Of grammatology. Translation of De la grammatologie. Includes bibliographical references. 1. Languages-Philosophy. I. Title P1OSDS ISBN (hardcover) ISBN (paperback) ISBN SS (corrected edition) A catalog record for this book is available from the British Library. All that aside, OF GRAMMATOLOGY is a great book, written when Derrida was at the height of his powers. Is it his best book? Not in my opinion. I think WRITING AND DIFFERENCE is livelier, funnier, and more accessible. MARGINS OF PHILOSOPHY has more philosophical heft/5(18). Derrida's "Of Grammatology" is perhaps his most famous, as well as his best, work. It is a masterpiece of postmodern philosophy and also, incidentally, Derrida's most readable writing. The book is also a kind of showpiece of the deconstructive method: in it, the reader witnesses Derrida's deconstructions of Saussure, Levi-Strauss and Rousseau /5(22).   1 The End of the Book and the Beginning of Writing 6.

“Grammatology” is a term borrowed from Ignace J. Gelb, a linguist and ancient historian who first used it in his A Study of Writing: The Foundations of Grammatology (). 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. Jacques Derrida's revolutionary theories about deconstruction, phenomenology, psychoanalysis, and structuralism, first voiced in the s, forever changed the face of European and American criticism. The ideas in De la grammatologie sparked lively debates in intellectual circles that included students of literature, philosophy, and the humanities, inspiring these students to ask 4/5(4). 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.

  These substantial questions form the backbone of Chinese Grammatology. It builds on theoretical exploration, historical research, and case studies covering classical philology, the influence of romanization, the latinization movement in modern China, and more. Solid research, broad vision, and sharp observations enliven the whole book. Originally published in In Applied Grammatology, Gregory Ulmer provides an extraordinary introduction to the third, "applied" phase of grammatology, the "science of writing," outlined by Jacques Derrida in Of looks to the later experimental works of Derrida (beginning with Glas and continuing through Truth in Painting and The Post Card). The book is a careful selection of valuable exegeses on parts of Of Grammatology by Derek Atridge, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Geoffrey Bennington, J. Hillis Miller, Forbes Morlock, Sean Gaston, Ann Smock, Michael Syrotinski, Christopher Johnson, Julian Wolfreys, Peggy Kamuf, Paul Davies, Clare Connors, Nicholas Royle, Michael Naas, Jean-Luc.   1 The End of the Book and the Beginning of Writing 6.
