Jacques Derrida was Director of Studies at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris, and Professor of Humanities at the University of California, Irvine. Stanford has published twelve of his books, most recently Without Alibi (2002) and Negotiations: Interventions and Interviews, 1971-2001 (2002).
"This book is of extraordinary importance. It collects one of the most important and underappreciated aspects of Derrida's work - his investigations into the institutions of philosophical research and teaching - in a definitive and comprehensive volume. These essays are crucial to an understanding of Derrida, and their publication in English is a milestone." - Thoman Keenan, Bard College
