The Seminars of Jacques Derrida

Geoffrey Bennington and Peggy Kamuf, Series Editors
Jacques Derrida, one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century, left behind at his death in 2004 twenty volumes of unpublished lectures that he delivered beginning in 1960 in France and, later, the United States. While some of Derrida's lectures correspond to and complement his published work, the vast majority is original material that constitutes a substantial and indispensable portion of his oeuvre. Derrida's seminars, which explored extensive tracts of western philosophy and literature, attracted a broad following for over forty years, and the posthumous publication of his lectures in translation will grant an English-speaking audience unprecedented access to the revered scholar's teaching voice.
