This quantity offers with the relation among Jacques Derrida’s writing and Neoplatonism (ancient, patristic, medieval). ranging from the incontrovertible fact of Derrida’s non-stop engagement with this practice, the current learn offers not just with the particular interpreting of the Neoplatonists through Derrida (“Derrida after Neoplatonism”) but in addition with a hypothetical interpreting of Derrida by means of Neoplatonism (“Neoplatonism after Derrida”). hence, the meant viewers is either philologists and philosophers drawn to the come across of historic and modern idea. Separate chapters are dedicated to a common learn of Neoplatonism and Deconstruction, commentaries on 3 Derridean texts during which their 'Neoplatonic' implications are constructed, and a remedy of the matter of non-discursive suggestion within which all Neoplatonic and Derridean views are transcended.
