Derrida wrote brilliantly about so many central thinkers of the Western tradition: Plato, Freud, Nietzsche, Heidegger and many more. "Who Was Jacques Derrida?" offers vignettes of these philosophers, giving a sense of their work, along with an account of what Derrida did with them. Often, Derrida gave a partial or misleading account of his philosophical influences, but he always did so in an interesting way. The struggle between him and his great predecessors is dazzling to watch.

Victims say Peace Corps counselors are doing great damage. "Just because someone has a drink doesn't give anyone the right to violate them," said Casey Frazee. "And they need to stop telling survivors that."

Israel Religious Action Center launches ‘Freedom Rider’ campaign
to ensure gender segregation not imposed on ‘kosher’ lines.Tuesday, January 11, 2011Michele ChabinIsrael Correspondent
Jerusalem — Gratified though they are by last week’s High Court decision to ban “mehadrin” buses that separate passengers by gender, Israeli activists fear that the companies that run these lines will not always enforce it.
So they are taking it upon themselves to personally test compliance and are inviting adventurous tourists to join them.
The Israel Religious Action Center (IRAC) is about to launch a year-long Rosa Parks-inspired Freedom Rider program whose foreign and local female volunteers will attempt to sit in the front section of so-called “kosher” buses, which until now have been reserved for men.

"There’s only one way to kill your enemy://You must bite my clit off, pull it inside out,/and use it as an arrowhead."
