Overview


"From each of these punctual documents, supplemented by numerous helpful translator's notes, emerges the clear profile of Derrida's principled and relentless commitment to the teaching of philosophy as a right in any democracy worthy of the name."—The Year’s Work in Critical and Cultural Theory
"Some books recommend themselves by what is written therein; others are to be recommended for what they may inspire their readers to think, say, and do. Few books fall into both categories; the collection of pieces that is Eyes of the University does. But here, near the end, I have chosen my words carefully: "what they may inspire." The rest is up to us."—Philosophy and Rhetoric
