Philosophy, Art, and the Specters of Jacques Derrida by Gray Kochhar-Lindgren
Although there is a significant literature on the philosophy of Jacques Derrida, there are few analyses that address the deconstructive critique of phenomenology as it simultaneously plays across range of cultural productions including literature, painting, cinema, new media, and the structure of the university. Using the critical figures of “ghost” and “shadow”—and initiating a vocabulary of phantomenology—this book traces the implications of Derridean “spectrality” on the understanding of contemporary thought, culture, and experience.
