Jacques Derrida’s revolutionary approach to phenomenology, psychoanalysis, structuralism, linguistics, and indeed the entire European tradition of philosophy—called deconstruction—changed the face of criticism. It provoked a questioning of philosophy, literature, and the human sciences that these disciplines would have previously considered improper. Forty years after Of Grammatology first appeared in English, Derrida still ignites controversy, thanks in part to Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak’s careful translation, which attempted to capture the richness and complexity of the original. This fortieth anniversary edition, where a mature Spivak retranslates with greater awareness of Derrida’s legacy, also includes a new afterword by her which supplements her influential original preface. Judith Butler has added an introduction. All references in the work have been updated. One of contemporary criticism’s most indispensable works, Of Grammatology is made even more accessible and usable by this new release.

Die dreibandige Schriftenreihe ist ein Kompendium des heutigen Forschungsstandes zu Sprache und Recht. Die wichtigsten Ansatze namhafter Protagonisten auf dem Gebiet der Rechtslinguistik sind hierin gesichtet, gesammelt und ausfuhrlich besprochen. Neben einer Verortung der einzelnen Beitrage im sprach- und rechtswissenschaftlichen Diskurs erfolgt die Darlegung und Erorterung der aktuellen Forschungssituation, welche die Grundprobleme und Tendenzen der Forschung erkennen lasst. Dies erscheint um so notwendiger, als fur die mit dem Gegenstand befassten Sprach-, Rechts- und Sozialwissenschaftler bislang ein umfassendes Nachschlagewerk fehlt, das sie unmittelbar an die Forschungs-probleme heranfuhrt. Die Schriftenreihe bietet Interessierten aller Fachrichtungen erstmals ein Arbeitsinstrument, das sie rasch und zuverlassig uber den gegenwartigen Stand der Kenntnisse zur Sprache des Rechts informiert. Es folgen die Bande Recht verhandeln. Argumentieren, Begrunden und Entscheiden im Diskurs des Rechts (Band 2) und Recht vermitteln. Strukturen, Formen und Medien der Kommunikation im Recht (Band 3).

Understanding Poststructuralism presents a lucid guide to some of the most exciting and controversial ideas in contemporary thought. This is the first introduction to poststructuralism through its major theorists - Derrida, Deleuze, Foucault, Lyotard, Kristeva - and their central texts. Each chapter takes the reader through a key text, providing detailed summaries of the main points of each and a critical and detailed analysis of their central arguments. Ideas are clearly explained in terms of their value to both critical thinking and to contemporary issues. Criticisms of poststructuralism are also assessed. The aim throughout is to illuminate the main methods of poststructuralism - deconstruction, libidinal economics, genealogy and transcendental empiricism - in context. A balanced and up-to-date assessment of poststructuralism, the book presents the ideal introduction to this most revolutionary of philosophies.

When addressed in its full reactive potential, gender has a tendency to unfix the reassuring certainties of education and academia. Gender pedagogy unfolds as an account of teaching gender learning that is rooted in Derrida's concept of the 'trace', reflecting the unfixing properties of gender and even shaking up academic knowledge production.
