About This Book
This is a comprehensive investigation into the theme of time in the work of Jacques Derrida and showshow temporality is one of the hallmarks of his thought. Drawing on a wide array of Derrida's texts, Joanna Hodge:
- compares and contrastsDerrida's arguments concerningtime with those Kant, Husserl, Augustine, Heidegger, Levinas, Freud, and Blanchot
- argues that Derrida's radical understanding of time as non-linear or irregular is essential to his aim of blurring the distinction betweenpast and present, biography and literature, philosophical and religious meditation, and the nature of the self
- explores the themes of death, touch and transcendenceto argue that if considered under the theme of temporality there ismorecontinuity to Derrida's thought than previously considered.
