If you are afraid to read this book because you don t want people to see you reading a for beginners book publicly, think about it this way anybody who doesn t know who Derrida is won t care, and anybody who does know who Derrida is will appreciate any attempt to figure out what the heck he was saying I m a big fan of post structuralism and the writings of Derrida, and I picked up this book for some light reading but it is definitely not light reading This is a tough book that you need to devote [...]

Another great entry for this series If you ve ever heard the word process concept of deconstruction then you ve been reading listening to someone influenced by Derrida He was a prolific writer so this introductory book focuses on his initial development of deconstruction and explains how deconstruction works The gist of deconstruction is that no text is univocal and, thus, all texts are open to multiple interpretations Deconstruction usually happens in the form of identifying and interpreting bi [...]

Jacques Derrida is kind of a collective frustration for most intellectual people such as myself and I have made my mission to get at least a basic understanding of his philosophy DERRIDA FOR BEGINNERS isn t exactly a one stop shop Jim Powell wrote other volumes on the canonical French thinker , but it s a pretty darn great starting point Powell gives historical and cultural insight on how post structuralism came to be and how Jacques Derrida came to occupy such an important place in that movemen [...]

Estou at vendo eu misturar propositalmente Derrida com Lacan na pr tica cl nica R No mais esse livrinho bem interessante e um dos melhores como introdu o ao pensamento de Derrida, porque essa s rie pode ser para principiantes e cheios de figuras, mas nenhum deles pega leve na conceitua o te rica.

This book is fun Very easy to read, lots of cartoons And very insightful into the life of a conflicted, brilliant man Insightful into his difficult to grasp writings as well.Highly recommended to anyone living in the U.S or the West altogether born between 1930 and the date you read this post.

Don t let the comic book aspect of this fool you This is actually pretty dense, yet it only touches on the general idea behind Derrida s deconstruction I do feel, though, that I can finally read something from Derrida and not be completely lost, and I can also start forming some opinion on whether or not I agree with his claims, but, still, I m not absolutely clear on what Derrida actually wanted to accomplish through his complete inversion and evisceration of Western philosophy even after readi [...]

i m kind of embarrassed to admitting reading this, but who cares i found it in JB s library, and it had a lot of wear on the spine, so i think he liked it too in any case, i ve read derrida before, but i feel i needed some preparation before i hit up truth in painting it s pretty concise it s goofy, but it s very thorough thumbs up.


Elizabeth

what a delightful romp through philosophy with all the cartoon characters and the silliness and jokes along the way What a fun way to dip one s toes into any subject at all in this series I am much smarter now and can discuss deconstruction as well as anyone I m a big fan of these books They are a joy to read Looking now to read the Philosophers for Beginners now.

I read through this a year ago without an awareness of the mammoth Derrida was Now as I dive into post modernism, this was an invaluable primer.As with most books in this serious, For Beginners offers a great survey of material Although surface level due to its brevity and I don t think I fully completed the Derrida book , it proves its importance in that you ll understand the whole picture when getting into deeper works Even if you don t feel competent reading Derrida himself, this overview is [...]


Adam

Derrida is at the heart of the post modern movement in philosophy and it seemed valuable to get some idea of what his ideas were In Powell s lucid and clever presentation, it becomes clear that he did advance a preponderance of pomo premises in both philosophy and literature, but also why his works are notoriously abstruse and stymying Throughout the book, I kept thinking yes, that s a core tenet of my worldview and something that makes a lot of sense, but why did he ever choose to explain it li [...]

Ideal para aquellos que queremos entrar al mundo de Derrida pero no tenemos idea de por donde empezar y que esperar de l Personalmente, creo que me faltan m s lecturas para poder llegar a la literatura de Derrida, y ste libro me ayud a darme cuenta.Buena introducci n.


Scott

I think I get it


Mike Jensen

If you believe that when you say, The fire truck is red, you get to determine that red refers to the color and anyone who insists you mean, The fire truck is socialist, is wrong, you will not like Derrida He insists that the socialist option is valid While speaking and writing are not the same, Derrida insists they are as opposite as poison and cure Derrida was certainly wrong A lot Based on his latter speeches, I believe he was a fraud He fooled thousands of people This book does a fair job exp [...]

Have to give this book some love for even attempting to explain in clear prose and poke fun at notoriously abstruse, academic knowledge It s what every grad student is thinking why can t they just say what they mean minus the jargon and lofty, circular language Being new to Derrida, I can t say whether this book adequately represents the man s ideas Still, a spirited effort is a spirited effort.


Michael

Let s start with the obvious Derrida is complex Very complex Even a lighthearted comic book presentation can t overcome that, but it s a fun way to try to understand the basics of his philosophies If you love the minutia of language and meaning then exploring Derrida s ideas is a good way to gain perspective on how humans communicate.


William Durden

As with any intro book to a complicated thinker topic, there are points that I think are covered well, and places where I think important information is missing As an introduction, it serves its function well enough But my own understanding of Derrida is colored by interpretations not represented here.


Leonardo

No me gust mucho Creo que en buena medida no lo termin de entender, pero me parece que es poco relevante lo que propone Derrida En vez de revalorarlo creo que ahora me interesa menos Es una primera aproximaci n, hab a escuchado bastante sobre el asunto de la deconstrucci n, ahora entiendo un poco m s a que se referian.


Lucas

If you are reading this review, it may very well be too late, however I had a much easier time understanding Deconstructionalism from this book than the Deconstruction for Beginners of the same series Essentially easy to read, but it still required full rapt attention.


Ahimaaz R

A real decent intro to Derrida makes me really want to read a Derrida for real


Dawn

I still didn t understand Derrida after this Perhaps that s my fault.


Sally

What kind of magic would it take to get the CSU library to stock this book


Brent

I love Beginners books.


Kunjila Mascillamani

Meaning is fascist Don t understand why most philosophers are obsessed with translating all of it to hymen Such an insignificant entity Derrida rocks.

OMFG I love comics again
