Overview

Psyche: Inventions of the Other is the first publication in English of the essay collection Jacques Derrida published in two volumes in 1998 and 2003. In Volume I, Derrida advances his thinking on many topics: psychoanalysis, theater, translation, literature, representation, racism, and nuclear war, among others. The essays in this volume also carry on Derrida's engagement with a number of key thinkers and writers: Barthes, Benjamin, de Man, Flaubert, Freud, Heidegger, Lacoue-Labarthe, Levinas, and Ponge. Included here are new or revised translations of seminal essays, such as "Psyche: Invention of the Other," "The Retrait of Metaphor," "At This Very Moment in This Work Here I Am," "Tours de Babel," and "Racism's Last Word," as well as three essays that appear here in English for the first time.
