Overview

For many readers of Jacques Derrida, the philosopher's work since the appearance of The Post Card in 1987 has been enriched by a new set of concerns and questions. In Later Derrida, Herman Rapaport offers four extended essays that examines Derrida's work of the past fifteen years. Drawing on his own deep familiarity with theory and with Derrida's work in particular, he shows what Derrida has to say on such subjects as postcolonialism, monolingualism, trauma, memory, and the archive. Of particular interest to readers of Derrida will be Rapaport's explanation of the concepts of Gemeinschaft (sect, society, etc.) and Gesellschaft (democracy, globalization, etc.) in the French philosopher's work. The essays also consider Derrida's relation to the work of Trinh Minh-ha, Gayatri Spivak, Artaud, and Heidegger.
This lucid book will be a necessary companion to all readers of Derrida's writing.
