In Jacques Derrida: Opening Lines, Marian Hobson gives us a thorough and elegant analysis of this controversial and seminal contemporary thinker. Looking closely at the language and the construction of some of Derrida's philosophy, Hobson suggests the way he writes, indeed the fact he writes in another language, affects how he can be understood by English speakers.
This superb study on the question of language will make illuminating reading for anyone studying or engaged with Derrida's philosophy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Provide[s] a series of sophisticated lines that re-open our critical conditioning."
-"MLR
"In this exceptionally sophisticated book Marian Hobson has done what no other book to date on Derrida has done: to explore the relation of argument to the mode of writing. This suberb study on the question of language in Derrida, shows Derrida's work to stage incalulable possibilities of connection from whence future commentaries are allowed to proceed."
-Rodolphe Gasche, SUNY-Buffalo
"Of the very many books on Derrida that have already appeared, Marian Hobson's must surely count as one of the most challenging and stimulating.."
-Alan Montefiore, University of Oxford
