Jacques Derrida
Birth: Jul. 15, 1930
Algiers, Algeria
Death: Oct. 8, 2004
City of Paris
Île-de-France, France

French Philosopher. Best remembered for his "deconstruction theory" - a complex school of thought which unpicks text in order to reveal its hidden meanings. During his career he taught at the Sorbonne and several universities in America. His writings include Speech and Phenomena (1973), Writing and Difference (1978), Positions (1981), Margins of Philosophy (1983), The Ear of the Other (1988), The Other Heading (1991) and Spectres of Marx (1994). (bio by: Bunny Boiler)

I wish I could weep at your grave. The process and journey would be long and convoluted. If you were alive, I'd ask you about Pascal and you'd be offended, I assume. I'm sorry. Thank-you!!!
