Summary and Info
Gilles Deleuze and Jacques Derrida are the two leading philosophers of French post-structuralism. Their work on "philosophies of difference" has redrawn the map of literary studies, philosophy, cultural and film studies, science studies, as well as ethics and feminist, postcolonial and political theory. Both theorists have been widely studied but very little has been done to examine the relation between them. "Between Deleuze and Derrida" explores and compares their work via a number of key themes, including the philosophy of difference, language, memory, time, event, and love, as well as relating these themes to their respective approaches to philosophy, literature, politics and mathematics.
