Positions is a collection of three interviews with Jacques Derrida that illuminate and make more accessible the complex concepts and terms treated extensively in such works as Writing and Difference and Dissemination. Derrida takes positions on his detractors, his supporters, and the two major preoccupations of French intellectual life, Marxism and psychoanalysis.

The interviews included in this volume offer a multifaceted view of Derrida. Implications: Interview with Henri Ronse contains a succinct statement of principles. Seminology and Grammatology: Interview with Julia Kristeva provides important clarifications of the role played by linguistics in Derrida's work. Positions: Interview with Jean-Louis Houdebine and Guy Scarpetta is a wide-ranging discussion that touches on many of the polemics that Derrida's work as provoked.

Alan Bass, whose translation of Writing and Difference was highly praised for its clarity, accuracy, and readability, has provided extremely useful critical notes, full of vital information, including historical background.
