Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: It is now widely accepted that The Ethics of Deconstruction was the first book to argue for the ethical turn in Derrida's work. Critchley shows as powerfully as possible how deconstruction and persuasive ethical consequences are vital to our thinking through of questions relating to politics and democracy. Parts of the book have been published in several European languages and a complete edition will appear in German next year. This new edition will update and confirm this title as a standard reference work in the area of French philosophy and theory.

About: In opposition to the polemics claiming that the work of Jacques Derrida is a species of nihilistic textual free play that suspends all questions of value and is therefore immoral and politically pernicious, this book argues that Derridian deconstruction can and indeed should be understood as an ethical demand, provided that ethics is understood in the particular and radical sense given to it in the work of Emmanuel Levinas.
