Husserl's singular role in Derrida's thinking cannot be fully attributed to his being the first paradigm or examplar of deconstruction, says Marrati (humanities, Johns Hopkins U.). Rather it is only through his particular interpretation of Husserl's work that Derrida is able to formulate the questions that he will continually repeat and alter.
