about

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.
