Product description

From the Back Cover

Is giving possible? Insofar as it enters into the circle of exchange (gift and countergift, debt, acquittal, compensation, symbolic recognition, memory), the gift seems to get annulled. In order to give, one would have to expect nothing in return: to hope for nothing, to count on nothing from what must remain incalculable. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

About the Author

Jacques Derrida (1930-2004) was director of studies at the ecole des hautes etudes en sciences sociales, Paris, and professor of humanities at the University of California, Irvine. He is the author of many books published by the University of Chicago Press.
