Written by Derrida scholars, philosophers, and classicists, Derrida and Antiquity analyses a dialogue with the ancient world in the work of one of the greatest philosophers of the twentieth century. Through an analysis of Derrida's work it explores the relationship between modern philosophyand Plato, the role ancient concepts of democracy have played in modern political debates, and the place of antiquity in contemporary discussions about Europe, as well as investigating the influence that deconstruction has had on the study of classical literature, ancient philosophy, and earlyreligion. The volume is prefaced by a previously untranslated essay by Derrida, 'We Other Greeks'.
Miriam Leonard is Lecturer in Greek Literature and its Reception at University College London.
