Always Already Derrida: Berfrois Interviews David Mikics | berfrois

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.
