Industry Reviews

"Deconstruction and Critical Theory marks a new stage in the reception history of Dernda's work and in the wider philosophical debate around deconstruction. Zima's study makes a strikingly original contribution to our better understanding of deconstruction and its various philosophic sources." Christopher Norris, University of Wales at Cardiff
