4.0 out of 5 stars Take it or leave it, 24 Oct 2003
This review is from: Writing and Difference (Routledge Classics) (Paperback)
Reviewing Derrida is trying to put value on something that goes beyond the categories of "like" or dislike". Derrida is as opaque, cryptic, oblique and impossible to follow as you can imagine, but if one has the courage and pertinacity to follow through (as much as it can be followed), it discovers a spirit of extraordinary brilliance and originality. In any case, Derrida is already part of 20th century history, so no educated Westerner can afford to overlook him. As for the book itself ( I guess that is the point of this review), it comes in a cheap package, so I presume it targets a wide readership. If this is so, one could use a minimal commentary or an introduction, and, definitely, a concise glossary.

Many hoaxers and con-artists are also part of 20th century history. Can we afford to overlook any of them? I think we can! By your argument we can't.
