Writing and Difference

✍️ Jacques Derrida

In Writing and Difference, you'll examine the ideas of Jacques Derrida, a French philosopher who questions Western philosophy and literature. You'll explore his theories of deconstruction and difference, which hold that meaning is not fixed but is constantly being reconstructed. Derrida argues that writing is not simply a representation of language, but a complex process that creates and changes meaning. You will learn how these ideas challenge our conception of text, authority, and truth, and how they can be applied in literary theory and criticism.
