At the beginning of last year, I was involved briefly in a reading group at the University of Sussex, the topic of which was the writings of Jacques Derrida. I wrote, at that point, a computer program to generate nicely presented versions of my notes and hereby present the resulting notes because the domain they were hosted on is now set to expire and I have no interest in maintaining it further.

Notes on the writings of Jacques Derrida


This site is designed to offer, under the terms of the GFDL, my notes on the writings of Jacques Derrida. It is a work in progress; indeed, only just begun. All notes are available in XHTML (Web), PDF (Adobe Reader) and ODT (OpenOffice) formats. The styling is deliberately sparse; the works here are functional.

Many thanks go to: Robin Bagon and Katie Reid for their insightful comments and discussions. The XHTML versions of the notes are created with the aid of a piece of software entitled, aptly, xhtmlnotes which I have written and which is released under the terms of the GPL.

All content on this site is copyright (c) 2009 Martin Eve. Works are licenced under the GFDL, more information about which is available at the GFDL website.
