Reviews

'Over the coming decades [Derrida's] work will be repeatedly examined to find what in it calls forth new futures for reading, writing and thinking. James K. A. Smith's lucid and comprehensive guide to Derrida places its readers in an enviable vantage point to see those diverse futures as they begin to arrive and change our lives.' Kevin Hart, Professor and Chair of English, University of Notre Dame
'[will] excite and engage'--Arnab Chatterjee, Political Studies Review
'James K.A. Smith has written a lively, sure-footed guide to key landmarks in the immense territory of Derrida' thought .... The task of reading Derrida has only just begun and Smith's book issues an open and congenial invitation to get on with it. ' Peggy Kamuf, Marion Frances Chevalier Professor of French and Comparative Literature, University of Southern California
'James K. A. Smith's Jacques Derrida: Live Theory is extremely accessible - it is very well-written in a clear and attractive prose, moving smoothly across many different topics at a good pace ... his choice of themes offers a good representation of the main dimensions of Derrida's thought ... Smith takes the reader on an engaging and very lucid tour of Derrida's oeuvre.'--Sanford Lakoff "Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews "
