Series: Perspectives in Continental Philosophy

Ineffable Knowledge and                 Gender1

Show Summary Details


This chapter provides evidence to prove that Jacques Derrida's philosophy is continental, particularly in terms of his thoughts on gender and ineffable knowledge. It highlights an exchange at the interface of continental and analytic philosophies in a May 1999 conference titled “Arguing with Derrida”. This chapter provides another example that makes a similar distinction between these two philosophies and explains the philosophical relevance of Derrida for the question of ineffability and mysticism.

Keywords: Jacques Derrida; continental philosophy; analytic philosophy; gender; ineffable knowledge; Arguing with Derrida; mysticism
