Deconstruction as Skepticism

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines canonical treatments of early texts such as those of Jonathan Culler and Christopher Norris. It also focuses on the philosophical problem of skepticism in order to argue that Derrida always wished to keep a distance from all forms of skepticism, and that he repeatedly turned to Husserl's phenomenology in order to do so.

Keywords: deconstruction; skepticism; Jonathan Culler; Christopher Norris; Husserlian phenomenology
