Who Was Jacques Derrida? is the first intellectual biography of Derrida, the first full-scale appraisal of his career, his influence, and his philosophical roots. It is also the first attempt to define his crucial importance as the ambassador of "theory," the phenomenon that has had a profound influence on academic life in the humanities.

    CHAPTER 1. The Apophatic §1. God Is Not différance. An Impossible Situation. The messianic tone of deconstruction was not at all evident at the start. Instead, in the midst of what looked more like a certain Nietzschean tone recently adopted in French philosophy in the s, Derrida was visited with a suggestive "objection" that occasioned his first encounter with theology.   To the Editor: John Sturrock, in his review of Jacques Derrida's ''Glas'' (Sept. 13), betrays his ignorance of a fundamental core of Western literature and civilization when he says he is baffled.

    Based on Jewish law's emphasis on matrilineal descent, even religiously conservative Orthodox Jewish authorities would accept an atheist born to a Jewish mother as fully Jewish. A study found that half of all American Jews have doubts about the existence .   For better or worse, Derrida continues to be a dominant figure in the academic humanities. There's a steady stream of books about and by him (during his life Derrida published about seventy books; there have been at least a half-dozen more since he died, six years ago). Most of the books about Derrida take him as gospel truth, claiming that he uncovered, for the first time, an .

That is to say, it is based on the well-known European cliched constructions of "the wandering Jew" or the "Jew as other," in contrast to an informed understanding of any actual Judaism. In the Israeli school system, the fact that Derrida was born to a Jewish mother (an Algerian, to boot!) is a thousand times more important than his work and its cultural context.

Leonard Lawlor - Sparks Professor of Philosophy, Pennsylvania State University 'Drawing on a wealth of previously untapped sources and displaying a sure-handed command of postwar French philosophy and theology, Edward Baring presents us with a new and arresting interpretation of Derrida's origins.

The book arrived on time and in perfect condition. I bought it because I was working in Derrida's link's with Judaism, but I find the authors approach to the subject is more a"psychological" than a philosophical one.
