[quote="Cu'jara Cinmoi":31yoq7fr][quote:31yoq7fr]But I'm slowly beginning to grasp part of what Derrida is saying there. It's going to take a while to retrain my mind to think that way. I'm still in my Foucault stage, ya know Something about archaeologies of knowledge appeals to me more than what Derrida wrote [/quote:31yoq7fr] I actually think that the [i:31yoq7fr]Archaeology[/i:31yoq7fr] Foucault is the worst of the many Foucaults - still too caught up in the structuralist backlash against phenomenology (Sartre was too popular to be cool). Otherwise, though, I agree: there's a formalism to Derrida that I (now) find very problematic. If you want help deciphering him, though, just throw some questions/quotes my way. It'd do me some good to shake the rust off![/quote:31yoq7fr] I'll certainly take you up on that! (See above reply) As for my readings of Foucault so far, I've noticed what you're saying about his move away from the Structuralist model (did notice that Derrida zinged him on that one). Thing is, I haven't read the earlier Foucault until now - I really thought what he did with [i:31yoq7fr]Disclipine and Punish[/i:31yoq7fr] was incredible, but that might be one of his more accessible works, now that I think about it. I'm curious about this formalism problem - anything specific you can point out to me? I'll ask more later - received my copy of MiƩville's latest novel just now and will be reading that tonight before dipping back into Derrida and then Foucault. view post
