To Deconstruct That which We Cannot Live Without: The strategies of Jacques Derrida

in progress

Open PEI Summer Course by Manuel Asensi

Although the words that give this course its title are Gayatri Spivak's, they could easily have been Derrida's.

The term Deconstruction has been assimilated into film language, politics and even gastronomy. As such, this course should be seen as a gesture of resistance to the institutional appropriation of this philosophical approach. Over several sessions, Manuel Asensi will examine the keys of Derridian thought as strategies for defence and attack against fascism.

It is a way of finding a path through the labyrinth of Derrida's essays, one of the most radical and singular expressions of the theory of discourse that straddles two centuries, and also a means to find ways of responding to the habits of historic naturalisation that all too often make life invisible.
