    1. This was too hard to understand, therefore it didn t make any sense therefore it is stupid therefore anyone who liked it is stupid therefore I am smarter than anyone who liked it therefore there is a huge conspiracy where well read educated people are not really either of those things because they responded to this differently therefore definitions of well read and educated are totally undermined by therefore being revealed as artificially constructed determinants in the grammar of elite preroga [...]

    2. This book gets five stars from mebut this review which I initially made as a comment to another review , is in response to the Derrida Searle debate, and the Searle quote that is so often cited as the wooden stake to Derrida s deconstructive heart Here we goSearle willfully misreads Derrida, or at the very least, doesn t take the time to understand his theory properly The supposed limitation of deconstruction, the idea that deconstruction deconstructs itself, is a limitation that Derrida was cer [...]

    3. I need a bucket This is the a hole through which there has flowed a river of anemic pretentious francophilic crap for three decades Derrida seems to have little of Foucault s erudition and a strange compulsion to make the same empty gestures over and over again Everything Schopenhauer said about Hegel applies here that the guy is a charlatan selling his own image in the guise of a new philosophical language Maybe other books by Derrida are wonderful I ve only read Of Spirit, Limited, Inc, and pa [...]

    4. well, i read the first chapter, but i have almost no idea what it said even though i tried very hard to know what it was saying then i went back to read the translator s preface thanks for nothing, spivak i ll keep trying.

    5. Yes Derrida tends to be a bit verbose and redundant However once you get past the syntax you will find a philosophy that is deep and inherent in our postmodern society Sometimes I say to myself while reading this, why can you just use plain clarification like Ferdinand De Saussure Derrida tends to explain the explanations with confusion.I will paraphrase the context here in brevity to help clarify Foot notes, cliff notes, other books and lectures served me well with the grappling on the theme D [...]

    6. Derrida s Of Grammatology aims to think the structural conditions of possibility which organize the coherence of metaphysical thinking In this regard, thinking what Derrida labels writing is central A main point in Of Grammatology however, is that Derrida is speaking of two different sorts of writing that which writing is traditionally understood to be, that is, marks on a page or writing conceived in the narrower sense Derrida will say, but also, and centrally in terms of the book s thesis, wr [...]

    7. a Revised 40th Anna Edition.b Maybe I really should read it this time I love this shit.c If you ve not read this, don t say deconstruction.d If you ve not read Husserl, don t say deconstruction.e You like it simple Derrida does nothing than continue the Heideggarian project of Destruktion.f If you ve not read Hegel, you don t know Derrida Like all those Lit Crit folks from Yale you like to talk about all the time.g This has nothing to do with your Empirical Sciences Your Empirical Sciences are [...]

    8. How does one write a review when the word itself is a supplement To begin writing the review is to say I do not intend on coming back to the text, I do not expect to re view this book again, so what I am willing to review will supplant the catastrophe that the text ruptured in my being Many have cursed this text and I m sure many others before and after because Derrida evokes a prose that brings many to their wits end Jacques Lacan with similar complaints about his texts not making sense or bein [...]

    9. I enjoyed reading the other reviews on this book and empathized with those who found Derrida unnecessarily dense His essay, Structure, Sign, and Play in the Discourse of the Human Sciences, for example, though important, certainly lacks a riveting prose style.In my own possibly simplistic interpretation, deconstruction works impossibly, of course at ground zero It is an attempt to flatten preconceptions Derrida explains in Of Grammatology, how Rousseau s writing subverts the nature culture binar [...]

    10. Derrida is difficult I read this to write a paper on Aretxaga sShattering Silence and found it to be quite illuminating once I read every sentence four times.

    11. The science of linguistics determines language its field of objectivity in the last instance and in the irreducible simplicity of its essence, as the unity of the phon , the glossa, and the logos This determination is by rights anterior to all the eventual differentiations that could arise within the systems of terminology of the different schools language speech langue parole code message scheme usage linguistic logic phonology phonematics phonetics glossematics And even if one wished to keep s [...]

    12. This book is based on both deconstruction that Derrida expands and improves here and construction which he performs after untangling the ideas of both Ferdinand de Saussure and Jean Jacques Rousseau Derrida reveals the paradoxes existing in both writers works and the way how they stick to binary oppositions and resting everything upon the centre or origin, which, according to Derrida does not exist at all Later he acquits that side of binary opposition which has always been othered or, as Derrid [...]

    13. If you were easily impressed by Socrates getting alot of cred simply for being a troll, you ll find alot to love here.But otherwise, never before has so little of such small impact been said with so many words, expended from the text like the spore cloud of a dying mushroom Postmodernists parade their relativism as a superior kind of humility the modest acceptance that we cannot claim to have the truth In fact, the postmodern denial of truth is the worst kind of arrogance In denying that the nat [...]

    14. The best way to read this is by skipping Gayatri Spivak s useless and ponderous foreword The rest is a pretty banal but I guess unique observation on the supplementarity of writing to the spoken word wrapped up in a ton of hackwork Compared to Limited Inc, this, and Writing and Difference, Derrida s later works are generally easily comprehended, like Work of Mourning, Acts of Religion, etc Like Foucault, Derrida enjoyed a late but breathtaking conversion to something like liberalism, and ultima [...]

    15. Derrida is difficult But it s almost the difficulty that makes him worth reading His prose is multi layered and at times profoundly performative This text in particular rewards very careful perusal an idea essential to his project as a whole Deconstruction for Derrida is about un building in order to see the elements of language in pieces and thus be better able to grapple with and understand the connections and significations they make as a whole.

    16. A definitive classic Don t let philosophical conservatives deter you from reading this book It may be a challenge, but it changed the rules and redefined the limits of what philosophy is in the Western tradition A must read

    17. My claim to have read this MoFo is a flat out lie What HAS read Who indeed CAN read it I couldn t finish page one Can you help me

    18. no one realizes that there is a significance to the fact that rousseau preferred jerking off to having sex.

    19. Had to start the review provisionally considering my thoughts here were too long for a update will revise.The pagination of my book is different, so, to clarify, I m on only on p 14 of the primary text, which begins on page 6 after the Exergue in the Chakravorty Spivak version Note Spivak s preface is 79 dense pages Here are some of my thoughts thus far On the second page of the primary text I find myself both tempted to dismiss Derrida s argument on the basis of his expansion of the concept of [...]

    20. First, what Derrida is not saying He is not saying Everything is relative He is not saying, There are no absolutes That s what the American university professor believes, but that s not Derrida So in one swoop 99% of Conservative Culture Warrior criticisms of postmodernity are false.French Postmodernism is not as difficult as it may appear Derrida does a good job in defining his terms, and as long as we keep those definitions present, much of what he says is not only coherent, but quite insightf [...]

    21. To venture only a simplistic analysis of this text the involuted implications of whose language destabilize any sense of certainty in an interpretation Derrida s Of Grammatology is a meditation on absence, negation, or the subjective other as a structuring necessity, inherent within the classical metaphysics which predicates its notion of being upon transcendent presence By following the internal contradictions within critiques of the written that is to say, re presentative form of language in w [...]

    22. Derrida is not only frustrating to read but exceptionally dull and abstract His thoughts are not that hard to understand The essential issues are pretty straightforward, but he makes it extremely difficult to follow In any case, I need to say that, though textual analysis is a decent strategy, Derrida himself didn t furnish clear printed examinations with adequate references in this work We would need to read long pages with no reference despite the fact that he continues alluding to the works o [...]

    23. thank god for this bookshelf so i can take my time coming back to this one of the concepts from saussure that continues to pester me regards how the sign s arbitrariness proves its motivation i get that the subject is the object, but how does the aleatoric express intent the last half the book is strictly thinking with rousseau writing an origin story about writing origins to unpack the metaphysical baggage of enlightenment anthropologisms regarding binarisms and the fantasy of presence this par [...]

    24. I didn t finish the book I got to page 289 27 short of the end and just couldn t go any further So if there was a brilliant insight located in the last 27 pages, I missed it.This book was an utter waste of my time That s not necessarily a reflection on Derrida It may be that I am an idiot Either way, I got nothing of value from it, so there s not much that I can say about it.My guess is it s Derrida, though I would suggest you stay away from this book unless 1 you re required to read it, or 2 y [...]

    25. A wonderful exploration of Derrida s early work with an introduction to many notions he will develop in other works e.g supplement, trace, etc The significance of certain portions such as his exploration of harmony and melody in Rousseau escaped me However, in the end, he returns with powerful conclusions about indispensability of representation, the desire for presence via the image versus via the alphabet , and the West s expanding influence what we call globalization However, I m glad that I [...]

    26. D This book Completes the Nietzschean critique of metaphysics by way of Heidegger It s extremely repetitious and the author sees himself as a critic of everything but once you get the hang of it it s actually quite fun, and certainly devastating to philosophy This book has a subversive radical feel that I m very much attracted to It s unfortunate that he uses the word text all the time, because it is very definitely a work of philosophy in the Romantic tradition of Hume Schopenhauer Nietzsche an [...]

    27. I had to read this for a critical theory course in graduate school The impenetrable prose made me want to pull out my hair, and I m pretty sure the emperor is naked in this case I only made it through with the help of Harry Potter a chapter of Derrida and three chapters of The Prisoner of Azkaban.
