Derrida, Husserl, and the               Commentators: A Developmental Approach

Show Summary Details


This chapter responds to the task set out in the conclusion of Chapter 1, by tuning to what is known as the Husserl/Derrida debate. It shows that still-unrecognized significant change does take place in the thought of Derrida between his 1962 “Introduction to Husserl's Origin of Geometry” and the occurrence of deconstructive proper in 1967. The positions of Derrida thus start out closer to Husserl's than others have previously believed.

Keywords: Husserl/Derrida debate; skepticism; Jacques Derrida; Husserl; commentators
