Jacques Derrida
‘Of the very many books on Derrida that have already appeared, Marian Hobson’smust surely count as one of the most challenging and the most stimulating. Her owntext interacts with those which she discusses in ways that are truly illuminating of both – not least in the very fact and nature of their interaction. Hobson displays aremarkable sense for the main deeply underlying themes of the philosophical-cum-literary tradition within and through which Derrida is working, themes which continueto work themselves out in his – and indeed her – writing.’Alan Montefiore, Emeritus Fellow of Balliol College, Oxford‘In this exceptionally sophisticated book, Marian Hobson has done what no otherbook to date on Derrida has done: to explore the relation of argument to the mode of writing. By exhibiting the patterns of organizations, filaments of construction,micromovements, circuits of argumentation, which constitute the undercurrent of hiswritings from which, like the tips of icebergs, Derrida’s coinages of individual terms,positions, and determined arguments, including “deconstruction”, emerge to bethematized, Hobson succeeds in demonstrating the rigor of Derrida’s work, moreprecisely, the unheard kind of consistency that characterizes it. Above all, this superbstudy on the question of language in Derrida, and Derrida’s language, by emphasizinghis writerly strategy of sketching links, reinforcing connections between words, themes,arguments, and providing for extensions into other texts, shows Derrida’s work tostage incalculable possibilities of connection from whence future commentaries areallowed to proceed.’Rodolphe Gasché, Eugenio Donato Professor of Comparative Literature,State University of New York at Buffalo
