This introductory chapter sets out the purpose of the book, which is to draw bright lines around the positions of Jacques Derrida. The following chapters all assume that the best possible solution to the issue of how satisfactorily to read and comment on the writings of Derrida is to insert his thought and work into already existing fields. Several studies are included in this book such as Husserlian phenomenology, analytic philosophy of language, literary criticism, and the intellectual history of modernity. These are helpful in providing a clearer explanation of Derrida's contribution to keeping alive a certain heritage of thinking.

Keywords: writings; Husserlian phenomenology; analytic philosophy; literary criticism; history of modernity; thinking
