Derrida: A Biography by Benoît Peeters – review
Sign in Create an account. This biography of Jacques Derrida tells the story of a Jewish boy from Derrrida, excluded from school at the age of twelve, who went on to become the most widely translated French philosopher in the world — a vulnerable, tormented man who, throughout his life, continued to see himself as unwelcome in the French university system.
We are plunged into the different worlds in which Derrida lived and worked: We meet the remarkable series of leading writers and philosophers with whom Derrida struck up a friendship: Dergida also witness an equally long series of often brutal polemics fought over crucial issues with thinkers such as Michel Foucault, Jacques Lacan, John R.
We follow a series of courageous political commitments in support of Nelson Peteers, illegal immigrants, and gay marriage. And we watch as a concept — deconstruction — takes wing and exerts an extraordinary influence way beyond the philosophical world, on literary studies, architecture, law, theology, feminism, queer theory, and postcolonial studies.
He is also the first person to make use of the huge personal archive built up by Derrida throughout his life and of his extensive correspondence.
