Jacques Derrida's philosophy of deconstruction has been a key reference in the social sciences for more than 25 years. This work, in four volumes, is a comprehensive, thematically organized review of the key secondary literature on Derrida's writing. It provides a systematic overview of the core conceptual vocabulary informing Deconstruction, identifying published works that most clearly and significantly discuss Derrida's thought. Together these four volumes represent an essential reference for researchers and students in social theory, cultural studies, philosophy, literature and linguistics.
