Derrida and Post- Phenomenology

One way of reading the transformative early work of Jacques Derrida is to understand that work as a complex response to, and reformulation of, the German phenomenological tradition – notably the writings of Edmund Husserl and Martin Heidegger – in light of its political and philosophical shortcomings.
One way of reading the transformative early work of Jacques Derrida is to understand that work as a complex response to, and reformulation of, the German phenomenological tradition – notably the writings of Edmund Husserl and Martin Heidegger – in light of its political and philosophical shortcomings. We expect to read the most influential sections of Derrida’s early texts (Introduction to the Origin of Geometry, Voice and Phenomena, Of Grammatology, Writing and Difference) in conjunction with their primary philosophical antecedents, along with some of the numerous fruitful responses they generated – responses that have spawned whole disciplines in their own right such as Yale School Deconstruction.  For more information please contact legan@princeton.edu

 

Meetings will be held every Monday at 7pm, beginning September 7.  The group Zoom link is: https://princeton.zoom.us/j/97091688416
