philosophy. With an introductory letter by and interview with Derrida, Derrida and Différance focuses on the celebrated term "différance," a neologism devised by Derrida to denote the influence of differentiation in the structuring of all signification.
